Abstracts

COVID-19 created the necessity of sanitizing every corner to keep life secured. In conventional means, sanitization is handled by sprinklers in a variety of shapes and sizes. These sprinklers are either human-controlled or machine-controlled and do the job by placing them on the floor. The conventional sprinkling system is risky and exerts tremendous pressure on the working personnel; also, it does not assure of covering the entire space intended for. The proposed autosprinkler overcomes these limitations by attaching it to the roof/ceiling and performs the process of sprinkling the disinfectant solution in mist form while being rotated at a 360° angle to ensure more coverage. The sprinkling distance is measured automatically using ultrasonic sensor. The Wi-Fi module in the system gets the data inputs from a Web site where the admin user can enter the start/stop time and duration of the spray. This system keeps a strict check on whether the place is sanitized or not and gives an alert notification if it has been a long time since the last sanitization took place. The prototype was tested and found to be very useful during the COVID-19 pandemic.
