At Digital CES 2021, LG Electronics will be showing off the newest member of the CLOi robot family that's being developed to support schools, offices, restaurants and retailers alike. The autonomous robot is designed to use UV-C light to disinfect high-touch, high-traffic areas. Thanks to its slim design, the robot will be capable of easily navigating spaces with chairs and tables and it will be useful for "generally irradiating a room’s touchable surfaces in 15 to 30 minutes." The robot is being developed to disinfect multiple areas on a single charge and help to alleviate some of the pressure on staff and specialists.
According to LG, the robot is set to be available to the hospitality, retail, corporate and education sectors in the US as of early 2021.
