UV Robot

Project Category: Robotics

Community: Robomazing


Design a robot that uses UV rays to disinfect work and public environments.

The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our life in many aspects; at work, schools, restaurants, social events, etc.. Viruses and bacteria can stay active on surfaces for days. UV-C rays provide a contact-less and remote controlled sanitizing solution. The robot will be able to safely navigate indoors, inside rooms, halls, and corridors. It will provide an off-shelf, open source, and cost-effective solution.


This project is coordinated by Robomazing. It will be submitted to the Micron UV Robot contest.

more on Governance page
PROJECTS are seen as COLLABORATIVE VENTURES, which are TRANSPARENT (anyone has access to the information that they produce) and OPEN (anyone can participate). They only produce PRODUCTS and services based on OPEN SOURCE knowledge or technology. PROJECTS have a CUSTODIAN that represents them legally and acts as a trust for their tangible assets. PROJECTS can have multiple EXCHANGE FIRMS, which are commercial entities that move products and services developed by PROJECTS on the MARKET. EXCHANGE FIRMS oblige themselves by contract with the CUSTODIAN to share PROFIT with all contributors to PROJECTS, from which they commercialize PRODUCTS.
