VIRAJ-Pure- An IoT enabled automatic mold & mildew / fungus detection device in public health spaces With modern constructions that have false ceilings, wall paper, carpeting, ACs, purifiers, etc., unseen mold growth can lead to serious health problems. The proposed solution aims at identifying existing/rapidly developing mold & mildew in public health spaces in real time, with an IoT enabled solution. This novel approach will save thousands of lives of immunocompromised patients and alleviate chronic respiratory illnesses and allergies in millions.
By providing early warnings, it will also prevent mold-induced sickness and loss of precious work days among medical and support staff in public/private health spaces. Further, using the solution’s analytics, predictive maintenance can be carried out, thereby arresting the otherwise exponential growth of mold throughout the building.
