autonomous robots used to disinfect hospital rooms with concentrated UV light

robots are helping to fight fight the novel coronavirus by disinfecting hospital rooms with concentrated UV light. developed by danish company UVD robots, the autonomous machines are used as part of regular cleaning cycles and are extremely helpful at preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases, viral infections, bacteria and other types of harmful organic microorganisms in the environment by breaking down their DNA-structure.

the UVD robots have eight light bulbs that emit UV-C ultraviolet light able to destroy bacteria, virus, and other harmful microbes. once inside a room, the robot will take around 20 minutes to completely disinfect it by damaging the DNA and RNA of microbes, stopping them from multiplying. as the light is harmful to humans too, people are required to stay outside while the robot does its job. 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 through an app.
