New Delhi, July 14, 2020: Vehant Technologies - www.vehant.com - a pioneer in artificial intelligence/ machine learning based security surveillance and Covid solutions and International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI), Hyderabad have jointly developed KritiScan UV Baggage Disinfection System for hotels, commercial and private complexes, airports, terminals and railway stations for the disinfection of baggage. KritiScan UV is highly suitable for deployment at public places where people move around with hand baggage, inactivating up to 99.9% of all microbes and viruses on the surfaces of bags/luggage/objects.
As the country witnesses growing cases every day, though at a moderate rate, it is very important to reduce the multiplication and outbreak. With the increase in the number of passengers travelling through airways/trains/buses and with the reopening of commercial complexes, baggage disinfection at airports, railway and metro stations and at the entrance of commercial complexes etc. has become highly essential to avoid spread of infection . In this regard, UV-C based tunnel disinfection systems play a significant role.
Helping to protect passengers and staff from tactile transmission of contagious disease as they pass through security checkpoints at various places, Vehant Technologies’ KritiScan® UV system automatically disinfects baggage as they are being transported from the reclaim area back to the divest station. Also,the UV-C lights pose no exposure risk to staff or passengers and can be installed quickly and easily.
Kapil Bardeja, CEO and Co-Founder, Vehant Technologies said, “Viral borne infections like COVID-19, MERS, SARS, etc spread tremendously from public places like hotels, commercial and private complexes, airports, terminals and railway stations. As many people closely interact in a contained environment, it is imperative to keep a close tab on frequently touched items. The sensing mechanism in the chamber automatically detects the entry of any item into it and powers the system and and disinfects the 360 degree surface of any baggage.”
Dr. G. Padmanabhan, Director, International Advance Research Center for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI) said, “The World is currently reeling under the worst ever pandemic situation with COVID 19. Given the circumstances ARCI and Vehant Technologies decided to come together to develop an advanced UV based baggage disinfectant system.
