KITCHENER, Ont. — Avidbots, a robotics company, announced the launch of Neo 2, their next generation autonomous robot floor scrubber platform.

According to a recent survey, 80% of businesses consider cleanliness and sanitation their top concern when managing the risk of COVID-19 to employees, customers, and the public. Avidbots has reportedly seen a 100% increase in demand since the COVID-19 pandemic reached North America.

Designed for cleaning and sanitizing vast commercial spaces with hard-flooring, Neo 2 offers organizations the opportunity to free up cleaning staff to focus on high-touch areas as well as ensuring a consistent cleaning experience. Many businesses (80%) expressed concern about the ability of their dedicated cleaning staff to comprehensively clean against COVID-19.

Neo 2 is powered by the Avidbots AI Platform and features a market-leading 14 sensors, resulting in 360 degrees visibility and advanced obstacle avoidance. Coupled with advanced diagnostics and the proprietary Avidbots Command Center, Neo 2 operates with minimal human intervention. Moving at speeds up to 1.35m/4.43 ft per second, Neo 2 cleans and sanitizes more effectively and efficiently than humans, allowing the cleaning team to focus on other areas while Neo 2 takes care of the floors. With increased needs for disinfection in the ‘new normal’, Neo 2 will soon offer a Disinfectant Add-on with capacity to disinfect high-touch 3-D surfaces.


“We are excited to launch Neo 2 as the next iteration of our world-leading autonomous, floor-scrubbing robot platform. Building on the great success of the previous version, Neo 2 delivers a quality, reliable, and measurable floor-cleaning solution to commercial spaces,” said Faizan Sheikh, CEO and co-founder of Avidbots in a prepared statement. “In a time when businesses need consistent, high-quality cleaning, and disinfecting, Neo 2 offers a smart answer for companies needing to reassure customers, partners and employees alike.”

“As a robotics-first company, we’re proud to release the next generation of Neo, setting a new standard for floor cleaning robots as we continue to bring robots to everyday life to expand human potential” said Pablo Molina, chairman, CTO, VP of product and co-founder of Avidbots.

According to a statement, Avidbots provides robotics solutions to some companies across manufacturing, warehousing, education, healthcare, airports, retail and beyond, such as DHL, Singapore Changi Airport, and 3M.
