This automatic sterilization gate tool is a simple tool that changes the manual method to a systemized and more efficient way. This tool uses an infrared motion sensor in which there is a main component, namely the PIR (Pyroelectric Infra-Red) sensor, which is a material that reacts to radiation and movement in front of it. This tool also uses a 12v dc pump which is used to draw out the disinfectant liquid stored in the container. This gate tool is designed using the main material and some additional materials, the automatic gate can discharge about 11 seconds of liquid from objects or people that pass through the sensor range, 11 seconds is the minimum time for this tool to work while a distance of 6 meters is the range from where the sensor is located. From that time it proved that this gate tool has 100% accuracy and runs well. This gate tool is used every day, turned on from the morning, and turned off at night. Every 17.00 hours this gate tool is always replenished with supplies of disinfectant liquid. The automatic gate has helped the community to reduce the risk of transmission of the coronavirus, it also raises the awareness of the covid-19 pandemic. The whole system is implemented and is tested for real-time operation. It is found working satisfactorily. The gate tool can be further improved by adding a scanning device to perform tracing for passersby.
