Target Amount (Facebook Fundraiser):234,758$

The goal is to fundraise the development of at least 10 autonomous MUV robot and 50 mechanical ones to be donated to the hospitals fighting COVID on the front lines. The robots use a solution based on Uv asap - C to efficiently dizinfect the surrounding area. By partnering with MODULAB, Funky Citizens aim at covering their production costs.
Update, July 2020
50 mechanical robots are prepared to be sent to variety of hospitals around the country.
Unfortunately the target sum was not met and the production of autonomous robots was not possible. Regardless, the campaign has inspired the foundations of BCR and Kaufland to adopt a hospital and fund the purchase of an autonomous robot. The aim was not only to bring a better state of cleanliness in the hospitals but to promote technological innovation as a way of achieving better conditions for the patients and for the personnel.
