As the government has allowed select industries to open offices from 20 April, 2020many companies are working on solutions to combat COVID-19 and maintain a sanitized environment to reduce the risk of infection. Taking a cue from China, Indians are experimenting with technology to create solutions for hands-free sanitization devices. One such example is of automatic sanitizing apparatus, invented by Baljit Singh, vice president operations head of Brookfield Properties. According to the press note, this apparatus is expected to play a very vital role in gaining the confidence of people while using a public or personal transport.
Now that people are preparing to get back to work, mobility is to become unavoidable. However, it will be very tough for operators or owners to keep vehicles’ seats, surfaces, touchpoints, interiors surfaces, and others disinfect efficiently. Sanitizing such areas manually is not only tedious but also hazardous and time-consuming. In addition, there will be a high risk of getting an infection during manual disinfection. Keeping this in mind, Singh has invented a technology that enables sanitization by performing automated spray of disinfectant on public transport vehicles, such as cars, taxies, ambulances, vans, buses, flights, trains, and it can be utilized to sanitize elevators as well.
