UPES students create an automated sanitizer machine with limited resources
Nowadays when the world is grappling with the coronavirus pandemic, a team of two final year computer science students of UPES, Mayank from B.Tech., CS (Graphics and Gaming) and Kshitij from B.Tech., CS (Internet of Things) have created a fully automated sanitizer machine using limited resources. The prototype is made up of household trash including batteries, motors, water pumps coupled with microcontroller and sensor chip.
When tested, the machine rendered successful in the very first attempt. Although limited resources posed a constraint to Mayank and Kshitij, an improved model can be of great help during these unprecedented times. Mayank has thanked the UPES faculty and staff for their constant support in providing them with high-quality education and a rich learning experience.
Elaborating about the invention, Mayank said that this machine can do wonders in times of a global health emergency, where social distancing is the need of the hour. It solves several purposes apart from sanitization. The machine can be used to distribute masks and medicines to those under treatment or quarantine. It can also be used for patrolling containment areas to identify defaulters. According to Mayank, Prototypes have already been used in the United States of America, China, and Russia and so India can also implement this technology to deal with the crisis and protect our first line of defence.
Kshitij, another teammate, said that this fully automated sanitizer machine is a practical idea and can be produced even in a limited budget. He added that this is not the first time they have made the first fully automated machine. During their tenure in college, they made 3D books for nursery children and an electronic Electrocardiogram machine for heart patients.
