UVD Robot – Infection Prevention in Industry
The UVD Robot® is used as part of the regular cleaning cycle, and aims at preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases, viruses, bacteria, and other types of harmful organic micro-organisms in the environment by breaking down their DNA-structure. The robot moves autonomously through a room, using UV-C light to destroy viruses providing an alternative method of decontaminating the environment during this epidemic period. Its highly effective against all bacteria and viruses in sensitive large areas as warehouses, offices or factories.
“This robot kills 99.99 percent of viruses, bacteria and fungal spores,” said Dr. Huscher, chief of oncological surgery, robotics and new technologies. “We don’t have any nurses, doctors or patients with coronavirus since we started to use the robots.”
Create a healthy and safe environment with UV-C disinfection
Although disinfection of the environment is achievable through a variety of fogging devices and typical cleaning methods, these are time consuming and can be expensive. UV-C light provides an alternative method of decontaminating the environment during this epidemic period. UV-C destroys viruses by high energy electrons passing through or diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic acid core, resulting in damage of the viral RNA.

The UVD Robot® is a fully autonomous system delivering fast, chemical free, hospital grade disinfection for healthcare, offices, factories, warehouses, etc. without human interaction. It is used as part of the regular cleaning cycle, and aims at preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases, viruses, bacteria, and other types of harmful organic micro-organisms in the environment by breaking down their DNA-structure. 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.
Our UVD Robot® disinfects small and large areas simply just by driving by. Depending on the exposure time, The UVD Robot can kill up to 99,99% of harmful pathogens such as covid-19. It disinfects all kinds of surfaces, which contains thousands of different bacteria, but also it can significantly reduce the bacterial count in the air. The UV-C light bulbs are powerful and highly effective against all bacteria and viruses, but at the same time very gentle to surfaces.
The germicidal characteristics of UV-C light at close range are well known. However, the laws of physics create obstacles that challenge the feasibility of using UV-C light as a disinfectant in larger areas: Shadow & Distance.
The unavoidable challenges of using UV-C disinfection governed by the laws of physics create the necessity for repositioning a manual UV-C device multiple times.
Only with the autonomous UVD Robots® can you be sure to have irradiated sufficient UV-C amounts on to all surfaces within a given area.
Ease Of Use
The robot is operated by following the easy step-by-step guide.
The autonomous drive system allows operators to easily call the robot via its tablet and send it to the desired location while the initial cleaning is taking place.
After the cleaning has been conducted, the robot is sent in. Once the disinfection has been activated, and the tablet placed on the door, the operator can continue their planned work elsewhere until it is finished. After the disinfection, the robot signals via the tablet that the disinfection is finished. The robot is now ready to disinfect a new room.
The robots sensors will detect if someone enters a room under a disinfection, and immediately stop the disinfection.
The safety system will be triggered if the operator drives the robot manually too close to a wall, person, or other object above 15 cm. If this occurs, the robot’s front and rear sensors will trigger the robot to stop before hitting the object.
The UVD Robot® is powered by Li-MNC batteries that gives you the power to disinfect larger areas such as airports, supermarkets, conference rooms and several patient rooms.
It comes with a docking station, which the UVD Robot finds by it self, when it needs recharging. To make sure that it is fully charged and ready for its next disinfection, time saving as it requires no involvement from the operator.
