Combatting Covid-19 with Robots

State of the art robots capable of sanitising entire buildings are being deployed in the race to achieve COVID-security.

 

The automated machines map surroundings and use a combination of UV-C light and ozone to kill 99.9 percent of microorganisms on all surfaces by destroying their DNA structures. It’s an environmentally friendly and chemical-free way to quickly and safely eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses. Cleaning times start from just six minutes. As well as being quick and thorough, these machines have minimal operating costs.

 

Evolve Raybotics director, Amin Farah, says: "Our parent company worked hard to develop a practical and powerful solution to the pandemic, and the result is a game changer for businesses and organisations needing to swiftly disinfect their premises. Our robots provide a safe and thorough way to ensure peace of mind for staff and customers and have been in high demand here in the UK. We’re receiving an increasing number of enquiries as word spreads about what these robots can do."

 

The robots have been designed in Italy by a team of engineers with a history of working with high profile, innovative brands including Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati.  Parent company Autognity is renowned worldwide for its expertise in artificial intelligence and industrial automation.

 

Enzo Catenacci, co-founder of Raybotics NewCo and business development chief officer of Purity Group, of which Autognity is a part, adds: "When the pandemic hit, we talked about how we, as a well-resourced organisation, felt obliged to use our skills in engineering – inventing something new to contain the biological risk.

 

"Seeing daily infection rates rapidly increase meant bringing this product to market was time critical. The team worked around the clock to deliver a solution in less than two months despite supply chain challenges and swift onboarding of staff to facilitate speed. We have sold hundreds of units worldwide, with orders increasing day by day from a broad range of sectors including manufacturing, commercial cleaning, education, transport and healthcare.

 

"The feedback is very positive. Organisations are investing in these systems because they know they need to respond quickly to survive as a business. There is concern about the confidence and safety of the public and an obligation to do everything possible to support the recovery of our economy."

 

Evolve Raybotix have been conducting demonstrations online as well as socially distanced at client premises to showcase the capabilities of these machines.

 

Martin Morgan from Morgans Hotel in Swansea, comments: "When we heard that this technology was available in Swansea, we immediately requested a demonstration as it is an ideal solution to swift sanitisation of hotel rooms on changeover.  Guests have full confidence that their room, which is sealed following the disinfection process, has been sanitised to the highest possible standard."
