Disinfection Bots to the prevention!

During these unprecedented times, various companies are on to creating these life-saving devices so desperately needed during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Some of these avengers that we have come across are the Disinfection robots.


UVD Robots, a Danish company formed from Odense University Hospital and Blue Ocean Robotics, has been at the forefront of providing disinfection robots to China to help fight the spread of the virus.

The self-driving robots disinfect hospitals and other areas with ultraviolet light. This limits the spread of corona virus without exposing hospital staff to the risk of infection. The robot is safe, reliable and eliminates human error. Furthermore, it is user friendly and is designed to be operated by every-day cleaning staff.

The company has sold robots to locations in Europe and U.S. that are experiencing outbreak issues.

UVD is also seeing requests from beyond the hospital and healthcare space, including a prison that was having problems with Covid-19 cases among the prisoner population.






Another set of bots have been from Los Angeles-based Dimer, that is offering its GermFalcon UV-C robots that are designed to disinfect airplanes, and its UVHammer robotic systems for hospitals and variable environments.

In mid-January, the company offered its services to the first three major U.S. airports where arrivals from China were taking place.





The MTR Corporation, which runs the Hong Kong subway, announced working with Avalon Biomedical (Management) Limited to develop the VHP Robot, which stands for Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide robot.

The robot ensures that disinfectants get into even small gaps that are otherwise difficult to reach during the regular cleaning process. This process can eliminate viruses and bacteria, including staphylococcus aureus, E. coli and so on.

VHP Robot has passed through relevant tests and is claimed to have achieved the required results.

In the event disinfection is to be carried out, the operator can pre-set the VHP Robot to operate automatically by pre-setting the floorplan of the required area. The operator can also remotely control the robot manually with a mobile device within a distance of 20m.

The robot is conducting deep cleaning and decontamination in train compartments and stations to protect passengers and staff.



Well these were a few of our prevention bots. Let us know if you've come across any such helpers!

Stay tuned for the latest updates!
