A COVID-19 cleaning robot funded by the European Commission will be provided to Cork University Hospital (CUH) as part of an EU-wide plan to contain the spread of Covid-19 in hospitals across Europe.
The European Commission is set to fund the provision of a Covid-19 cleaning robot to 31 hospitals across the EU, including CUH, under the Emergency Support Instrument (ESI) which makes available a total of €12 million to ‘provide useful and necessary equipment to Member States in aid of tackling the pandemic.
There are more than 10,000 robot companies in China.
Reportedly, less than 5% of them are doing well.
But what if they didn’t all have to reinvent the wheel? Or the servomotor. Or computer vision, spatial recognition, natural language processing, gripping, navigating, or any of a host of different problems that robots need to understand in order to be useful. What if they only had to learn the specific pieces of functionality that are unique to their specific set of tasks?
As the first hospital in Denmark Rigshospitalet has received a fully autonomous UVD Robots disinfection robot from the Funen-based Blue Ocean Robotics as a donation from the EU Commission. The technology is provided as part of the mitigation of hospital acquired infections, COVID-19, and other infectious microorganisms at hospitals.
The UVD robot from Odense, Denmark, makes itself noticed as a great design achievement. The Danish UV disinfection robot from the service robot manufacturer, Blue Ocean Robotics, won over the 98-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world.
