16 Jun 2020
Blue Ocean Robotics has been recognised as one of the top 50 most influential robotics companies in the world (RBR50) for its UVD Robots in Robotics Business Review.
According to a statement, the recognition was earned for work with UVD Robot, the health benefits of its technology and the continued growing demand for disinfecting capabilities.
UVD Robots combines deep microbiological know-how, autonomous robot technology and ultraviolet light to create the world’s best UV-C based disinfection solution, proven to eliminate pathogens within 10 to 15 minutes in a room.
The Robot Report and Robotics Business Review senior editor, Eugene Demaitre said: “The solution was introduced to the market even before the COVID-19 pandemic and since then, UVD Robots has been able to scale its production to the growing global demand for automated disinfection.
“We expect that the Danish RBR50 company will, in the future, help both hospitals and other localities prevent infections as well.”
Founded via a collaboration with Odense University Hospital, Blue Ocean Robotics created UVD Robots as a subsidiary in 2014 to solve the problem of Hospital Acquired Infections. One in 15 people get infected in hospitals.
The robots have been rolled out to over 60 countries.
