Introducing the World's first UV-C LED Disinfection Robot

News

Otsaw Digital will run the first trial of its O-RX robot at the Wisma Atria in Singapore

Singapore-based robotics manufacturer Otsaw Digital has launched the world's first UV-C LED Disinfection Autonomous Robot. Otsaw has filed the relevant patents for this new innovation which it calls O-RX .

From conceptualisation, design, materials procurement, prototype testing to certification, the development of the O-RX was successfully completed in eight weeks. The O-RX has undergone the relevant safety and testing under various conditions and has been certified by internationally-accredited TUV SUD.

Eliminating the use of mercury lamps that emits harmful UV-A and UV-B radiations, the O-RX uses UV-C LED technology that emits only UV-C light, which is extremely effective when it comes to killing microbes, including harmful bacteria and coronaviruses such as COVID-19. Hence, the UV-C LED technology is much safer and non-cancerous to human skin.

Integrated with the UV-C LED technology, the O-RX is said to have a disinfection rate of more than 99.999 percent with a range of 2.5 metres and the UV-C LED technology is also more energy efficient than conventional mercury lamps by 70 percent.

Capable to be deployed for five hours on one full charge, the O-RX is also equipped with a 360-degree camera and LIDAR sensors with self-driving, collision avoidance and artificial intelligence technologies. The O-RX can be controlled and managed remotely via a fleet management control platform that is developed by Otsaw.

To help remove heat generated by the LED, the robot uses a thermal management solution developed by researchers at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research's (A*STAR) Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech).

Otsaw will be collaborating with YTL Starhill Global REIT Management, the manager of Starhill Global REIT, and will be running a trial of the O-RX at Wisma Atria commencing from 15 July 2020.

Otsaw's founder and CEO, Ling Ting Ming, commented: "Disinfection is a key part of protecting the health and safety of communities and more than ever, we need to accelerate the rate of automating disinfection as COVID-19 outbreak increased the demand and frequencies of disinfection but at the same time, manpower resources have been curtailed.

"O-RX combines innovative LED technology and robotics to allow the disinfecting process to be fully autonomous, mobile and much safer, thereby achieving a higher disinfection efficiency as compared to conventional methods and reduce the dependence of human resources."

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
