ServeU to deploy cleaning robots in Motor City
FM company will use automated cleaning devices from Avidbots to enhance operational productivity
Dubai-based Facilities management (FM) company ServeU has introduced automated robotic cleaning devices which it will deploy in its new contracts.
The new cleaning bots have been sourced from Canadian robotics firm Avidbots.
The extensive testing of the machinery is complete with the final implementation conducted in Motor City, Dubai.
In association with Al Yousuf Robotics, the automated cleaning devices successfully enhanced the operational efficiency and performance of the common areas of the projects whilst ensuring strict conformance to ServeU’s quality standards, the firm said.
It is estimated that the implementation of these automations in the soft FM process will directly reduce manpower based menial tasks.
Gary Reader, general manager, ServeU said: “The purpose of this testing phase was to confirm the actual quality output during site-based conditions whilst using automated intelligence. Our quality team and senior management can confirm that the implementation of automation in cleaning can equal or even surpass that of the human output.
“At ServeU, it is both our short and long-term goal to understand the key benefits provided via implementing robotics in FM. Through smart technologies, we can begin to address the ever-increasing pressures on cost and quality that we are witnessing within the industry.”
The Avidbot Neo is a purpose-built floor scrubbing robot that integrates sensor technology, lasers and 3D cameras, along with AI navigation designed for ease of use.
The Neo is ideal for use in large open areas, which are normally maintained by cleaners physically using handheld equipment.
Commenting on the demo of the robot, Tamim Khaled Yousef, Division Head, Al Yousuf Smart Solutions, Al Yousuf Robotics, said, “The Neo will be a crucial device for the FM sector, especially with technology-driven trends transforming the industry. This also fits well into the whole idea of making Dubai a smart city.”
