Floor scrubbing robots or Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) are autonomous floor scrubbing machines that map, navigates and cleans floors without the need for a manual operator. Robotic floor scrubbers are ideal for tackling dull, repetitive, labour-intensive floor cleaning tasks and are particularly useful to increase productivity over large floor areas.
Benefits of Robotic Floor Scrubbers
The Impact of the Pandemic
During the global health crisis it has been more important than ever to free up staff to do other high-value cleaning tasks. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of robotic automation in cleaning activities due to a higher demand for the level and frequency of cleaning and disinfecting.
Dennis Collins, Senior Product Manager at Tennant Company, has found that “customers are embracing robotics more than ever before” during the pandemic. “The pandemic has put a focus on cleanliness and cleanliness is now part of a company’s brand,” he said. “Automation can help our customers improve the cleanliness of their facilities, creating healthier and safer spaces for their employees and customers.
Robotic floor scrubbers are ideal for scrubbing large floor areas including retail and grocery stores, airports, schools, hospitals, warehouses, logistics centres, manufacturing facilities and other public locations.
Robotic floor scrubbers are generally the same as the core cleaning machines already in use and fitted with an array of sensors and the on-board Artificial Intelligence BrainOS® interface. This significantly simplifies training & adoption by cleaning teams as they are familiar with the base model floor scrubber.
