The disinfection robot was developed based on the results of multi—year R&D on automatic robot programming, autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance, sensor—based robot control, and novel drives and structures. It also provides a convenient and cost-effective solution to fight against the pandemic.
In order to achieve effective disinfection within a short period of time, studies have shown that UV light must be centimetres away from a surface as its strength decays significantly when being transmitted through the air. In response to this issue, the UV based surface disinfection robot can disinfect selected areas by bringing the UV light source centimetres away from surfaces to achieve effective and efficient disinfection within seconds. Additionally, the robot can autonomously navigate in crowded areas such as hotels lobbies, gyms, and libraries to conduct disinfection.
