Kerala college students develop automatic sanitiser dispenser

Can be used over 600 times before needing refill

The device has been developed by third-year Electrical and Electronics students P Geethesh and Ron Steve. The device was handed over to Agriculture Minister V S Sunil Kumar and has been installed at the Kochi Collectorate. The device senses one’s hand and dispenses the sanitising liquid.

The device has been fitted with infrared sensors and can be installed in offices and homes. Due to the low cost of technology used in the device, it is available for INR 500. With a capacity of 750 ml, the dispenser can be used 652 times before needing a refill.

The dispenser can run on electricity or batteries. Four AA batteries of 1.5V can be used to run the device 10,000 times. 10 devices will be distributed free of cost to various offices in the district.
