Covid-19 has developed a germ-conscious mentality in us, where “Cleanliness” is the new king. Also, we have masks and hand sanitizer, which likely won’t go even after vaccines are distributed. For robotics enthusiasts, the year 2021 is a great opportunity in terms of encouraging employee and customer confidence at the workplace through new well-being and safety devices.

- UV lights robots: UV lights work perfectly against bacteria and it is highly popular among developers. Autonomous mobile robots can be adapted for UV disinfecting technologies that are essential to target surfaces to work effectively.
The existing ambulatory robotics tech can be transformed into new disinfecting products without ground-up redesigns. Now big robotics-tech giants start introducing their products into the market.
In late 2020, LG has launched a disinfecting robot. Ava Robotics also introduces its fully autonomously disinfection robot that can disinfect 9,000 square feet per hour. Recently Ava associated with MIT CSAIL to launch a Disinfection robot to help to secure Boston-area food bank. Furthermore, this robot has been piloted at various places such as Boston-based Steelcase and Boston City Hall. This robot becomes due to its variety of professional settings.
All the robotics developers have analyzed the market demand, start expanding their technology, and launches some exciting products into the market.
