ODENSE, DENMARK – JUNE, 2016
The UV-Disinfection Robot got its first public recognition in the form of a top 3 ranking in this year STARTUP WORLD Award in Munich. It was fierce competition for first place with the FoldiMate from FoldiMate Inc., a laundry folding robot, and the Olive Intelligent Suitcase from IKAP Robotics automatically follows its owner.
STARTUP WORLD Award honors the most innovative companies from the entire spectrum of industrial automation and robotics. The competition drew the most innovation-creating robot technology companies from around the world to Munich. An expert jury chaired by Falk Strascheg, founder of Strascheg Center of Entrepreneurship GmbH, has assessed applications and carefully selected the 20 most innovative robotics solutions in the categories Automation and Service Robotics. Out of the 20, three in each category are selected for the finals to be held at the Automatica fair.
“It is a great honor to be among the finalists and achieve third place, especially when you look at the number of innovative ideas in the competition. There are not many ideas dealing with automation of cleaning and disinfection, so we are with our solution for disinfection in hospitals and in industry, among the few who find a practical solution to a worldwide social problem, namely Human Acquired Infections (HAIs) health and production sectors. We have spoken to a lot of professionals who would like to know more about the robot and are already planning to set up trails”, says a proud Casper M. Craggs, Vice President of Business Development.
The UV-Disinfection Robot also caught the attention of Bavaria’s Deputy Minister-President, Ilse Aigner, who came by for a talk about the Bavaria’s challenges and development plans.
The UV-Disinfection Robot is a unique automated disinfection robot that disinfects surfaces via powerful UV-C lighting. The robot drives independently and kills up to 99.9% of infectious bacteria and viruses in just 10 minutes. The first UV-Disinfection Robots are expected to be available early 2017 but open for order worldwide as of today.
