The UAE’s first Covid-fighting robot is here!
July 6, 2020

Dubai-based Sanitizexperts have introduced the Automated UVC Robot, which uses ultraviolet light to provide a 360 degree disinfection of public space air.

The Ultraviolet and sterilization Robot uses intelligent pulse disinfection and nature navigation AI technology to automatically plan its path and judge the disinfection time required within the environment. Its radar vision and ultrasonic obstacle avoidance allows it to move freely around the space without colliding.

The Robot’s UV-C lamps, which can work up to 8000 hours, disinfect and kill bacteria effectively, yet safely. The Robot’s infrared system can recognize when a human is within reach and automatically shuts the lamp down.

Within just 150 minutes, the 800 square metres around the robot will be sanitized, which is around 10 times the efficiency of manual and fixed disinfection.

The Robot works through WiFi and can be managed with the click of a button either on a PC or through the App. The software will assist you in mapping the area you need to sanitize and even have multiple automated UVC robot working simultaneously. When the battery level energy is low, the Robot it will automatically go back to its station and charge.
