Yakut innovator became the hero of the Russian Federal Channel ‘Miracle of Technology’ program
Yakut businessman Nikolai Potapov, who created a cleaning robot for train stations, airports and shopping centers, became the hero of story “Handyman of the week” in “Miracle of Technology” program on NTV channel, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports.
Previously, Nikolai Potapov owned a cleaning company, but the quality of work was not always stable. Then the innovator, having assembled a small team, created his robot cleaner.
In an hour, the robot is able to wash 1,5 thousand square meters, orienting in space, avoiding obstacles and recognizing people. It is able to replace five workers. It uses the same 40 liters up to four times, cleaning it by filters, thus, the water economy is colossal.
Its price is 600 thousand rubles, which is three times cheaper than foreign counterparts. The developers have already managed to sell 10 machines in different regions of Russia, and there is interest from abroad.
“At present, 10 copies have been sold, five more have been given for testing. Poland, Hungary and Romania are also actively interested in our development,” told the entrepreneur.
The plans of Nikolai Potapov include the creation of a docking station, where the machine will be able to charge and replace water independently. According to him, this issue is now being worked out with Skolkovo.
