The researchers had targeted on the convenience of deployment of such a tool in distant locations and curbing the price through the use of cheap and simply accessible {hardware} supplies, he stated.

Students have give you the gadget leveraging readily-available {hardware} whereas the lockdown was in place, the spokesperson stated.

The system has been efficiently examined by putting in three prototypes of the gadget throughout the IIT-Kharagpur campus.
