“With the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, the need for tech-enabled cleaning and hygiene solutions at workplaces is now higher than ever. Robots and automated machines can play a vital role during this crisis as they can minimise human intervention and enable social distancing. Many countries have already deployed robots that can clean large surfaces without requiring any human assistance, and India is also ruminating about the potential of cleaning robots in combating the pandemic.”
