The CoVID-19 pandemic has affected most people and businesses. Grocery stores were one of the select few that were allowed to remain open to help feed millions of Canadians. But to ensure that people didn't get sick while shopping, grocery stores had to implement COVID-19 protocols such as ensuring customers maintain 2 meters distance and sanitize shopping carts/baskets before every use. Managers had to assign more employees to focus on applying COVID-19 protocols than do their regular jobs. This led to increased expenses while still having human errors in cleaning the baskets. Our team at SaniTech is introducing a new technology to address this issue. B-Clean is a smart machine that sanitizes the shopping baskets in grocery stores. The device is designed in a way to first recognize baskets sizes as they enter and then while they are given to the machine in a stack form it will rotate them and separate them one by one. Each basket then will get sanitized separately and finally they go through a ramp to come down one by one as a stack like it was given initially.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
