In this drastic situation, this system can help people protect themselves even when they are outside.
In this article, you will be guided through designing a system that can remind you about social distancing.
With the significant increase in the cases of Covid-19, social distancing has become very important. This epidemic situation may keep on getting worst without social distancing. To tackle this situation, the Social Distancing Reminder System can be proved beneficial to keep the distance between each other.
Step 1: Things You Need
Make sure to purchase all the necessary components to make this project. Here is the list of components:
- Arduino Nano - 1
- Ultrasonic sensor - 2
- Female buck pin
- Universal PCB
- Soldering iron
- Soldering wire
You need to ultrasonic sensors to cover the front and rear areas. Make sure to keep the distance from the front and rear as well. For that reason, two ultrasonic sensors are used here. We prefer Universal PCB over Breadboard for a social distancing reminder system.
Step 2: Schematic Diagram
Step 3: Code
Once you have made the connections according to the circuit diagram, copy the code from GitHub and paste in on the application of the Arduino. For that purpose, connect the Arduino to the computer using a USB cable.
Step 4: Testing of the Project
Run the code given above to test the project. You may wonder where to place this system to let it serve the social distancing purpose. Keep in mind that you have to place this project on your body so that you could keep the social distance while going outside. Using Tape, place the first ultrasonic on the front side of your body and the second on the rear side.
In testing the social distancing reminder system, whenever you get close to someone, the buzzer will turn ON to remind you about the distancing. In this way, you can help yourself to tackle the Covid-19 epidemic. This project is easy to make and very useful these days.
