As our global communities continue their battle with COVID-19, its highly virulent nature and speed of infection creates the urgent need for protective equipment and cleaning products. The World Health Organisation forecasts a further demand for 2.9 million litres of hand sanitiser in the coming months.
To flatten the curve, our IoT design leverages the smart delivery and maintenance of hand sanitiser to ensure strong hygiene for frontline medical staff and also public spaces.
Over the past 3 months, our team of 9 students, alongside our Faculty Advisor Selena Griffith, have been hard at work to develop the first prototype of the Smart Dispenser and its IoT features in response to COVID-19.
QuickSan has also been awarded a $1000 grant from The Awesome Foundation to assist our project in our fight against COVID-19. This achievement has supported the QuickSan team tremendously, especially its intense prototype stages.
