Do you worry about catching diseases from door handles when you drive or ride in a car? No need to panic, Toyota has stepped in.
In recent news, Toyota has invented a door handle that can kill bacteria and viruses, which the company has named “Car door handle disinfection system” 。
The patent, which is understood to have been filed by Toyota in June 2020 and not officially issued until January 24 of this year, describes an idea that perfectly fits its name: theSaid vehicle door handle disinfection system includes a special nozzle connected to a disinfectant dispenser that automatically sprays cleaning material onto the outer surface of the door handle for the purpose of disinfection。
The purpose of all this is simple: by keeping door handles clean, drivers no longer have to worry about getting viruses and bacteria on their hands when they enter the car.
The technology can be further enhanced with more advanced solutions, such as sensors integrated into the handle that let the system know when it needs to spray the disinfectant material again, either after it detects someone using it or after it becomes dirty. Additional components, such as warning lights, could also be installed to let the driver know when the disinfectant needs to be replenished.
I have to say, the idea of this patent is quite good, and also very simple to achieve, but some users have seen the summary that.Can, but it is not necessary, the real technology tree point skewed。
