Hands-Free Mask Disposal

During COVID-19, one of the biggest questions households are asking is “how can we protect our homes from the spread of COVID-19?” One of the ways that COVID-19 can spread within an otherwise clean and isolated household is by touching items that were used outside, such as a used face mask for disposal reasons, and then immediately touching other household items before sanitizing their hands. Using a color sensor to Identify a mask, a light indicator to show the machine’s state, a robotic arm and hand with micro motor controlled movements, and a disposal mechanism, users can take their hands off their masks and limit their contact with the outside world.
