Video: Disinfection Robot

This autonomous disinfection robot utilises a combination of automatic robot programming, autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance, sensor-based robot control, and novel drives and structure to achieve effective disinfection within a short period.

Its robot arm brings the UVC light close to the object’s surface while maintaining a proper distance to achieve 99.5% disinfection in just a few seconds, which allows fast disinfection of a large area.

The user-friendly graphical user interface enables a user to select disinfection area based on video images and automatically generate robot trajectories to perform the disinfection operation. The invention was developed by Professor Ning Xi from the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, Faculty of Engineering of HKU.
