Omron joins forces with partners to provide a new disinfection solution with UV-equipped mobile robots.

More and more hospitals, institutions and companies are turning to automation to disinfect rooms and public spaces. The need for additional hygiene procedures following the current COVID-19 pandemic has ignited new fields of application for innovative robotics for disinfecting various spaces. In this context, analysts from ABI Research forecast that the mobile robotics market will reach a volume of 23 billion US dollars by 2021. Automation expert Omron and its partners across the world have joined forces to automate disinfection processes.

The strict hygiene and safety regulations associated with the pandemic present hospitals and public institutions with the challenge of finding new approaches and technologies. Mobile robots mounted with ultraviolet (UV) light attachments are ideal for disinfecting hospital rooms, shopping centres and other public spaces. The automation of disinfection with ultraviolet light improves health and safety, thus contributing to the fight against COVID-19. Mobile robots are ideal to be used with the UV lamps, which are not safe for humans to operate.
