KUALA LUMPUR: Blue Ocean Robotics has been selected by Frost & Sullivan for its Best Practice ‘2020 European Professional Service Robots Product Leadership’ Award.

According to a statement, the recognition was earned primarily based on the company’s work with subsidiary UVD Robots, which combines autonomous robot technology with ultraviolet light to disinfect against viruses like Covid-19.

A subsidiary of Blue Ocean Robotics, Denmark-based UVD Robots’ innovative solution has been proven to eliminate pathogens within 10 to 15 minutes in a patient room.

“Blue Ocean Robotics’ flagship product, UVD Robots, especially enables hospitals to reduce disease transmission by killing 99.99 per cent of bacteria and microorganisms,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager, Rohit Karthikeyan.

“It is the first and only autonomous mobile robot that disinfects a variety of surfaces using UV-C light, giving it superior utility over competing solutions. Uniquely, the UVD robot can be easily controlled with a tablet.”

To date, the company’s self-driving, disinfecting robots have been rolled out to more than 50 countries worldwide.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards are presented to companies that encourage significant growth in their industries, have identified emerging trends before they became the standard in the marketplace, and have created advanced technologies to catalyse and transform industries. – Bernama
