Abstract: The source of the infections in operating or patient rooms in hospitals can be difficult to identify, as patients, visitors, and physical objects can be transfer agents. Therefore, a comprehensive disinfection is necessary to minimize the risk of transmission and infection. If sanitization is done by human there is possibility that a person might get infected. Hence an Ultraviolet (UV) sterilization technology, along with sprayer, is used to aid in reduction of micro-organisms that may remain on the surfaces after a standard cleaning to the minimum number. Disinfectant Robot is used to sanitize an operating or a patient room and has UV lamps mounted on top of the robot platform covering 180° direction. The robot also has sprayers placed at the front end. The disinfectant robot is employed by an embedded system based on a Arduino UNO to aid in navigation to avoid obstacles.
