Abstract

Currently, the world is threatened by risky outbreak of COVID019 which is also known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. It is still spreading to many countries in the world and infects numerous people. It shows presently a large environmental obstruction jointly with absence with powerful remedy and effective vaccination. The transmission of COVID-19 coronavirus showed an easily outbreak from individual to individual through direct contact. The droplets contained within the sneezing and coughing play as a source of virus spreading. They are characterized by survive in air and on inanimate surface that make them as effective transmitters of coronavirus. Thus, the infection by such virus produced a big challenge to find efficient antiviral procedure through establishing innovative methods to prevent outbreak of virus that traditional techniques could not overcome. The goal of the current study is to design a disinfection spraying system based on IoT with robotics technology. The issues came from the high velocity stream as well as long-time sprinkling were addressed through developing a sprayer with fluid-gas mix structure. The developed system is supplied with optical camera for spraying tracking task. Based on these circumstances, the performance of the robot was tested. It is capable to disinfect large areas with low time and less aid by operators.
