LG Electronics Announces Autonomous Disinfection Robot for Business Applications




LG announced that they are developing an autonomous robot by combining its core competencies in robotics, artificial intelligence, and autonomous vehicles, which will use ultraviolet (UV-C) light to disinfect high-touch, high-traffic areas.

“We hope LG’s first UV disseminating robot will give our customers, and in turn their customers, peace of mind,” explained Michael Kosla, vice president, LG Business Solutions USA. “Whether its hotel guests, students in classrooms, or patrons of restaurants and other businesses, they can rest assured that the LG autonomous UV robot will help reduce their exposure to harmful bacteria and germs,” he said.

The autonomous robot is designed to move around tables, chairs, and other furniture. LG is creating a product that is said to set new standards in hygiene. It will be irradiating a room’s touchable surfaces in 15 to 30 minutes, disinfecting multiple areas on a single battery charge.

The product will be user-friendly and will not require extensive staff training or specialist to operate it. The staff can monitor the progress via remote updates to smartphones or tablets. The features include a built-in safety lock which will be activated by a human motion detection sensor, to minimize exposure to UV rays. 

“A higher level of disinfection is going to become the new customer expectation in the new contactless economy where we now all live, work, learn and play,” Kosla said. “LG is bringing to bear its expertise in robotics, artificial intelligence, and autonomous vehicles for creative solutions like this to meet specific customer requirements.”
