"Touch-cum-proximity sensor" will curb the corona virus

 Delhi : There is a saying that necessity is the mother of invention. Yes, time, time and circumstance teach a person everything. Talking about today's period, the corona epidemic has completely changed people. In the time of this pandemic, different governments, groups and every individual in the society of the world has learned a lot. The special thing is that India has been in the leading role in this sequence. In the Corona period, India has been in a leadership role before the world.

India in a leadership role before the world

In fact, for the prevention of corona epidemic and prevention of its spread, while on the one hand, the Kovid vaccination campaign was launched in India, on the other hand, new technological innovations have also been done. In a way, India kept a flurry of medicine and medical equipment. Although now the graph of corona infection is falling continuously in India, but it cannot be called the end of the epidemic at all because even before this three waves of corona epidemic have been seen.

Touch-cum-proximity sensor will curb the virus

That is why India is still making all its efforts to protect against Corona. In this episode, a new technology has been invented. It will be a one-of-a-kind touch-less touch screen technology that can curb the virus spread through contact.

Indian scientists did charisma at low cost

Indian scientists have provided an economical solution through printing technology to develop a low cost touch-cum-proximity sensor ie touch-cum-proximity sensor called Touchless Touch Sensor.

Touch-less touch screen essential for ATM and vending machines

The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated efforts to adapt our lifestyles to pandemic scenarios. Businesses have naturally been inspired by strategies to reduce the risk of spreading the virus, especially in public places where touchscreens have become almost indispensable at self-service kiosks, ATMs and vending machines.

The success achieved by the efforts of two institutions of the DST Department of the Government of India

Recently scientists from the Autonomous Institutes of Nano and Soft Matter Sciences (CENS) of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India and Jawaharlal Nehru Center for Advance and Scientific Research (JNCASR), Bengaluru, have developed Printing Aided Patterns (approximately 300 microns). Resolution) has set up a semi-automatic production plant for production of transparent electrodes that have the potential to be used in advanced touchless screen technologies.

How will the touch sensor work?

Professor G. You. The work, led by Kulkarni and colleagues and funded by the DST-Nano mission at CENS, was recently published in the journal Materials Letters.

The device can feel the touch even from a distance of 9 cm

Scientist working on this project Dr. Ashutosh K. “We have created a touch sensor which senses the touch of objects hovering near or even from a distance of 9 cm from the device,” Singh said.

Can also come in handy for other smart electronic applications

At present, work is being done to use this technology for other smart electronic applications. There are a few more prototypes being built using their patterned electrodes to prove their practicality for smart electronic applications. These patterned electrodes can be made available on request basis to interested industries and R&D laboratories to explore collaborative projects.

The new, low-cost patterned transparent electrodes have great potential for use in advanced smart electronic devices such as touchless screens and sensors. This touchless touch sensor technology can help prevent the spread of virus transmitted through contact.
