In order to contain the spread of the coronavirus, the research institute in Stuttgart has developed the prototype of a mobile cleaning and disinfection robot in a short time. It navigates autonomously to potentially contaminated objects, such as door handles, and disinfects them thoroughly. The robot is gentle on resources and time-saving.
