New requirements create new opportunities and new opportunities lead to new experiments. The Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering, NMAMIT introduced a unique cost-effective ‘AUTOFLUSH’, designed and developed by a team of faculty members: Mr. Anil Kumar Bhat, Mr. Bommegowda KB, Dr. Subramanya Bhat and Dr. Shivaprakasha KS.
Autoflush uses IR sensors. Instead of manually flushing water in the toilet, the person can hold his hand in front of the sensor which generates a pulse to trigger a solenoid valve. This enables automatic flushing of water for the desired interval. The product was launched by Dr. Niranjan N Chiplunkar, Principal, NMAMIT, Nitte on 29th June 2020.
