A new class of cleaning robots that uses heat to melt away grime and debris from hot spots in the City has been launched in Brooklyn.
The Brooklyn Tech School of Business created a $2 million grant last year to develop a prototype of the machine that can be used to clean hot spots across the city.
The machine is expected to be used by businesses and other cleaning organizations in 2018 and 2021.
The Brooklyn Tech school plans to start using it on a small scale in 2020.
The machines are being tested by a number of businesses and the Brooklyn Tech community, said Andrew DeSantis, the school’s director of marketing and partnerships.
They have been tested in a variety of locations around the city, and they are currently being used in a few restaurants and bars.
The robots can be controlled remotely, and DeSantes said they will be able to clean a large amount of debris in a short amount of time.
DeSants said they hope to expand the program to more places by 2020.
