This newest robot CodiBot was manufactured by UAE-based company Marakeb Technologies. With the help of real-time video and 4G data connection, the unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) will disinfect Abu Dhabi Airports, which will ensure the operators’ safety, eliminating the risk of human exposure.

It is expected that robots will disinfect staff areas, cargo facilities and aircraft, ensuring clean and sterile. The CodiBot is designed to improve the process of sterilisation as part of preventive measures at Abu Dhabi airport. The full list of which includes thermal screening, nasal swabbing, and polymerase chain reaction testing, in line with the recommendations by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (Mohap).

Shareef Hashim Al Hashmi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports said, “…we have a clear responsibility to ensure our spaces remain clear of any virus threat. By deploying artificial intelligence, we add another layer of protection and build on our comprehensive response to the COVID-19 outbreak.”
