Artificial intelligence technology company Ubtech Robotics launched the Adibot UV-C Disinfecting Robot at the CES 2021. The Adibot robotic disinfection system is meant to provide a hospital-grade solution against COVID-19, combining the robotics and AI from Ubtech with UV-C technology that disinfects targeted surfaces and air by deactivating the DNA and RNA of harmful pathogens. Available in stationary and autonomous models, Adibots feature 360-degree UV-C light coverage with powerful disinfection capabilities to effectively disinfect 99.9 percent of targeted areas.

Because Ubtech had the robotic and AI foundations already in place, the company is aiming to make this one of the more cost-effective, high-powered UV-C solutions on the market. 
 
“Ubtech’s mission is, and continues to be, to make everyday life easier for people now and into the future. As a result, we’re addressing today’s challenges with tomorrow’s technology,” said John Rhee, SVP and general manager, Ubtech North America. “This year’s CES offerings not only look to the future of robotics with our AMR and JIMU GO offerings, but also focus on immediate and critical needs. Our Adibot UV-C Robots stand to accelerate the safe reopening of schools and businesses shut down by COVID-19, while helping better prepare for potential future outbreaks—from pandemic level down to more localized, harmful viruses.”
