Corona will be with us for quite some time, according to the scientific community. Therefore, it still makes sense to think about ways and means to counter the threat and actually effectively push it back in the end. One undeniably logical way to get there, is to try to minimize or even eliminate transmission routes of the virus. This starts with the wearing of masks and continues with the decontamination of areas and rooms that could potentially be contaminated with the pathogen. From South Korea, the country that has repeatedly been praised for its exemplary handling of the pandemic, comes a young company to HANNOVER MESSE 2022 that has addressed precisely this issue.

Engineers from Hills Engineering in Seongnam-Si have developed the Coro-Bot, a universal, autonomous disinfection robot that uses AI to safely and sustainably disinfect its environment. To "educate" the Coro-Bot to be as autonomous as possible, the Korean tinkerers drew on everything that is currently state-of-the-art in technology: algorithms that autonomously detect and avoid obstacles, various remote systems such as Robot Management System (RMS), Smart Care System (SCS) and Damage Inspection System (DIS), the implementation of a 5G network as well as AI technologies, robot status diagnostics for optimal operating conditions based on Big Data and e-learning technologies, and finally an automatic charging function supported by energy harvesting.
