In America, no one will dare urinate in the elevator anymore
There will be no more problems with urinating in the elevator. Massachusetts is testing urine detection sensors to be placed on four downtown elevators. The pilot project will be implemented this summer.
The sensors will identify through the smell when someone has urinated. This is helped by the fans that will be placed on the ceiling.
This project is not something new. The world has long been trying to figure out how to sim when someone urinates in the elevator. It is not only unhygienic, but also impairs the operation of elevators.
Nearly a decade ago, the Atlanta Metropolitan Rapid Transit Authority launched a pilot program that, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, triggered lights and alarms to then notify police that someone had urinated in an elevator.
The same sensors did not make cleaning possible. The latter will be able to carry out the cleaning as well.
