UV-C Robotics Deploy in Schools & Hospitals

 

Many companies continue to innovate at breakneck speed as result of the conditions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic. However, for many people, it’s easy to forget that not everyone has access to this kind of technology. UBTECH hopes to change that.

John Rhee, the company’s SVP and general manager, meets with Voice of B2B Daniel Litwin to shed some light on the new robotics technology his company is launching this year.

UBTECH is a global AI and humanoid robotics company that has just released two new “Adibot” UV-C disinfecting robots at a feasible price — a factor that is especially important in getting this technology into underserved communities.

Although UV-C technology is widely utilized in healthcare settings, its prohibitive cost makes it difficult for organizations with less funding to implement them at scale. These devices “generally cost an excess of several thousands of dollars per unit,” revealed Rhee. “It makes it very difficult for locations that desperately need products like these to afford it… So, our pilot programs are actually focusing on schools within Delaware that are in those areas.”

However, this cutting-edge technology is not without its disadvantages.

“What makes UV-C so effective as a disinfectant is that it deactivates the DNA and RNA of pathogens,” said Rhee. “That strength also makes it not ideal for people to be in those spaces when the machines are on.” UBTECH had to consider school data privacy issues when designing their products as well.

As a result, the company’s Adibots also offer risk mitigation and data privacy features “at a price point that is scalable and sustainable for schools in underserved areas.” Rhee continued, “None of our products allow for the type of data collection and gathering that you may see in other sectors. We’ve been very deliberate in designing both of these robots to be essentially in a closed ecosystem… so that things like the risk mitigation camera are not accessible remotely.”
