A team of staff and students from the Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering, NMAM Institute of Technology, Nitte, designed and developed a simple and cost-effective Touch-less Hand Sanitizer Dispenser kit at Research and Innovation Center, Nitte.
The most effective medicine for COVID-19 is social distancing, frequent use of sanitizer and washing hands regularly. In work areas, many people sharing common sanitizer might lead to issues. The developed product dispenses sanitizer upon sensing the presence of the hand. The product has features like automatic hand detection, indication for power and sanitizer quantity in the system.
The product was launched by Dr. Niranjan N Chiplunkar, Principal, NMAMIT, Nitte on 13th May 2020. The Principal addressed the gathering and mentioned the need for such innovations during critical situations like Corona. Dr. Suryanarayana K, Professor, Dept. of EEE welcomed the gathering and made a mention of the constant support received from the Management, Principal and members of the department during the project execution phase.
