Shanghai based Keenon Robotics, makers of the Peanut service robot, have released a new UVC light and disinfection spray autonomous mobile robot. The robot is designed to autonomously move around a hospital or other facility and perform various disinfection processes.
The AMR is called the UVC Disinfection Robot and leverages Keenon's mature AMR software and base hardware for this new solution. The company is reporting that the machine has already been deployed in 10+ hospitals in Shanghai.
The Keenon UVD Robot has dual disinfection capabilities including both UVC light cycle and an aerasol spraying unit. It's built on top of the Keenon autonomous mobile robot base which is a mature AMR solution.
The vehicle is also capable of elevator integration, enabling it to autonomously call an elevator to move between floors.
It features a 8 hour runtime on a single charge and the UV light disinfection cycle take 15 minutes to disinfect a patients room.
