Students’ model: Students have developed a working prototype and model that can help reduce smog in front of vehicles to improve visibility. It has been developed at recently inaugurated Atal Tinkering Lab in Bhartiya Vidya Mandir, Udham Singh Nagar. Gurkirat Singh, Gautam, Arjun and Kriti say this mechanism can be fitted on vehicles and it can help improve visibility during smog, thus lowering the chances of accidents. “The mechanism works to reduce smog in front of moving vehicles. It has been fitted with powerful suction fans on two sides, that suck into the tubes smoggy air.The tubes contain loose cotton fibres and at the back the mechanism has ammonium chloride, which is a coolant and helps condense air into water droplets. Thus smog turns into water,” they said. The mentors for this project, Garry Agnihotri and Srikanth, said if the mechanism was fitted on a number of vehicles, it would help clear smog because the system not only helped improve visibility by sucking in smog, but also turned it into water. To prevent mishaps in low visibility, a vehicle can also be fitted with ultrasonic sensors, which sense any object in front and the vehicle stops automatically. Speaking about the project, Principal Bandana Sethi said the product would not cost more than Rs 25,000. It may go a long way to helping improve visibility and reduce smog-related accidents.
