Project Explaination

No matter where I go these days, I see either security guards, staff or teachers waiting outside of the premises to remind visitors to wash their hands, to ask COVID-19 related questions and make sure they are wearing a facemask before entering. This put the staff at risk as well as add extra work load.

What if we get a robot to do this? they don’t get sick and they follow orders.

Wait no more! CODIE-19 is here to Beat the pandemic with A.I. – Smart Robot powered by Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing to Safeguard School Children from the Covid-19 Pandemic by detecting and enforcing health guidelines.

Codie-19, the smart robot can interact with people and ensure that they follow Covid-19 health guidelines before they enter School, Classroom or any other premises. Powered by Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning, it can detect people who are not wearing a face mask and dispense masks to them if needed. Voice recognition and Text to speech capabilities makes it ideal for human interaction.

How it works:

  • It detects if someone is at the entrance using ultrasonic sensors
  • Then it uses Face Detection to check if a human is in front of the camera
  • Then it wakes up from the sleep and greet the visitor
  • Using Text to speech, It asks the visitor if he has washed their hands or not. Then asks if he has any of the COVID-19 symptoms
  • It recognizes visitors response using Voice Recognition
  • If visitor has not followed anyof the health guidelines, it asks them to complete them and return
  • If all is good, Using Machine learning, it detects if the visitor is wearing a face mask or not
  • If visitor is not wearing a face mask, it asks him whether he needs a mask or not
  • If the response is yes, then it will dispense a face mask to the visitor
  • It remind the visitor wear the mask and enter the premises

Things I used to build CODIE-19:

  • Laptop
  • Pictoblox
  • Teachable Machine Image Model (trained with many images from the internet as well as my own)
  • Evive
  • Ultrasonic sensor
  • Extra motor and Wheel
  • Coil made from aluminium wire (to dispense masks – vending machine mechanism)
  • External monitor (to display face animation – i used my tab to mirror screen)
  • Webcam
  • Cardboard (used the old box that the refrigerator came in)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Bluetooth speaker
