UBTECH Unveils New Autonomous UV-C Robot at CES 2022

UBTECH Adibot A 400x275

January 4, 2022

UBTECH Robotics has announced the market availability for the newest addition to its portfolio of robots at CES 2022. The ADIBOT-A autonomous UV-C Disinfection Robot combines disinfection technologies with the latest hardware and artificial intelligence software to provide solutions for creating cleaner and safer spaces, the company said.

ADIBOT-A is the evolution of the company’s launch into the UV-C disinfection robot space – in 2021 the company launched a stationary version of the robot. ADIBOT-A can be programmed and mapped with UBTECH’s proprietary U-SLAM software to independently navigate one or multiple floor plans to disinfect against harmful pathogens, bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19. UBTECH sadi its software uses AI algorithms to also generate optimal disinfection paths and navigate obstacles from the very first disinfection session, creating automatic autonomous routes with key disinfection points. The robot provides 360-degree radiant light coverage and other intelligent safety features, including the use of AI-enabled risk mitigation cameras, two lidar systems, multiple PIR sensors and sensor-enabled safety signage.

“The unprecedented success we’ve experienced with our ADIBOT systems over the last year shows the need for innovative and affordable solutions to protect against harmful viruses,” said John Rhee, senior vice president and general manager of UBTECH, North America. “In 2022 and beyond, UBTECH looks forward to building on this success and expanding our solutions for schools, businesses and our overwrought healthcare system.”

The company said its ADIBOT systems are currently deployed in more than 500 buildings, school districts, office parks, and convention centers across the country. It added that UBTECH’s foundations in robotics and AI allow it to make possible the solution at an affordable price for organizations that did not previously have access to hospital-grade disinfection.

UBTECH added that the robot is available for purchase and deployment now, and is not subject to “the same challenges other businesses currently face with supply chain or component issues.” Pricing can start as low as $15 per day, depending on a customer’s needs. Tiered pricing for multiple robot purchases are available, as well as financing and leasing options.

More details on the new systems are available at the UBTECH Robotics website.
