CVG Airport was featured in The Wall Street Journal as the first US airport to deploy Avidbots Neo floor-scrubbing robots, autonomously disinfecting terminals during the pandemic
All over the world, hundreds of engineers, scientists and software developers are at work building a robotic army with a bold mission: to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
There are robots bedecked with lamps that bathe surfaces in invisible radiation, robots with enough autonomy to safely coexist with humans while sanitizing floors 24/7, robots that can scan for fevers and enforce mask-wearing, even robots that spew antimicrobial gas in outdoor spaces. (That approach, scientists say, is probably futile.)
