Researchers of Academic Center for Education, Culture and Research, department of health, safety and environment (HSE) in cooperation with Tarbiat Modares University could successfully design and make a robot that can disinfect surfaces using ultraviolet light.

According to an ISCA report, Dr. Davoud Pirani, head of HSE department, stated that as COVID-19 spreads across the world, the robot can disinfect various surfaces in different places providing a potentially effective method of removing the virus from public spaces.

As UV-C light kills around 99 per cent of bacteria and has been clinically proven to eliminate viruses, the robots will disinfect surfaces more effectively compared to manual cleaning and the spraying disinfectant solutions.

In this regard, a faculty member of Tarbiat Modares University, Dr. Sajoudi explained that this type of UV light can kill viruses without harming humans, also can be controlled via Android and iOS applications, so it disinfects desired location from the closest possible distance with the highest intensity.
