Ukrainian schoolchildren have developed a “smart” mask – it will help in the fight against COVID-19

Ukrainian schoolchildren from YOVi team from Dnipro presented a unique project “Smart mask”. It can help get rid of the need to test for coronavirus in laboratories.

According to UNIAN, the mask is equipped with sensors that monitor respiratory frequency, pulse rate and body temperature.

In this case, external sensors measure temperature, air pollution and humidity. Through the Bluetooth, all data are received by the mobile application.

As one of the developers Maria Kalinichenko told, the idea of such a mask appeared while the team was thinking about how to help overcome COVID-19.

“Team member Artem Kiselev suggested the idea of a smart mask. Of course, only school knowledge would not be enough to implement such a large-scale project, because we do not even have such subjects in Ukraine,” – said Maria.

Together with such a development young talents want to take part in the world competitions in robotics – FIRST Robotics Competition, which will be held in the United States.
