Cleaning and disinfecting public spaces have become increasingly important during the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on Lingnan University (LU)’s development of a successful free sanitisation service for over 1,000 subdivided flats by a mobile UV-C germicidal system last year, LU has achieved another breakthrough by constructing a smart Autonomous UV-C Disinfection Robot to provide thorough and efficient UV disinfection for large indoor establishments. While the whole disinfection process is automatic, it is far more effective and five times faster than manual disinfection with 1:99 diluted bleach.
The autonomous UV-C disinfection robot provides 360-degree coverage through ultraviolet rays, and sanitises every corner of a designated venue. It works on a 253.7 nm wavelength and obliterates viruses, bacteria and fungi with 99 per cent reliability, preventing the spread of pathogens through the air and on the surface of objects.
