MUDRA (Mahindra University UV Désinfectant Robot Autonome)

MUDRA is an Autonomous Unmanned Vehicle (AUV) Disinfecting Robot built by Mahindra University.

3. Avoids obstacles and re-charts its path intelligently.
4. Moves from one room to another on the same floor without any human intervention.
5. Operates UV lights to disinfect various work locations and spaces.
6. Switches off UV whenever human presence is detected around it.
