Automatic Sanitizer Sprayer by M Auto
M Auto Pride Pvt Ltd has launched ‘M Auto Corona Robo’, an Automatic Sanitizer Sprayer, on May 20. Launched by the Minister of Health, Dr.C.Vijayabaskar, with GCC Commissioner Prakash IAS, Dr.J.Radhakrishnan, IAS, Principal Secretary/Commissioner, Revenue Administration, Disaster Management and Mitigation, and Mansoor Ali Khan, Managing Director, M Auto, the vehicle was given to the Greater Chennai Corporation for spraying disinfectant in containment areas.
The design includes an electric auto carrying two robots to spray disinfectants in the streets. Each robot has a capacity of 30 litres. A video tab that plays audios/videos about COVID-19 is attached to the robot's head. The robot can spray disinfectant from all sides and is designed in a way that it can be used in smaller spaces that are inaccessible for sanitation workers.
He added, “Our aim is to come up with inventions that create a social impact, with good technology. We are one of the pioneers in bringing retrofit electric autos; converting old fuel autos to electric ones to cut down carbon dioxide emission. Also these autos are driven by women drivers to promote women empowerment.”
Previously, M Auto came with an initiative to help auto drivers by modifying the vehicles to sell fruits and vegetables. M Auto vehicles were also used for transportation purposes by voluntary groups and charity organisations that are reaching out to the poor and needy during the COVID-19 lockdown.
