LionsBot, a Singapore-headquartered smart robotics company announces the launch of Rex, its first ‘king-size’ autonomous cleaning robot for large commercial spaces that caters to commercial and industrial settings. The cleaning robot features an auto docking station that automatically returns to the docking station where it charges and manages its solution levels with automated rinsing and water exchange. It is also adept at navigating tight corners with a high-definition precision LiDAR sensor. Its vision technology is made up of 32 lasers, four depth cameras, and three sonar sensors, that have a scan coverage diameter of 200 metres, enabling it to scan its environment comprehensively and optimise its cleaning path accordingly. Rex can clean 4,032 square metres or the size of a football field in one hour; the highest cleaning efficiency in its size class.
Mr. Dylan Ng Terntzer, CEO and co-founder of LionsBot, said: “We are thrilled to unveil the Rex to the world. It is jam-packed with technical prowess, and we are confident that every operator will love to have a Rex as their day-to-day work companion. At LionsBot, we refuse to stick to the playbook when making robots. We always strive to develop robots that are fun and exciting. Leveraging our track record with the LeoBot, we also want to ensure that our robots are easy to use for everyone. By making robots that cleaners love to use, we aim to give our cleaners superpowers by easing their workload as one cleaner can operate multiple robots at a time.
The new scrubbing robot was conceptualised during the pandemic with the aim to both empower the cleaning workforce and to keep them safe.
“Beyond empowering cleaners, more significantly, we see the Rex as a standing testament to Singapore’s engineering capabilities,” said Mr. Ng Terntzer. “Despite the logistic challenges and supply-chain constraints caused by the pandemic, we were able to bring the Rex from conceptualisation to deployment within a mere 10 months during this unprecedented period.”
The first Rex robot will be deployed at National Gallery Singapore in December 2021. More robots will be rolled out in LionsBot’s 22 markets in the near term. The Rex will make its debut outside Singapore at The Cleaning Show 2021, the UK’s largest cleaning and hygiene event, taking place at ExCel, London on 2 – 4 November 2021.
LionsBot has created a range of autonomous floor-cleaning machines and UV disinfection products equipped with their own cloud operation system, LionsCloud. The company’s flagship robot, LeoBot, was awarded the prestigious Amsterdam Innovation Award in 2020, the first Asian company to win this coveted prize. LionsBot cleaning robots are in 22 countries across Europe and Asia so far.
