A grade 7 Indian student, Siddh Sanghvi, in the UAE has created a robot that dispenses sanitizers. The robot can detect a hand from a range of 30 cm by sensing its movement and dispensing sanitizer without the user needing to touch the bottle.
Coronavirus can be spread by touching contaminated surfaces. People touch sanitizer bottle with the hand while cleaning their hands and it could lead to spread of the infectious virus.
The robot provides the non-touch, self dispensing hand sanitizing solution.
