Аннотация

The paper focuses on the development of the autonomous robot UltraBot to reduce COVID-19 transmission and other harmful bacteria and viruses. The motivation behind the research is to develop such a robot that is capable of performing disinfection tasks without the use of harmful sprays and chemicals that can leave residues, require airing the room afterward for a long time, and can cause the corrosion of the metal structures. UltraBot technology has the potential to offer the most optimal autonomous disinfection performance along with taking care of people, keeping them from getting under UV-C radiation. The paper highlights UltraBot's mechanical and electrical structures as well as low-level and high-level control systems. The conducted experiments demonstrate the effectiveness of the robot localization module and optimal trajectories for UV-C disinfection. The results of UV-C disinfection performance revealed a decrease of the total bacterial count (TBC) by 94% on the distance of 2.8 meters from the robot after 10 minutes of UV-C irradiation.
