Abu Dhabi Airport and Tawazun Economic Council have partnered to launch an unmanned ground vehicle CoDi BOT UGV, for the disinfection of viruses including COVID-19.

The concept has been designed and manufactured by Marakeb Technologies, an affiliate company of Tawazun Strategic Development Fund.

The robot will be piloted from May 2020 across the airport including in staff areas and cargo facilities, as well as during cabin sanitisation processes on passenger aircraft, state-run Abu Dhabi Media Office said.

The CoDi BOT is equipped with Marakeb Technologies' MAP Pro System to enable communication, as well as 4G communication links for transfer of real-time videos and information. 

The robot is also equipped with a disinfection package to contain infectious diseases, control temperatures and perform cleaning operations.
