ERLANGER. Ky. (WKRC) - The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) announced Monday that it will be using floor-scrubbing robots to autonomously clean the airport, 24/7.
According to CVG, it will be the first US airport to use the Avidbots Neo floor-scrubbing robot.
“At CVG, we aim to embrace what’s next in all that we do,” said Candace McGraw, CEO of CVG Airport. “Introducing new technologies to elevate the passenger experience is critical to our business. In the challenging and uncertain times we find ourselves, making sure our facilities are safe and clean is our top priority, so Neo has been a great asset to our team to ensure a high standard of cleanliness is met.”
Avidbots Neo is the only fully autonomous floor-scrubbing robot on the market. Most other floor cleaning robots need to be pre-programmed to follow a set route; but Avidbots Neo uses advanced AI, cameras, and 3D sensors to respond and adapt to its environment.
“CVG is one of the world’s most innovative airports, deploying the latest technologies to deliver the very best passenger experience, so we aren’t surprised they are the first airport in the U.S. to deploy the Avidbots Neo floor-scrubbing robot,” said Faizan Sheikh, CEO and co-founder of Avidbots. “Neo works 24/7 to keep CVG’s facilities spic and span, ensuring a safe and healthy environment for airport visitors, passengers and staff.”
