“We have designed the world’s most advanced UV robot, which is also the world’s simplest to use,” says Per Juul Nielsen, CEO of UVD Robots. “Anyone can install the robot in a matter of minutes and immediately put it into operation, disinfecting bacteria and viruses from the air and any surface.”
The third-generation robot from UVD Robots can also navigate and operate in very small and narrow environments, which opens up new market opportunities such as the autonomous disinfection of small hotel rooms. The new robot has a significantly smaller footprint than its predecessor, yet boasts exactly the same disinfection strength.
“Our third generation autonomous mobile UV-C disinfection robot is the world’s first of its generation and definitely a game-changer in many ways, that will forever change the future of the use of UV-C robots for disinfection across a range of industries,” says chairman of the board of UVD Robots, Claus Risager, and continues, “The robot has an unrivaled safety system that uses four layers of safety, enabling the robot to move around in all kinds of environments – even in highly-trafficked areas – as it shuts down if people get too close. It has a unique capability to sense, document and show users how well disinfected an area is, enabling users to easily and quickly adjust the process and optimize the quality if needed. A feature not found in any other UV-C disinfection robot in the world. All these unique features are patented.”
UVD Robots is a subsidiary of one of the world’s leading groups in the development of professional service robots, Blue Ocean Robotics, that also includes subsidiaries like GoBe Robots and PTR Robots.
