Healthcare-associated Infections (HAIs) are infections acquired by patients within healthcare settings while receiving treatment for other ailments. HAIs affect around 1 in 30 patients, and are attributed to ~99,000 deaths in the US each year, as per the CDC.

Current methods of cleaning in healthcare facilities rely upon manual labor and are not able to target objects that lead to greater risk of HAI. There is a need for an autonomous system that can operate independently to detect and target high risk areas for cleaning.
