The mUVe™ Robo-Disinfector will disinfect surfaces throughout the Javits Center exhibit hall, moving around autonomously during conference after-hours. Moving and disinfecting at a speed of 18 inches per second (or 90 feet per minute), mUVe™ will be pre-programmed with its advanced mapping technology to record the floor plan of the conference and use a powerful beam of UVC-254nm light to disinfect surface pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2 and its variants, at a targeted 99.9%+ efficacy rate within a one-meter radius. mUVe™ will help provide an additional layer of safety measures through autonomous surface disinfection to LightFair, in conjunction with the conference’s “Safer Floor. Safer Show.” protocols.
“We are honored and pleased to partner with both LightFair and Javits Center in their efforts to provide conference attendees extra peace of mind during the show,” said Michael Decker, VP of Marketing at Energy Focus. “This is a high-profile opportunity for us to not only help make the convention site cleaner and safer, but also to showcase mUVe’s advanced and impactful capability to disinfect large spaces with precision, speed and efficiency without the use of chemicals and sprays.”
