[CES 2021 All Digital] LG’s UV-C Disinfecting Robot Featured at Paley Center ‘Best of CES 2021’ Showcase Event

LG Autonomous Robot Singled Out from Thousands of Products Unveiled at CES 2021

In recognition of its technological advances and the potential for immediate real-world impact, the new CLOi Autonomous UV-C Robot from LG Business Solutions was featured at The Paley Center’s Best of CES® 2021 product showcase and panel discussion. The robot is designed to efficiently disinfect various commercial environments using UV-C light and was one of only four products selected for demonstration by the Paley Media Council from among thousands introduced at Digital CES 2021.

According to Jeffrey Weiland, LG Business Solutions USA’s robotics team lead, “This special recognition validates LG’s dedication and determination to rapidly develop this vital public health tool. The past year has proven that the importance of public sanitation will only continue to grow, and LG is proud to play a role in designing technological tools to help businesses improve the safety of their spaces for customers and employees.”

The new LG CLOi Autonomous UV-C Robot is expected to enable a new standard of hygiene for commercial environments by automatically disinfecting high-touch, high-traffic areas. The autonomous robot will move easily around tables, chairs and other furniture to irradiate and disinfect a room’s touchable surfaces in minutes. It will be capable of disinfecting multiple areas on a single battery charge.

To ensure consistent operation and simplify worker interactions, staff can monitor the robots’ progress via remote updates to smartphones or tablets. Employees are protected from exposure to UV rays by the robot’s safety lock, which can be triggered by an internal motion detector when humans are present, by pressing an on-board emergency stop button, or via the mobile application.

The global news network AVING News has dispatched reporters to CES for 15 consecutive years since 2006, reporting the most number of news globally. After exhibition, it will hold CES 2021 Review Conference to share insight on CES at the end of January.
