Swiss robots use UV light to detect viruses on planes
Switzerland has begun to test a robot that uses virus-killing ultraviolet light to disinfect airplanes. The robot was designed by Swiss startup UVeya, who has partnered with Dubai-based airport services company Dnata to test the tool inside Embraer jets from Helvetic Airways. UV light has been used for years to clean hospitals and laboratories, as it can kill more than 99% of bacteria.
