SmartyPump is a IoT+AI based digital product to fight against COVID-19 by using voice command to trigger a contactless hand sanitizer.
What are the problems you aim to help solve with this project?:
The world is facing a pandemic. Everything we touch, need to be sanitized; as our hands. But, how to sanitize hands without touching the liquid soap pump? Come and join my speaking session where I share how a smart home project was expanded to a smart building project and it is helping communities in the fight against COVID-19.
What are some of the major challenges you have encountered and how did you address them?:
The major problem was the lack of sensors. Because due to pandemic, my region is under quarantine, and I could not buy some sensors. Regarding this, I was forced to find another way to address the output of my project: using voice command.
