A smart system for early detection of Coronavirus
After a month of study and planning, a specialized Jordanian team reached a sophisticated, Smart System for early detection, warning, and control to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Coronavirus has spread globally it had affected the lives of many people in many ways and it had to take the life of many others. The result of social distancing and quarantine has had a major negative shake on the economy. Many businesses have been closed for months and that has brought with it a lot of struggle for many people. It will take a while before a vaccine is created and during that time we found an alternative method to help people keep track of the virus and to stay healthy.
The creation of this new technology came about when Engineer Mohammad Al-Wedyan, a specialist in mechatronics and the founder and owner of Spark Company for E-Innovation and Robotics, received a phone call about a month ago from the director of the Studies and Consultation Center at Al-Hussein Bin Talal University, Professor Mohammad Al-Farajat, who specializes in Water Geology and Geophysics and the Environment. The discussion between the two took place on how to create a system that can detect coronavirus virus in the air and how to treat and the contaminate the air. They discussed linking it with a preventive system to how the virus can be quickly controlled especially, in places such as hospitals, airports, shopping centers, places of worship, institutions, and places of gatherings.
Eng. Al Wedyan added that several experts have been recruited by Professor Al-Farajat to complete all the stages of the assignment some of these experts are in the fields of Molecular Microbiology, Pharmacy, Air and Environmental Engineering, Public Safety, Analytical Chemistry and Environment, Geographic Information Systems and Remote sensing. The team of experts includes Engineer Mohammad Wedyan, Dr. Suhaila Ali Al-Shboul from Jordan University of Science and Technology, Professor Muhammad Sanad Abu Darwish, President of the Aqaba University of Technology, Dr. Muhannad Musaad from Al Al-Bayt University and Director of the Center for Research and Central Laboratories for Water and Environmental Analysis, and the engineer and expert Samer Malkawi, and GIS Specialist Saed Abu Sunainah. Eng. AL Wedyan stated that the system can be designed and assembled with its various electronic units on the ground to operate according to computerized inputs and special software codes for tracking, monitoring, control, and air treatment; however, the system would only work with wireless connectivity. Eng. Al wedyan added that the team will promote and market the system globally and will do a contract with any entity that adopts its implementation and manufacturing for its high cost.
The team is willing to convert the complex design software codes into devices that work for everyone. The team has commissioned engineer Al Wedyan through Spark Electronics, to follow up on matters regarding the project technically and administratively, with the implementation of the university law to which the team member belongs to.
