This project was requested by BOMBA to commission novel unit that will help BOMBA teams during public sanitation/disinfection activities using a method that is unique, swift, and efficient to stop the spread of COVID-19 is required especially in a large public area either internal or external of a building. Several requirements by BOMBA must be fulfilled to for an effective operation such as ability to spray disinfectant more than 3 metres and to create a finer mist of disinfectant (0.2 mm). Nevertheless, the most challenging one is that the prototype must be finished within 5 working days from the drawing board to the finished working prototype. This novel working prototype is currently the only one in BOMBA’s inventory and MOTECH UniMAP is very proud with the effort made as we managed to finish the prototype in time despite the travel restrictions and shops closures during the Movement Control Order. In short, this prototype has not only saved the cost, time and manpower required during sanitation/disinfection operations up to 60%, but also managed to optimize the resources of federal agencies of Malaysia. A bigger coverage area makes this prototype to be also beneficial for agricultural purpose such as a fertilizer sprayer.
