Otsaw Launches World's First UV-C LED Disinfection Autonomous Robot


Reading time ( words)

Robotics manufacturer Otsaw Digital Pte. Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has launched the world's first UV-C LED Disinfection Autonomous Robot, named "O-RX". Underscoring Otsaw's strengths in the design and development of autonomous robotics and the integration of innovative UV-C LED technology, Otsaw has filed the relevant patents for this new innovation

From conceptualisation, design, materials procurement, prototype testing to certification, the development of the O-RX was successfully completed in a short 8 weeks. As a testament to its high safety standards and product quality, the O-RX has undergone the relevant safety and testing under various conditions and it has been certified by internationally-accredited TUV SUD.

Eliminating the use of mercury lamps that emits harmful UV-A and UV-B radiations, the O-RX utilises the UV-C LED technology that emits only UV-C light, which is extremely effective when it comes to killing microbes, including harmful bacteria and coronaviruses such as COVID-19. Hence, the UV-C LED technology is much safer and non-cancerous to human skin.

Integrated with the innovative UV-C LED technology, the O-RX has a disinfection rate of more than 99.999% with a range of 2.5 meters and the UV-C LED technology is also more energy efficient than conventional mercury lamps by 70%.

Capable to be deployed for 5 hours on one full charge, the O-RX is also equipped with a 360-degree camera and lidar sensors with self-driving, collision avoidance and artificial intelligence technologies. The O-RX can be controlled and managed remotely via a fleet management control platform that is developed by Otsaw.

To help remove heat generated by the LED, the robot uses a thermal management solution developed by researchers at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research's (A*STAR) Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech).

Otsaw will be collaborating with YTL Starhill Global REIT Management Limited, the manager of Starhill Global REIT, and will be running a trial of the O-RX at Wisma Atria commencing from 15 July 2020.

For Climbing Robots, the Sky's the Limit

07/15/2019 | NASA
Robots can drive on the plains and craters of Mars, but what if we could explore cliffs, polar caps and other hard-to-reach places on the Red Planet and beyond? Designed by engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, a four-limbed robot named LEMUR (Limbed Excursion Mechanical Utility Robot) can scale rock walls, gripping with hundreds of tiny fishhooks in each of its 16 fingers and using artificial intelligence (AI) to find its way around obstacles.
