Lately, sanitising hands is required for people before entering a building
but due to manual hand sanitiser, not all the customers will sanitise their hands before
entering a building. Thus, the development of a system self-sanitising door handle
allows people to open the door while keeping their hands and the surface of the door
handle clean where the self-sanitising door handle can operate manually or
automatically. This thesis covers the details of the theory and working principles of
the self-sanitising door handle. This thesis explains and discusses the methods of
developing a self-sanitising door handle using Tinkercad Simulation and Arduino
Uno. Furthermore, the operation of the self-sanitising door handle is presented in this
thesis. The experimental data and simulation results are all provided and discussed.
Both self-sanitising door handle prototype experimental results and simulation in
Tinkercad results have been recorded and compared. In conclusion, the theoretical
results are supported by the experimental and simulation results.
