India’s First Electronic Public Toilet
The infrastructure build-out in India is about modernizing highways, railways, telecom, ports, and power. But there is a very important and often overlooked element in the effort to create a better quality of life for citizens and tourists alike: The creation of an urban sanitation infrastructure.
Eram Scientific, a Social Enterprise, has taken on the challenge of addressing public sanitation by developing a product that is portable, hygienically maintained, and eco-friendly. eToilet is India's First Electronic Public Toilet.
eToilet incorporates full cycle approach in sustainable sanitation by integrating convergence of electronics, mechanical, web-mobile technologies thereby controlling entry, usage, cleaning, exit, and remote monitoring capabilities with multiple revenue options.
The insertion of a coin opens the door of the eToilet for the user, switches on a light—thus saving energy—and even directs the person with audio commands. The toilets are programmed to flush 1.5 liters of water after 3 minutes of usage or 4.5 liters if usage is longer. It can also be programmed to clean the platform with a complete wash down after every 5 or 10 persons use the toilet.
|Till date, 500+ eToilet units and over 200 Sewage Treatments Plants have been set up across India. eToilet has won over 30 awards nationally and internationally.|
