Disinfecting a place or object has become a serious concern nowadays. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, it has been recommended that surfaces should be disinfected on a regular basis with minimal or no human interaction. This has given rise to the popularity of UV-C disinfection robots around the globe. UV-C disinfection robots are used to disinfect a space from pathogenic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, yeast, and fungi. These devices are useful to prevent the spread of pathogenic-borne diseases in humans as well as the environment. UV-C disinfection robots offer numerous benefits over traditional disinfection processes, including being user as well as environment friendly, shorter effective time, no residual effect on humans or animals, and more.
