We're waltzing through the Covid crisis with our robot sanitisation squad. At K11 MUSEA, we’re always seeking innovative solutions to improve how we do things, and this week, our brand new fleet of expert cleaners are ready to get down to work! These little fellows may don twinkling eyes and cute expressions, but don’t be fooled by their friendly appearances — they are vicious when it comes to exterminating viruses and bacteria.
To make K11 MUSEA the safest place in Hong Kong, we’ve deployed 11 autonomous robots for the deep sanitisation job and to double down on our already stringent hygiene and anti-epidemic measures. Throughout this week and during our operating hours once we reopen on 6 March, these roving robots will be travelling all over K11 MUSEA to continuously disinfect every nook and cranny of our cultural-retail destination.
Each of our cleaning robots is equipped with up to 10 litres of sterilising solution that is certified to eliminate 99.99% of germs and viruses including Covid-19, but is safe for the human body. With a huff and a puff, the robot will spray the disinfectant into the air and the floor, covering a 4.5-metre radius as it travels through the premises.
Following the SLAM navigation system, which offers a predetermined map of the surroundings, the robot cleaners are able to quickly familiarise themselves with the lay of the land and zip their way through all levels of K11 MUSEA.
The autonomous robots are also equipped with three types of anti-collision sensors – including LiDAR, depth cameras, and ultrasonic sensors – which are the same as ones that you’d find in an automated parking system, allowing them to “see” up to 20 metres.
But it’s not all work and no play – check out our video to catch these fun-loving robots drooling over freshly baked croissants, appreciating fine art, and tearing up the dancefloor – probably mimicking their favourite stars on hit show Bridgerton, as they waltz across K11 MUSEA’s grand atrium!
Next time you’re visiting us, keep an eye out for these robotic cleaners that are working hard to safeguard K11 MUSEA and our community.

Online Eco-leadership Programme
Do you know how many insect species live in Hong Kong? 10,000, 20,000 or 30,000? No one knows the exact number, but for sure, they exceed any other groups of animals or plants in terms of diversity. Another certainty is the paramount role that insects play in the functioning and health of ecosystems, even if these roles are often underappreciated or even misunderstood by most people.
Nature Discovery Park and the School of Biological Sciences of The University of Hong Kong co-developed the online eco-leadership programme, which aims to introduce the ecological importance of biodiversity and participants will learn about the direct resources insects provide to human, as well as the influence they have in science and art.
