UAE’s first COVID-fighting robot is here

Sanitizexperts, the Dubai-based professionals in the home, office and industrial air sanitization introduce the Automated UVC Robot, the latest intelligence in the UAE in the fight against COVID-19. Forget harmful chemicals, sprays, smells and residue; the Robot uses Ultraviolet to provide a 360degree disinfection of public space air.


Thanks to extensive testing in the long and hard battle against COVID-19, the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) has proven that UV disinfection technologies are a multiple barrier approach to reducing the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

The Ultraviolet and sterilization Robot uses intelligent pulse disinfection and nature navigation AI technology to automatically plan its path and judge the disinfection time required within the environment. Its radar vision and ultrasonic obstacle avoidance allow it to move freely around the space without colliding.

The Robot’s UV-C lamps, which can work up to 8000 hours, disinfect and kill bacteria effectively, yet safely. The Robot’s infrared system can recognize when a human is within reach and automatically shuts the lamp down.

Within just 150 minutes, the 800 square metres around the Robot will be sanitized, which is around ten times the efficiency of manual and fixed disinfection.

The Robot works through WiFi and can be managed with the click of a button either on a PC or through the App. The software will assist you in mapping the area you need to sanitize and even have multiple automated UVC robot working simultaneously. When the battery level energy is low, the Robot will automatically go back to its station and charge.

Omar Chappuis, CEO of Sanitizexperts, said: “The Automated UVC Robot is an exciting development against COVID-19, which we’re very excited to introduce to the UAE. Whether in a hospital, airport, mall, home or the office, the Robot will ensure that bacteria are eliminated, allowing for clean, safe living.”
