The robotic machine can sweep the floor and neutralize viruses with ozonized water, a natural disinfectant that is also highly effective against coronaviruses and bacteria.

The robot, equipped with ultrasonic sensors, cameras and GPS antennas, moves independently through the underground area of Frankfurt Central Station and is able to remove large debris, such as beverage cans. He can recognize obstacles in his path and go around them, or stop for a while while its path is blocked.

In Ukraine, INFOCOM LTD has developed Robot TIMA – an autonomous robot for ensuring the safety of premises, which will cope with the routine disinfection task according to the specified schedule and without interruptions.
