UVC 조명 장착 로봇, 코로나바이러스 30분 안에 창고 전체 방역


표면의 90% 중화시켜


   미국 MIT가 개발한 새로운 로봇이 자외선(UV) 빛을 이용해 360m2의 창고에서 코로나 바이러스를 죽이는 데 사용되고 있다.


이 자율 기계는 UVC라고 알려진 특정 유형의 단파장 UV를 사용하여 미생물을 죽이고, '초자외선 발열 조사'라고 알려진 과정에서 미생물을 파괴한다.




UVC는  4개의 수직 빔에서 방출되어 30분 만에 90%의 코로나바이러스 입자가 죽는다.


UVC 빛은 인간에게 해롭기 때문에, 로봇은 혼자 일을 해야 하고 인간 근로자들이 퇴근할 때 청소 교대 근무를 하도록 보내진다.


이 로봇은 미국의 비영리 단체인 Great Boston Food Bank(GBFB)에서와 같이 전체 산업 시설을 적용될 수 있다 

전세계적으로 50만 명 이상의 사망자를 낸 코비드-19 때문에 푸드 뱅크들은 위험에 직면해 있다.

A new robot developed by MIT in the US is being used to kill coronavirus in a 4,000-square-foot warehouse using ultraviolet light (UV) light.


The autonomous machine uses a specific type of short-wavelength UV, known as UVC, to kill microorganisms and disrupt their DNA in a process known as ‘ultraviolet germicidal irradiation’.


UVC is emitted from the bot’s four vertical beams as it nips around warehouse aisles, killing 90 per cent of coronavirus particles in 30 minutes. 


Because UVC light is harmful to humans, the robot has to do its work alone and is sent to do its sanitising shift when human workers have clocked off.


The robot can map an entire industrial facility – in this case the Great Boston Food Bank (GBFB), a US non-profit that provides hunger relief.


Food banks face a particular demand due to the stress of Covid-19, which has killed more than half a million people worldwide.

The UN predicted the number of people facing severe food insecurity could double to reach 265 million because of coronavirus.


This means it is vital that hunger relief packages distributed in the US are free from the pathogen. 


‘Food banks provide an essential service to our communities, so it is critical to help keep these operations running,’ said Alyssa Pierson, research scientist at MIT’s Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts, US.

‘Here, there was a unique opportunity to provide additional disinfecting power to their current workflow, and help reduce the risks of Covid-19 exposure.’




MIT said surfaces are generous hosts for SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes Covid-19, as well as other harmful pathogens.


Chemical cleaning products are effective, but using them to disinfect a wide area can take a lot of time and can put a human worker at risk of being infected.


They therefore turned to UVC, which is already being used to sanitise hospital equipment, and robotics technology so it can be operated without human workers. 


The autonomous bot scoots around the warehouse with four vertical bars that emit UV light, which are mounted on a base from Massachusetts firm Ava Robotics. 


During tests at the GBFB facility, the robot drove by pallets and storage aisles at a speed of around 0.22 miles per hour.
