UVD Robot from NESA Robotics

Known as the Covid-19 Killing Robot, the UVD Robot from NESA Robotics uses UVC light to disinfect large spaces as part of a regular cleaning schedule. UVC light lamps are mounted on the robot’s fully autonomous base, and kill 99.9999% of infectious diseases, viruses, bacteria, yeasts, fungi and other harmful microorganisms in a matter of seconds.

Used to disinfect large areas, the UVD Robot is controlled by a trained member of cleaning staff and disinfects spaces after staff have cleaned them, leaving it safe to use and virus-free immediately. 

Users benefit from quick and cost-effective disinfection as the robot is able to disinfect up to 18,000 square meters in its 2.5 hour battery life, the equivalent of 15 medium-sized rooms. 

The robot is controlled by two apps, the MiR and UVD. The MiR app creates maps of new spaces which allow the robot to function autonomously, allowing personnel to continue working elsewhere, and the UVD app operates the robot and runs disinfections. The MiR app is set-up by a trained UVD technician, where a map of the disinfection areas is stored and available for use in the user-friendly UVD app, for quick and easy deployment of the UVD Robot.

    “With EU funds, the European Commission is buying 200 disinfection robots, which will be delivered to hospitals across Europe to help disinfect patient rooms. We do all we can to support hospitals and patients in these difficult times. And more will follow.” Ursula Von Der Leyen, President of the European Commission

    Once both apps are set-up, the robot will be sent to a desired room after it has been cleaned, and when everyone has left the area and all doors and windows are shut, the robot will disinfect the room in around 10 minutes, depending on room size.

    The robot will then move onto the next room, quickly disinfecting all desired spaces with minimal human-intervention, saving time for cleaners. After finishing a mission, the robot will even drive autonomously and plug itself into its docking station to recharge.

    UVD Robots from NESA Robotics are well-trusted in the healthcare sector, where they are being used to kill hospital acquired infections in operating theatres, wards and patient rooms, and are now being deployed in the fight against Covid-19 in airports, railway stations, hotels, offices and showrooms. Saving both time and money for businesses, the Covid-19 killing UV-C Disinfection Robot ensures staff, customers, patients, and the public are protected against all harmful viruses and bacteria, making staff feel more confident and putting customers and clients at ease.
