Telkom University Makes Chamber for Cars

BANDUNG, Telkom University – In anticipation of the spread of Covid-19, Telkom University through the Tel-U Covid-19 Task Force prepared various preventive measures, one of which was by creating a Chamber Car which was placed at the entrance of Telkom University.

With the presence of this Chamber Car adding COVID-19 prevention procedures in the Tel-U environment, where Tel-U has established a visit procedure that every visitor is required to check body temperature at the entrance, filling in a health card, and through the Chamber Car for vehicles, in addition that Tel-U has also provided a handsanitizer in every building.

The Chamber Car has been completed by a team from Muhammad Ary Murti who is a lecturer at the Telkom University’s Electrical Engineering Faculty, a team from the IoT Research Center, and several students are also involved. This tool began to be implemented as of April 3, 2020 at gate 3 (Rector) of Telkom University.

Ary told the production process that lasted for 1 week since the idea was decided, Ary and the team started by designing the product as well as picking up knock down materials, to create an automatic system.

“The obstacle at the time of the production process is that we have difficulty getting raw materials during this pandemic, so we choose to buy raw materials online where it takes several days, because if buying directly to the store is very risky today, although there are some goods which must be bought in stores like a skeleton. ” He said.

Ary explained that this tool has an automatic working system, where this tool will automatically turn on when the car enters the Chamber by means of an infrared sensor will detect the car when entering and exiting.

“So this tool works automatically, when the car enters the sensor will detect and spray disinfectant liquid and when the car exits the tool will automatically die, and when the car enters the Chamber the car does not need to stop just walking slowly so as to avoid the queues of vehicles there.” He said.

In addition, Ary added that this tool can also be set using a timer, so that if there is a car that accidentally stopped in the chamber, survived for a few seconds, the tool will automatically turn off.

Through this tool, Ary and the team hope to be able to help the government in preventing Covid-19 within Telkom University, so that in the future all academicians can work comfortably.

“We hope this tool can also be implemented throughout corporate or hospital gates with sufficient traffic every day, so that it helps to sterilize the environment.” He said.
