We at SRQ robotics is a startup initiated at University of Moratuwa. Our team consists of 5 professional engineers and 2 undergraduates. In order to help the government to control the prevailing Covid 19 situation we have implemented a Robot to disinfect public places utilizing Ultraviolet rays. The current method used in SL (Disinfectant Liquids) consumes a considerable time for the process. This time can be reduced by 60% with our robot at a 85% cost reduction in a 100 day run.
With the equipped ultraviolet light tower, the robot can disinfect and kill diseases, viruses, bacteria, and other types of harmful organic microorganisms in the environment by breaking down their DNA-structure. We have conducted laboratory testings and proved a 99.997% disinfection rate. The invention
increases the safety of both staff, patients and their relatives by reducing the risk of contact with bacteria, viruses and other harmful microorganisms. This can effectively prevent and reduce the spread of infectious diseases, viruses and bacteria. The system pays special attention to “infection hotspots”, such as washbasin, patient bed, handles etc.
