Touch Less, Do More: Social Distancing Improvement Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic has improved the way we interact with persons, factors, and the world all-around us. Use an Arduino Nano or MKR board to develop solutions that can enable us practice improved social distancing, increase queue management, or permit contact-free technologies.

Produce a alternative that can be applied to units that at this time rely upon manually pushing a button e.g. elevators, pedestrian crossings, doorway entry methods, sanitizer dispensers, and so forth.

Social Length Enablement and Monitoring

Produce a alternative that will make it possible for persons to keep the proposed distance aside (1m to 2m) to properly operate in the office, manufacturing facility, commute to operate on community transportation, or socially interact in cafes and parks. The time persons devote within just close proximity to each individual other could also be a aspect deemed within just the design.

N.B. The purpose of the level of competition is to generate products and solutions that are ready to enable persons all-around the world to shift forward with their lives and properly emerge from lockdown limitations, somewhat than developing health care units.

Submission to this Obstacle will have to be received at 12:00 PM PT, July fourteen, 2020.
