How To Make Automatic Hand Sanitizer using Arduino ARDUINO PROJECTS by Jeevan - January 6, 2021April 29, 202110 Hello creators, well i know many have been waiting for this project, finally i will be showing you How to make automatic hand sanitizer using Arduino. As i have already made video tutorial on How to make touchless hand wash dispenser using arduino nano, after that tutorial many asked me to make same project using arduino Uno Here i will show u Both ways, Make sure to check out video which is provided at End of this article 1)How to make Automatic hand sanitizer machine using Arduino Uno automatic hand sanitizer project using Arduino Uno 2)How to make automatic hand sanitizer machine using arduino nano Contactless hand sanitizer dispensing machine made using sensor Well both of these automatic hand sanitizer dispenser follows almost same mechanism, Here the purpose of using arduino nano and arduino uno is many enthusiast either have ARDUINO UNO but not ARDUINO NANO or in other way round! Materials required for Arduino Hand wash Dispenser Empty sanitizer bottle Arduino Uno, Ultrasonic sensor HC-SR and Micro servoJumper wires, MDF Wood, Hot glue and Pieces of wireArduino IDE and Cable to upload program NameBuy in IndiaBuy in USAArduino UNOhttps://amzn.to/3kbjZL2https://amzn.to/3buKSoWMicro Servohttps://amzn.to/3uj9fyHhttps://amzn.to/3pF5i3YUltrasonic sensorhttps://amzn.to/3qFwf8Jhttps://amzn.to/2NjCLUwJumper wires and Breadboardhttps://amzn.to/3qHY406https://amzn.to/2OPKmu6Part list Disclosure: These are affiliate links.

Connect power to Board, wave your hand or just bring your hand closer to ultrasonic sensor Ultrasonic sensor sends signals to board which later is sent to micro servo Not only hand objects but are detected and responded, it even responds to object which is an obstacle for signal transferred Micro servo rotates at some angle This rotation causes shaft movement which in turn pulls the wire that is connected to hand wash pushing part. As a result hand wash/sanitizer comes out Time of response along with distance at which ultrasonic sensor should detect obstacles can be altered in code I have added instructions in code on how to alter That was all about automatic hand sanitizer project using ARDUINO UNO, Now we will make same arduino projects using ARDUINO NANO Materials Required All the materials remain same for this project except here only major change being ARDUINO NANO and Breadboard used Contactless hand sanitizer Circuit Diagram Arduino Nano Circuit diagram Please follow the diagram above to make circuit connections Once the circuit built as shown in image upload code to board using Arduino IDE Copy and paste the code later change any parameters if you want and later upload Code for hand sanitizer project Arduino Nano hand sanitizer codeDownload After the code gets upload to board, Make few trials to check if everything works fine, Once everything built it’s difficult to check for error points Mechanism For this Arduino project using nano How to make automatic sanitizer spray machine using arduino Steps Using Hot glue stick servo to Sanitizer bottle body later Make 2 holes as shown in image Insert piece of wire into these holes End of these wire will be connected to micro servo shaft Once this is complete using hot glue attach HC-SR04 To one side as in image You can keep it on other places too, since my place is effective kept over in position I coupled rest of components to back side using hot glue, it was easy as everything was in breadboard Later supply power I prefer to use rechargeable batteries later Pre-check if mechanism is working, once it is confirmed Fill your container with soap/sanitizer then Power it up Bring your hand close to sensor, use the dispensed liquid effectively and stay healthy! Video link For automatic Arduino dispenser Watch video tutorial Here Advantages from both projects Easy to make Arduino projectsInexpensive contactless dispenser Creative project for science fair Disadvantages No disadvantages! That was all about these Arduino projects, Hope you enjoyed the idea, if you have any queries let me know in the comments box, Suggestion for improvements are always welcome.
