Violet is an autonomous vehicle endowed with a UV source, able to navigate in indoor hospital environments and disinfect the rooms from virus and bacteria. Violet will be able to simplify and improve the cleaning activities of those spaces.

UV-Disinfection Robot

The UVD Robot is used as part of the regular cleaning cycle, and aims at preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases, virus, bacteria, and other types of harmful organic microorganisms in the environment by breaking down their DNA-structure. The robot is safe, reliable and eliminates human error. Furthermore, it is user friendly and is designed to be operated by every-day cleaning staff. In Italy will be used in the Marche Region’s hospitals.


Aethon Tug mobile robots perform delivery and transportation tasks in hospitals to give staff more time to focus on patient care. During coronavirus outbreack Tug has been tested for automate delivery of pharmacy medications and laboratory specimens and heavier loads such as meals, linens, and environmental services, reducing the need to physical contact with positive subjects.


Tactile Robots designs, builds and commercializes autonomous robots that deliver food, drinks and small goods inside indoor commercial spaces such as Hotels, Hospitals and restourants.Compact and agile, it is suitable for narrows spaces. Its innovative feature is its capability to feel physical interactions, which makes it capable to understand user commands and increase its safety.


Tholomeus is a software able to communicate with multiple devices, such as pressure sensors, ECG etc. Data are collected and analysed by the software with the ultimate goal to generate a report for the physician, who will then provide a diagnosis.

The Right Place

The right place software helps in optimizing hospital processes as well as the workflows of nurses, physicians, and other hospital personnel. For example, it provides real-time information and status of all available beds, analytical data including occupancy, referral volume, the average length of stay, gender of the patient, etc.

Supercomputer-based Rapid Treatment Trials

Using the world’s fastest supercomputer, two researchers ran detailed simulations of interactions between the coronavirus and 9000 different compounds that could potentially be repurposed as COVID-19 drugs.


Stevie is the world’s most advanced social robot, developed in Dublin, Ireland by Akara Robotics. Stevie is designed to live and work in retirement communities, augmenting rather than replacing the role of carers, freeing them up to focus more on person-centric tasks and so improving care outcomes for residents.


SpiroSmart is a low-cost mobile phone application that performs spirometry sensing using the built-in microphone. SpiroSmart has been tested on 52 subjects, showing a mean error of 5.1% compared to a clinical spirometers, showing that pulmonologists can use it to diagnose varying degrees of obstructive lung ailments.

SMASH Agrobot

The SMASH project is aimed at monitoring the vineyard ecosystem and managing high-quality grapes using navigation and sensing techniques.AgroBot is designed to move through the vineyard and target the wine and agriculture sustainability. Robots are currently being tested on Castellani’s grapevines in Pisa province.
