In this new world, there have been quite a few folks working on disinfection projects. Here’s a project for an autonomous disinfection robot with an excellent name that carries UVC lamps from Team Infinite Urchin via hackster.io:
Under the threat of the COVID-19 global pandemic, our team developed an autonomous disinfection robot to help combat the coronavirus. It carries several UVC lamps with the power of disinfecting the area between 30cm~200cm height range within a1.8-meter radius when moving under the speed of 3.3 cm/s. Two horizontally mounted UVC lamps are also installed(under the robot) to specifically disinfect the floor.
Our chassis structure is built from aluminum extrusion, acrylic plates, and 3D-printed parts, which are all low cost, easily accessible, and manufacturable. Besides, M3 holes are intentionally cut on the acrylic plates to provide more flexibility of adding external modules. Just like “LEGO” has sorts of building blocks that can be easily assembled and create various works, our robot is designed to make the assembly simple and quick and to provide more extendable functionalities.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
