OTSAW Digital Pte Ltd (Otsaw) announced the launch of UV-C-LED Disinfection Autonomous Robot, named “O-RX”. Commencing the conceptualisation, design, materials procurement, prototype testing to certification, O-RX was developed in 8 weeks. After undergone various safety and testing under various condition O-RX has been certified by internationally-accredited TUV SUD.
O-RX utilizes UV-C LED technology that emits only UV-C light which is highly effective to kill microbes, including harmful bacteria and coronaviruses such as COVID-19. UV-C LED technology is much safer and non-cancerous to human skin. O-RX has a disinfection rate of more than 99.999% with a range of 2.5 meters with the integration of UV-C LED technology.
UV-C LED technologies are 70% more energy-efficient than conventional mercury lamps. O-RX is capable to be deployed for 5 hours on one full charge, it is also equipped with a 360-degree camera and lidar sensors with self-driving, collision avoidance and artificial intelligence technologies. It can be controlled and managed remotely via a fleet management control platform that is developed by Otsaw.
The robot uses a thermal management solution developed by researchers at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research’s (A*STAR) Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) to eradicate the heat generated by the LED.
On 15th July’20, a trial of the O-RX will be carried out at Wisma Atria and Otsaw will be collaborating with YTL Starhill Global REIT Management Limited, the manager of Starhill Global REIT for the same.
Otsaw’s founder and CEO, Mr Ling Ting Ming, commented, “Disinfection is a key part of protecting the health and safety of communities and more than ever, we need to accelerate the rate of automating disinfection as COVID-19 outbreak increased the demand and frequencies of disinfection but at the same time, manpower resources have been curtailed.
“O-RX combines innovative LED technology and robotics to allow the disinfecting process to be fully autonomous, mobile and much safer, thereby achieving a higher disinfection efficiency as compared to conventional methods and reduce the dependence of human resources.”
