Singapore based company Sesto is launching a mobile disinfectant robot that it claims can provide “round-the-clock environment disinfection and surface hygiene”. Called the Sesto HealthGUARD, the autonomous robot uses both a multi-nozzle sprayer and high-output germicidal UVC lamps to sanitize surfaces.
During operational hours with human traffic, the Sesto HealthGUARD can disinfect the environment with hospital-grade disinfectant from its multi-nozzle sprayer. After hours, the robot utilizes its six built-in UV-C high-output germicidal lamps to effectively disinfect an area of over 1000 square feet in approximately 45 minutes.
According to the company, the Sesto HealthGuard can efficiently and effectively disinfect facilities 24-hour, round-the-clock, with its dual functionality, eliminating “99.99 percent of bacteria, germs, and viruses”
Sesto HealthGUARD Made Locally in Singapore
Onboard sensors allow the robot to self-navigate, avoiding any people or objects that might get in the way. The robot also has the ability to clean and maneuver around tight places.
HealthGUARD can work for six straight hours before the battery needs to be swapped out. Operators can easily set up or alter cleaning missions and schedules by using software on a laptop or tablet.
The robot, manufactured locally in Singapore, is currently in production and ready for market. Sesto is targeting places like hospitals, malls, hotels, and manufacturing facilities. According to the company, a 100,000 square foot facility can be sanitized within 24-hours using three or four Sesto HealthGuard robots.
