    Speaking about the launch, Mr. Rajashekar Papolu, Managing Director, Brihaspathi Technologies, said “Corona has brought so many changes in our daily lives. Going to a public place has become a major challenge. Places like Metro stations, Bus stations, Railway stations, Offices, etc. needs to be monitored and disinfect every person, along with the article carried. It’s a herculean challenge as one need to install so many machines for each function. COVIPRO is the answer for all these problems. We have priced COVIPRO at Rs. 45,000 and making it available across India in 30 days. We have an objective of selling 10,000 devices in next 100 days.”

    How COVIPRO works:

    When a person goes to COVIPRO kiosk, his face is recognized with the help of an 8-megapixel camera. Body temperature is recorded with the medical-grade temperature scanner, where the daily temperatures are recorded for future tracking. If the temperature is abnormal, it makes a beep sound and alerts control room with the person’s photograph. If the temperature is normal, then the machine will prompt the person to put his hands at the automatic hand sanitizer which has 5 liters of sanitizer capacity. Six millimeter nozzle pumps out mist. After that, the door of the UV disinfection chamber opens automatically. User can keep his articles like laptop, mobile, wallet, etc for UV Sanitization. This process is done in 15 seconds per person. The cloud-based platform will be helpful to track visitors and can send alerts immediately to the master control room.
