In view of current pandemic covid testing plays a key role in fighting the pandemic. Covid teting is done in covid testing booths that provide a safe covid testing environment. Now the testing process involves the following steps
- Registering the person name, contact no address manually
- Taking a swab sample of the person
- Adding the swab sample number against the persons registered details
- Sending the data along with the samples to the lab
- Manually informing (calling/sms) the patient about the result
Now this is a very long process with a lot of manual steps which can lead to human errors because of huge amount of samples coming in for testing. So here we propose a system whereby we automate around 70 % of the manual entry work and allow for a single point and fast covid testing system using IOT.
Our system consists of a camera and speaker combination powered by a raspberry pi based controller and operating circuitry. We hereby use a keypad and button interfaced with the controller for test person ease.
The system totally isolates the test person from the user and also makes the process fast and error free by automating registration process too.
With the new system the testing process works as follows:
- No need for separate registration, the system uses camera for instant aadhar card scan registration.
- The Test person enters the sample number of the person from inside the booth using provided keypad.
- The system uses speaker to inform patient that his test is done and next person to come forward.
- The data collected by the time is transferred over to Lab using IOT automatically before next person comes ahead.
- The lab incharge can view the no of samples tested in real time and can update sample test results too on IOT server.
- When lab incharge updates test result of a sample, an sms is instantly sent to the respective person by the system itself.
Thus we fully automate the Covid booth testing process, making it faster, safer and error free to help fight the pandemic in a better manner.
