Avidbots, which develops autonomous floor-scrubbing robots, has announced the launch of its Disinfection Add-On, expanding the functionality of its robot, Neo. With the add-on, customers can autonomously disinfect high-touch, 3D surfaces with Neo 2 in addition to floor care.

“The days of having single-purpose robots for specific tasks are behind us,” said Pablo Molina, CTO, vice president of product, chairman and co-founder of Avidbots. A robot must be multi-functional to meet the ever-evolving needs of customers. With the Disinfection Add-On, our customers can disinfect surfaces for a few hundred dollars per month – this is 10x savings when compared to having a separate robot or human completing the same task. As facilities across the globe reopen and welcome back their employees, customers and visitors, Neo provides disinfection at a low cost to help our customers keep up with the new normal, creating a safe and healthy environment.”

FarmersSpot400x275Farmers Insurance has announced plans to use a customized Boston Dynamics Spot mobile robot to assist with in-field catastrophe claims handling and non-catastrophe property inspections. The insurance company said it aims to improve the safety and efficiency of claims and inspections, while also becoming one of the first national insurers to deploy a robotic quadruped.

The company said Spot will join claims personnel beginning as early as fall 2021 to help assess damage from catastrophes such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and wildfires. The robot’s agility, advanced mobility, and perception to navigate various rough terrain will allow it to access spaces and environments inaccessible for claims employees, Farmers said. The robot will be equipped with several sensors and cameras, including a 360-degree camera and site documentation software to help reduce the time required to capture data and augment the in-field claims review process. In addition, the robot may be utilized to handle non-catastrophic events such as structure fires, collapsed structures, water loss, or other potentially hazardous environments in the future.

XAG Ecuador400x275

XAG has announced that its agricultural drones were recently introduced to a series of on-farm spraying trials for high-altitude specialty crops. Flying into the Andes mountains of Ecuador, the demonstrations on potato fields have presented the potential of fully autonomous drones to reduce labor costs and agricultural pesticide exposure, the company said.

With diverse climate and rural landscapes, more than half of Ecuador is located in the Andes at sea level over 3,000 meters, growing common crops such as corn, wheat, barley, and potatoes. The major farming steps from crop spraying to fertilizing can become difficult at this altitude, compared to that on the plains. Both small farms and large farms are investigating high-precision drones as alternatives to manual labor and ground machinery. While rural youth have been trained as XAG drone pilots, more abandoned farmlands are being restored to fertile soils that can cultivate exotic Ecuadorian fruits and vegetables.
