School of Engineering and Technology Walailak University congratulations to Assoc. Prof. Dr. Wattanapong Kerdthongmee, Lecturer of Computer Engineering and Artificial Intelligence Received a patent for intellectual property in the category of “Petty Hand Touching Device”, an innovation that reduces the behavior of touching the user’s hand and reducing the risk. To get germs into the body through the nose, mouth and eyes, this device is portable and can work independently.
During the epidemic situation of the coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19 continues to spread and is at an untrustworthy level. Many agencies, both the government and the private sector, are mobilizing to research, create innovations, inventions, use them to solve problems and prevent the spread of the virus.
Wattanapong Kerdthongmee has the following expertise: Design and construction of control systems and research support tools using microcontrollers/microprocessors. System design and construction using FPGA/CPLD chips using VHDL language. Developing computer algorithms for synthesis of basic images and rendering algorithms (CSG). Developing computer algorithms for control applications. System using microcontrollers (Process Control), simulating the operation of robots using microcomputers, Computer Interfacing, etc. The professor has mentioned the origin of the invention. “Hand-touch warning device” that the main channels for germs, both viral and bacterial enter the body, are the nose, mouth and eyes. Generally, germs will pass through these channels by touching the palm of the hand. intention and caused by negligence This is the reason why innovations have been invented. “A warning device for bringing your hand to your face” This device processes the movement of the hands into the face area. and a sound is sent to alert users This alert has resulted in reducing the user’s hand-touching behavior and reducing the risk of germs entering the body through the nose, mouth and eyes. The invention is portable and works independently. Because it is a device that does not rely on computers for processing. Do not use a video camera to capture images. Supports installation for use with users of various ages. and a wide variety of activities Do not use a video camera to capture images. Supports installation for use with users of various ages. and a wide variety of activities Do not use a video camera to capture images. Supports installation for use with users of various ages. and a wide variety of activities

or the working principle of “Hand-to-face warning device” is processed to read the distance of objects moving into the face. through an infrared distance sensor. The result of processing that indicates the movement of the hand closer to the face leads to the sound of a warning being sent through a small speaker. This will result in users reducing or avoiding touching their faces. And resulting in cutting the cycle of germs, both viruses and bacteria into the body. through hand contact through the nose, mouth and eyes.
