Sneeze detector / electronic device

Sneeze detector
Sneeze detector

During these pandemic days, there is a fear of entering small public places such as elevators & toilets because someone might have sneezed or coughed short before.
we designed a product that has an Infrared camera to detect the presence of people inside the elevator and a microphone which is sensitive to the sound of sneezing and coughing. In normal situation, the device shows green color. As soon as someone enters the elevator, the product turns into yellow which means caution, and if someone has sneezed or coughed, it shows red. In yellow and red situation, the device turns the ventilation on to get rid of infectious particles.
