Since the outbreak of Covid-19, everyone is on their toes to maintain their home and public places clean. The use of cleaning robots has gained utmost importance in such trying times.

The cleaning robots is an autonomous robot that cleans windows, floor, and others. It is equipped with mopping and UV sterilization. The technological advancements in robotics and the adoption of smart robots in households have boosted the growth of the global cleaning robot market. Moreover, the major market players have launched their novel products to meet the demand, which is remarkably increased after the Covid-19 outbreak.

Advent of novel cleaning robots:

St Pancras International has launched a new cleaning robot to tackle the Covid-19 spread. According to studies, it is proved that UV radiation could damage the genetic material of coronavirus and could hamper its ability to replicate. Thus, the use of cleaning robots during this pandemic has become vital as the use of UV-C light rays to offer fully autonomous, chemical-free disinfection to public areas. The UVD robot’s unique technology can kill 99.9999% of bacteria and viruses including Coronavirus on surfaces and in the air in a matter of minutes.

Trifo, recently launched a smart vacuum cleaner that can listen, see, and speak while cleaning your room. The cleaning robot has an in-built outstanding mapping capability and navigation system. Moreover, it can communicate through Trifo Home App. The series comes with ten mopping pads and water tanks, which enables users to mop the floors while sweeping.

Similarly, Xiaomi-based smart cleaning robots manufacturing company, Roborock, has announced that it has successfully completed R&D for commercial cleaning robots. The company has been working on developing cleaning robots for commercial places such as shopping malls, office buildings, supermarkets, and other large indoor spaces. The rising labor costs have been the major driver for the development of cleaning robots.

Future of cleaning robots:

Given the rapid launch of novel cleaning robots, the market has witnessed the trend of incorporating advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and robotics technology. Sooner or later, we are bound to see cleaning robots that could have arms.

As sanitization and cleaning have become a top priority as commercial places and organizations hope to reopen their business and they must make workers feel comfortable going back to work into the office. The adoption of emerging technologies such as IoT and AI can help improve the cleaning processes and make cleaning procedures more efficient. Furthermore, the use of technology could sanitize and clean workplaces and reduce the spread of viruses and allergens.

Incorporating AI into cleaning robots could help them perform well in repetitive tasks and IoT-based cleaning robots could be used to sweep floors, clean surfaces, and disinfect common areas while offering real-time data about the analytics and performance. However, the most important advantage would be absolutely no contact of humans to viruses, bacteria, and allergen, which has surely become the primary concern over the last couple of months.
