Atlanta Falcons to use drones to clean stadium after games

Beginning after the team's Oct. 11 game against the Carolina Panthers, the 71,000-seat stadium, which has not hosted fans for the first two home games because of the coronavirus pandemic, will welcome back a limited capacity. (The stadium hosted about 500 family members, friends and associates for a test run during Sunday's Bears-Falcons game.)

The Carolina Panthers appear to be the first NFL team to debut what team president Tom Glick called a "germ-zapping robot'' that has been used in locker rooms, office space and other parts of the building.

The Xenex LightStrike Robot is being billed as the world's only proven coronavirus killing Xenon UV-Ray Robot. The robot, according to the company, is 99.9% effective at killing the coronavirus germ within two minutes.

The drone technology will be used for post-event disinfecting of the stadium's seating bowl, handrails and glass partitions. The drones allow for a 95% reduction of the time needed to clean the seating bowl.

1. Will someone lose their jobs?

3. Yeah, good and bad.

I can see this being used in this circumstance, and I can see teams wanting to stick with it, at the unfortunate loss of jobs (and that's a good job for kids to have, I knew a couple of kids who had a part time job cleaning the stands after Mariners games, and they got to go to the games for free, too).

10. They still need people to clean up trash. This is just a good policy for sanitizing a large arena.

And it's not like the drones can fly themselves.
