SRM Institute of Science and Technology committed to work towards outreach programs through Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA) by adopting several villages. Chettipuniyam in Chengalpattu is one such village which is located 11kms away from the institution.

In order to promote the hygiene in Chettipuniyam village, the institute had planned to gift the Contact Less Thermometer and Hand Sanitizer to Hayagriva temple. Devotee from across Nation visits these temple throughout the year.  The event was planned on October 16th, 2020 along with tree plantation. The faculties of Architecture department, ECE department of SRMIST and many other supporting staffs were volunteered for the event along with Dr.V.Thirumurugan, Associate director ,Campus life and Nodal Officer-UBA   SRMIST, Dr.P.Satheesh Kumar, Dean- School of Architecture and Interior Design SRMIST,Dr.T. Rama Rao , HOD ECE Department , SRMIST,

People from the surrounding villages were gathered along with Mr. Gunasekaran- Ex Panchayat President, Mr. Vasudevan- Panchayat Secretary, Mr. Tamil Selvan – Temple Administrator, other village and Tempe Dignitaries. Infront of temple and volunteered themselves to be part of the event. 

The gathering was addressed by Dr.V.Thirumurugan, Associate Director-Campus life and Nodal Officer-UBA   SRMIST. The benefits of UBA scheme and the role of SRMIST in establishing various technical and nontechnical interventions was elaborated by the UBA nodal officer to the localities.

The chief guest Dr.P.Satheesh Kumar, Dean- School of Architecture and Interior Design delivered a speech about the importance hygiene and safety during COVID19.  The mechanism of the Contact Less Thermometer and Hand Sanitizer was explained by Dr.Kalimuthu, ECE department of SRMIST.

Women’s from the villages were invited to take part of the demo session. Followed by, the Mr.Gunasekaran, Ex-president of the panchayat has honoured the dignitaries and appreciated the actions of SRMIST towards the well-being of the Chettipuniyam village.

Name of the Project: Contact less Thermometer and Touch Free sanitizer

Team Members: Dr.K.Kalimuthu, Dr.C.T.Manimegalai, Dr.Sabitha Gauni and Mr.JosephRaj PL, Dept. of ECE, SRMIST, Kattankulathur.

Project Scheme: UBA – SEG –COVID-19

Short Description about the Project

Covid 19 pandemic situation has created an impact that an equipment like “Contact less sanitizer & Temperature detector” is necessary to be placed at public locationswith huge movement of human beings. This is a unique design, with two facilities integrated in it as the name implies. Itmeasures the temperature of the person standing in front of the equipment using an Infrared Temperature sensorand delivers 2 ml of sanitizer in the hands when it is placed below the sensor without any physical contact. The equipment is portable, movable and user friendly, weighing around 22 Kgs with 5 feet height. The wheels present at the bottom helps in mobilizing the equipment with less effort and the wheel lock keeps it fixed when required.

The sanitizer is stored in a 5 litre tank, made of ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) material that would avoid corrosion due to the chemical properties of the liquid. A sensor is responsible to detect the liquid level of the tank. It generates beep sound when the liquid level goes below 200 mL as an alert to refillthe sanitizer. A 12V battery backup is used that operates for almost 4 hours in the absence of main power supply. The amount of flow and throw speed of the sanitizer liquid can be controlled using a knob.

The Temperature detector displays the value either in Celsius or Fahrenheit format as per the choice using a switch. It is designed in such a way that its height can be adjusted which is useful to measure the temperature of different people with different height measurements. The temperature values higher than the normal values (i.e)above 99 F or 37.2 C,  will be displayed in Red color along with a beep sound. The recorded temperature details will be saved accordingly in a temporary storage device in the CST file format for future use.
