Robots with UVC rays that can sterilize the environment!

Researchers WITH found a new way to keep public spaces clean, and to avoid infection by COVID-19 and other diseases. MIT Lab "Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence"(CSAIL), in collaboration with"Ava Robotics», Develop robots that can circulate in space autonomously and sterilize them.

The two manufacturers added to base AVA Robotics mobile robot, a personalized UVC light, designed by the MIT laboratory.

They tried the original in the NGO "Greater Boston Food Bank», Where the robot could move inside the GBFB warehouses at a speed of about 0,22 miles per hour. With this speed being constant it could cover 372 square metersthat is, the entire warehouse, in just half an hour. During this time he could to neutralize about 90% of the particles of coronavirus from the surfaces.

«As we drive the robot into GBFB, we are also researching new control policies that will allow it to adapt to environmental change, and ensure that all areas receive the appropriate dosage., "She said Alyssa Pierson, scientist and CSAIL researcher.

Researchers believe that such a method can be used for autonomy decontamination and other places, such as restaurants, factories, supermarkets and schools. The system in which it operates can map the environment in which it is located, and move between points and other designated areas.

«We have placed special emphasis on the remote control to minimize the presence of human supervision and the risk of COVID-19 spread.»

UVC light is often used for sterilization of patients' rooms and other medical facilities. The MTA is testing it as a way to disinfect subways and buses. We have also seen it clean humidifiers and airplane toilets.

«We are very excited to see the disinfection robot helping society in this difficult time. The information we received from experiment in the NGO have various algorithmic challenges. We plan to address them and expand autonomous sterilization in more complex areas such as schools, airplanes and shops., "Said the director of CSAIL, Daniela Rus.
