DUBAI 8 July 2020: Sanitizexperts, a Dubai-based professionals team in home, office and industrial air sanitization, said they have introduced the Automated UVC Robot, the latest intelligence in the UAE in the fight against Covid-19.

Instead of harmful chemicals, sprays, smells and residue, the robot uses ultraviolet to provide a 360-degree disinfection of public space air.

The International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) has proven that UV disinfection technologies are a multiple barrier approach to reducing the transmission of the Covid-19 virus, the comppany said.

The ultraviolet 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, 800 square metres around the robot will be sanitized, which is around 10 times the efficiency of manual and fixed disinfection, the company claimed.

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 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.

Omar Chappuis, CEO of Sanitizexperts said: “The Automated UVC Robot is an exciting development against Covid-19, which we’re very excited to introduce to the UAE. Whether in a hospital, airport, mall, home or the office, the robot will ensure that bacteria are eliminated, allowing for clean, safe living.”
