UV infection control devices work based on UV light reflected from walls and other surfaces and absorbed by bacteria. Light-sensitive porphyrin molecules in bacteria are excited, resulting in oxidative damage and cell death.
The use of UV disinfection robots is increasing day by day. It is because of the various advantages they are equipped with; some of these advantages comprise the following:
Compared to human cleaning, a UV disinfection robot is more frequent; using labor won't offer this kind of consistency and back-to-back disinfection like robots do.
Home vacuum robots were the first autonomous machines to attract a large consumer base, proving that sensing and automation tech had advanced sufficiently to safely navigate the real world and perform a helpful action.
During the pandemic, airlines had to start performing deeper cleaning on aircraft to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Many companies responded with heavy-duty sterilization technology to target the virus, like hospital-grade disinfectants used to kill diseases like herpes, salmonella, and the avian flu.
Honest AgTech and Cleanlight have joined forces to further their autonomous crop protection system powered by UV-C technology.
The global service robotics market will reach US $42.2 Billion by 2027, according to a report from Research and Markets. Service robots are designed to assist humans and perform helpful tasks, excluding industrial and manufacturing automation applications. They operate semi or fully automatically and can perform tedious & dangerous tasks and provide enhanced efficiency and increased safety.
