MITE students innovate to fight pandemic
Technology has been the silver lining in the fight against COVID-19 and has changed the way the world is battling the pandemic. Our students designed viable solutions that would aid the people who are combating COVID-19 from the front: A website that provides crucial information on COVID-19 and a low-cost Automatic Sanitizer Dispenser.
Contactless Sanitiser dispenser for a cost less than INR. 1000
Sriram S, a student of Mechatronics Engineering designed a sensor-based automatic hand sanitizer dispenser that is portable and low-cost. The dispenser that could be handy in public places has a cost of production below INR 1000 and is a step closer to preventing community spread of COVID-19. The touch-free dispenser uses a sensor to detect and hence activate a pump that dispenses the sanitizer. The model uses a USB charger to power up and could be table or wall-mounted. The dispenser is installed at Aadya Dental Clinic in Bengaluru and would be installed in a few more clinics this week.
COVID Live tracking Website
The student team from Information Science, Joy D’Souza, Niranjan Mallya, Shashank and Praneeth designed a website, Corona Tracker with which one can have an eye on the number of positive cases, recovery and death toll and other details of COVID-19 of a region. The live verified data is fetched from the API to be displayed on the website.
This includes the detailed statistics which consist of numbers such as confirmed COVID-19 cases, the number of patients recovered and the number of deaths, etc. The website also flaunts an interactive chart of India through which the user could find COVID-19 cases across the states just by hovering over it.
