UV Robots Kill Coronavirus!
More development of UV Robots after scientists recently announced that UV light is effective in obliterating COVID-19
Robotics engineers are steadfastly working to create more robots with the ability to emit Ultraviolet (UV) light. This motivation comes after scientists recently announced that UV light is effective in obliterating COVID-19.
A team of hardware and software engineers at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland has successfully built UV robots that are capable of disinfecting corona virus contaminated areas. Since then, many patients that have tested positive for the corona virus have been waking up next to these machines.
Without question, this innovation has been to be a game changer. It has also been proven that these UV robots are actually capable of destroying COVID-19 much quicker than sterilizers or disinfectants. Moreover, there are also several other advantages that come along with using these autonomous UV robots. For example, hospitals can cut down on the usage of gaseous chemicals for sterilization that are generally uncomfortable for breathing or worse yet, harmful for people with weak respiratory systems or who may be suffering from conditions like asthma.
On top of that, there would be no need for medical staff to concern themselves with evacuating buildings or several room for hours until fumes have been dissolved. Furthermore, these robots are environment-friendly unlike those disinfectants, which environmentalists have labelled as air pollutants.
Gratefully, this innovation comes at a time when the world is in dire need of a faster method of getting rid of the virus. While these UV robots are in high demand, there are not enough of them. Part of the reason for this is that building the software and hardware systems for UV robots requires a substantial amount of time. Some companies are nonetheless making more of these robots to help end the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, medical authorities are optimistic that the impact of COVID-19 can drive further research in Robotics geared at tackling other deadly viruses in the future.
