This collaborative project came into being within one month, as part of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, thanks to the combined expertise ofInnowtech (Alain Godot), Fadilec (Didier Farigoule), Sirea (Bruno Bouteille), Alfileo (Philippe Junca) and Sterixene incubated in Cleantech Vallée of the Gard Rhodanien region.
The objective: destroy all traces of viruses, including Covid-19, as well as all bacteria and mould in the ambient air and on the surfaces in all premises, offices or spaces open to the public.
It is intended for businesses, industries in all sectors, hospitals, retirement homes, local authorities (town hall, preschool facilities etc.) where the requirements for disinfection, risk prevention and health need to be met, to optimise the economic and environmental impact at reduced cost.
This agile robot disinfects the surfaces of premises and offices (doors, bottom of walls, furniture), as well as the ambient air by combining the use of pulsed light from ultra-violet rays (mercury-free) and a sodium hypochlorite solution manufactured on site, which guarantees total independence. It has many advantages: compact, long-lasting power (4 to 8 hours), lightweight (less than 50 kg), fast (30 m² treated in less than half an hour), smart (tracks itself and records the data), 4 wheels, wireless, can be operated remotely from a computer or tablet.
Marketing is set to be launched during the summer with a taller version to reach switches.
