Badger UV Disinfect Robot by Badger Technologies was created to improve the health and safety of retail and grocery stores, as it uses advanced UV-C technology to tackle pathogens. The autonomous robot is useful for decontaminating 40,000 square feet in about two hours and combating high-risk pathogens. According to the company, "Early testing of the new Badger Technologies autonomous robot with UVDI’s 254nm UV-C technology indicates 99% and greater inactivation of coronaviruses, E.coli, Salmonella enterica and Influenza A."
The self-navigating robot offers a simple way to bring more peace of mind to essential spaces with a high amount of activity and surfaces that have the potential to be contaminated. As well as being a solution that's relevant to the current times, the robot has the potential to support a variety of public settings going forward.
