Cost-Effective Disinfection Robot Using UVC Radiation
Department of Electronics and Telecommunication, Ramrao Adik Institute of Technology, Navi Mumbai, India
Sanitization with human efforts is not an easy task. Chances of contracting infections increases which leads to additional spread of bacteria. Currently, normal cleaning robots are used in most of the places but looking at the current situation the sanitization techniques need to be improved. The robot uses radiation of UV rays to kill the microrganisms. It gives a live video streaming of its surrounding using a Wi-fi based camera. With the help of Bluetooth module and android mobile, we can control the movement of the robot inside the room without being physically present. It is built with PIC Microcontroller and Ultraviolet-C (UVC) Sanitization LED. UV-C has bandwidth range of 200-280nm and is most powerful when it comes to killing pathogens in the room. This allows us to sterilise the room effectively. By killing the germs, the UV light restricts their multiplication by destroying their reproductive system. Thus use of this robot lowers the threat of infection, cost of traditional cleaning and sterilisation and increases security in medical facilities. Thus, we are trying to implement a more efficient way of sanitization by building a Low cost UV sanitization Robot which can be used in small clinics and for household purpose.
