Designers: „Desdorp“: Deividas Juozulynas, Denis Orlenok, Danil Ščepanov

Client: „GeoBaltic“

"Desibot" - a modern autonomous indoor robot with intelligent ultraviolet light disinfection function to prevent virus and bacteria spread. Recent clinical research shows that a robot emitting concentrated UV-C light destroys up to 99.99% of bacteria, viruses, molds, fungi, and other microorganisms, including known pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2. The product system is designed to provide a sterile environment in hospitals and clinics. The usage of automated robotic solutions increases the safety of personnel as they do not need to handle, transport, or store toxic, hazardous, or corrosive chemicals. The idea for the design of an automated disinfection robot was dictated by the COVID-19 virus. Since the beginning of the global pandemic, there was a clear need to disinfect various public spaces from the spread of the SARS‑CoV‑2 without using chemicals. In order to achieve a competitive advantage, the manufacturing process of the robot is done with 3D printing technology. This solution allows products to be manufactured locally in small amounts (or units) according to the need. FDM or SLS printing technology allows "Desibot" to be personalized if needed according to the client's branding or the environment where it is going to be used. The design of the object is characterized by an elegant body, which is specially designed to match the internal components. The appearance of the case reveals and highlights the main details of the robot. "Desibot" uses LIDAR space scanning and mapping technology for navigation and autonomous movement. Robot's artificial intelligent cameras detect if a person enters the disinfection space and immediately turns off the lights due to the enhanced sense of security. It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to disinfect one operating room without any need to maintain the exposure or ventilate the premises. The battery inside the robot allows it to run all night and then it automatically returns to the charging station.
