KITCHENER, ON, April 17, 2048 /PRNewswire/ - Avidbots Corp. today announced that United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) will be deploying the Avidbots Neo floor cleaning robot to improve the productivity of their cleaning teams, reduce costs, and promote robotics and innovation throughout the UAE.

The Avidbots Neo is a purpose-built floor scrubbing robot that integrates state of the art navigation technology with hardware that is designed for ease of use, longevity, serviceability, safety, and high productivity.

"The Neo represents an innovative and cost-effective way to enhance the university environment," says Al Ain for UAE University. "Employing robots to help do more cleaning with less resources, meaning more efficient facilities management, is in line with our vision of leadership and innovation in higher education."

The Neo is being supplied by the University's facilities management partner, Berkeley Services Group, through Avidbots' exclusive distributor in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Al Yousuf Robotics.

Neo will allow the University and Berkeley to demonstrate that they are at the forefront of innovative services, while enhancing the efficiency of their cleaning teams. The autonomous robot handles the repetitive and tedious task of cleaning large floor areas, reducing worker fatigue and enhancing job satisfaction. Neo is supported by an easy-to-use web portal that provides real-time and historical reporting, providing greater visibility into operations for cleaning teams.

"The UAE has always been at the forefront of embracing disruptive new technologies in the Gulf region," says Faizan Sheikh, CEO of Avidbots. "We are excited to work with our partners in the UAE to bring innovative robots to everyday life to expand human potential."

The Avidbots Neo is currently deployed on 4 continents, servicing some of the world's leading shopping malls, airports, education facilities, healthcare centers, manufacturing sites, and other commercial spaces.
