This week, LG Electronics announced it is developing an autonomous robot that uses ultraviolet light to disinfect high-touch, high-traffic areas. According to LG Business Solutions USA, it will offer the robot to U.S. clients in the hospitality, education, corporate, retail, restaurant and transportation sectors early next year.

“We hope LG’s first UV disseminating robot will give our customers, and in turn, their customers, peace of mind,” LG Business Solutions Vice President Michael Kosla said. “Whether it’s hotel guests, students in classrooms, or patrons of restaurants and other businesses, they can rest assured that the LG autonomous UV robot will help reduce their exposure to harmful bacteria and germs.”

The robot is set to be unveiled at Digital CES 2021. With its autonomous design, the company says the robot will be able to move easily around tables, chairs and other furniture and generally irradiate a room’s touchable surfaces in 15 to 30 minutes.
