Design and Development of COVID-19 Automated UV Object Disinfection Cabinet

Highly infectious COVID-19 has had widespread effects on Canadian and global health, security, and economy. While vaccines play a key role in preventing viral diseases, various measures should be taken to slow their spread. Among preventative measures, disinfection systems are of paramount importance to battle COVID-19. The objective of this project is to design and build an automated confined cabinet for object disinfection using ultraviolet germicidal irradiation.This smart cabinet would be able to detect objects, measure their sizes and adjust UV rate accordingly in a short time to make it a good candidate for major online retailers distributing hundreds of thousands of items daily.
