With its powerful connectivity capabilities, the new cleaning robot promotes the standardization, digitalization and development of intelligent cleaning services, which is integral to smart building management.

Commercial service robots specialist Pudu Robotics has enhanced its product portfolio with the new Afra C1 cleaning robot, which made its global debut at CES 2022 (Jan 5-8).

This, the first international appearance of the Afra C1, marks Pudu Robotics' official entry into the commercial cleaning robot market, as it seeks to explore applications of digital technology in hygiene and sanitation services.

High-quality professional deep cleaning products have become an apparent need for most people in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cleaning robots offer the advantages of contactless and intelligent cleaning, especially when compared to manual services, presenting a rare strategic development opportunity in the commercial cleaning robot industry.

Pudu Robotics' Afra C1 cleaning robot is designed to help the traditional cleaning industry meet the challenges of smart transformation.

The Afra C1 is designed for a variety of cleaning scenarios and is capable of multiple functions, including scrubbing, sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, automatic water refilling and debris discharge, autonomous driving, auto elevator taking, e-gate and auto-gate passage, auto access control, and multi-floor operations.

The Afra C1 is also equipped with a built-in roller brush, squeegee and removable dust vacuum that allows it to adapt to various floor types in buildings and residences, including hard floors and soft carpet.

In addition to its comprehensive capabilities, Afra C1 offers multiple shell options that enable it to adapt to different settings and enhance the overall image and perception of cleaning services.

Moreover, the robot is billed as "a delight to use," with its large 10.1-inch touch screen and support for custom operation panel heights and angles.

In order to adapt to the growing "Internet of Everything" trends, Pudu Robotics designed Afra C1 to be connected to various IoT devices, ranging from building elevators and e-gates to access control systems, communications, and upper-layer software.

As reckoned by its manufacturer, "with its powerful connectivity capabilities, the cleaning robot promotes the standardization, digitalization and development of intelligent cleaning services, which is integral to smart building management."
