UV DECONTAMINATION ROBOTS(Autonomous)
UV decontamination robots specialized for sterilization and disinfection in predetermined areas like workplaces and remote locations.UV disinfection and sterilization robot disinfect germs in the environment by decomposing their DNA systems, thus preventing and lessening the spread of viruses, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms. UV can automatically patrol, and it's capable of an autonomous system and automated charging.
The robot integrates 3 disinfection modes: ultraviolet, ultra-dry vaporized hydrogen peroxide, and air filtration to meet the demanding disinfection requirements in the healthcare sector. UV alone, at the optimal distance, can achieve 99.99 percent bacterial kill - including antibiotic-resistant bacteria and viruses. Combined with air-filtration, it forms a highly effective method of disinfecting and cleaning the surrounding air and achieving surface disinfection of surrounding walls, furniture, and fixings.
So far, we've discovered that public works and public safety departments are using robots to spray disinfectant throughout public spaces. Robots like drones provide thermal imagery to help specify infected residents and enforce quarantines and social distancing restraints.
At work and home, robots are helping in incredible ways. Robots have been used for goods circulation. Robots are used to show properties from the safety of their own homes; students use robots to walk the stage for graduation; a boy used a drone to walk his dog without violating stay-at-home restrictions.
Every crisis is different, but the knowledge of utilizing robots for the COVID-19 pandemic provides an opportunity to learn lessons detailed over the past decades finally. One vital lesson is that during a crisis, robots do not replace people. They either perform tasks that an individual could not do or do safely or take up duties that free up responders to deal with the increased workload.
To make the robots operate efficiently on various road surfaces, the team adopted a caterpillar chassis instead of wheels to improve their ability to surmount obstacles surmounting and climb slopes. A 360-degree camera platform on the top transmits videos and information in real-time, coupled with an intelligent vision algorithm that allows the operator to remotely locate affected areas and prevent the spread of infectious diseases at low cost.
UV disinfection is a chemical-free process and leaves behind no residue.UV requires no transportation and storage or handling of toxic or corrosive chemicals.No-touch automated disinfection eliminates human error in the disinfection process.
For example, to sanitize an operating theater, the bot would navigate itself around the room and approach high touch surfaces from all angles. High touch surfaces include not just operating equipment and patient beds, but door handles and equipment monitors. Further, the robot disinfectant process is not a cleaning process. Surfaces should be clean before the disinfectant process begins. In a warehouse, where racks can extend 30 feet vertically, and pickers select lifts' orders, these bots would not be effective. But the bots could disinfect high velocity pick locations, which are located ground level in locations that are easy to choose from. The bots could also be used in break rooms. Finally, packages could be staged and then disinfected before being shipped.
The process is initiated when the equipment is delivered, is that the route the bot will travel is established by having a person steering the bot around the building. The bot learns and memorizes its surroundings based on this. Following this, the bot uses sensors and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) technology to navigate autonomously. If there is an unexpected obstacle, a patient room chair is out of its proper location. For example, the bot will navigate the obstacle and send an alert to a designated team member showing that the location has not been disinfected.
UV Robot has a powerful integrated Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) system that enables autonomous driving. After a navigation route has been preset, the robot can navigate and spray disinfectant in the defined area.
Investing in UV disinfection and decontamination is a useful way to guarantee the highest prevention standards, securing your surfaces and areas are completely virus-free.
HOW DOES UV WORK?
UV works to kill microorganisms, such as fungi, viruses, and bacteria, through a specific light wavelength. The strength of UV is its capacity to eliminate these microorganisms' proteins, making them entirely harmless. The idea of UV isn't new for numerous medical, lab, and hospital settings. High-end UV technology is already utilized in full-bodied form for sanitizing and materials but should be brought into use in different work areas, remote services, and many more. The aim is to bring UV to more extensive areas than small, contained areas, providing outstanding safety levels for all.
Sterilization and disinfection capabilities: UV robot has two specializing modes: air circulating sterilization and UV disinfection and sterilization. In the procedure of UV disinfection and sterilization, condensed ultraviolet rays are radiated to eradicate bacteria and other harmful microorganisms, with a disinfection rate of 99%. This useful disinfection method effectively curbs cross-infection in high-risk areas.
Large working space: The two working modes, i.e., air circulating disinfection and sterilization and UV disinfection and sterilization, can efficiently ensure the impact of disinfection and sterilization in areas. A large space can be covered entirely in disinfection and sterilization using the covering for autonomous activity.
Wide range of disinfection and sterilization: The robot is capable of effectively killing microorganisms in the air, such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses, and has significant effects on harmful microorganisms in aerosols and the like.
Crewless operation: It reduces the investment in human resources and helps promote working efficiency and quality.
The robot also features autonomous operation and realizes timed, fixed-point, and multi-track mobile disinfection and sterilization in a large space, according to the preset route and time requirements.
Autonomous charging: The robot is capable of autonomous charging, continuous operation, low power early warning, and automatic recharging, thus effectively ensuring the endurance of this mobile device.
