Introduced a system that kills COVID-19 in cars using ultraviolet lightOctober 12, 2020
Chinese company Yanfeng introduced its UV surface disinfectant in 2019.
Interior maker Yanfeng has announced its next step in the fight against germs, including COVID-19, inside cars. Yanfeng Technology CTO Han Hendrix said the new Experience in Motion 2021 Shared (XiM21S) concept, due early next year, will include two ways to fight bacteria and viruses.
The first solution is to apply an antibacterial coating to kill germs on high-touch areas such as handles. The second method uses the ultraviolet light function first shown in the XiM20 concept.
“We have launched a technology that uses ultraviolet C (UVC) light, which has a spectrum capable of killing 99.9% of all bacteria and viruses, including the COVID-19 virus, in minutes,” – Hendrix said. “This is not the lighting technology we invented. It is used for cleaning operating rooms in hospitals. But we have developed a solution where it can be integrated into a ceiling console. “
However, the FDA currently says published data on the wavelength, dose and duration of UV radiation required to inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19 is limited.
The idea is for the system to scan the interior within 30 seconds and kill germs in high-touch areas to ensure the vehicles are clean.
