Title: Development of Smart and Powered Anti Infection Face Mask

Abstract: The COVID-19 virus, which emerged at the end of 2019 had affected the whole world and had different effects in many areas. One of these areas was respiratory protective equipment technologies. In normal, masks are products that are mostly used in environments where there is a factor such as gas, smoke, or dust that threatens to breathe. Due to the airborne transmission of the COVID-19 virus, masks were used in all areas of human interaction during the epidemic period. As the use of masks became widespread, there was feedback about the products and it was revealed that these products had deficiencies and aspects to be improved. In this study, the deficiencies of the mask products that came to light during the COVID-19 epidemic period and the aspects that can be improved were examined and a smart and powered respiratory protective half-face mask was developed that can be a solution to these problems. The mask produced has two electronic fans and can be controlled via the mobile application by Bluetooth connection. In this way, the user can supplement the filtered clean air into the mask when necessary. In addition, the air evacuated outside the mask is filtered and then given to the environment. As a result, the problems related to mask products that emerged during the COVID-19 epidemic were resolved with the developed mask.

Özet: 2019 yılının sonunda ortaya çıkan ve tüm dünyayı etkisi altına alan COVID-19 virüsünün birçok alanda farklı etkileri olmuştur. Bu alanlardan biri solunumu koruyucu ekipman teknolojileri olmuştur. Normal şartlarda maskeler çoğunlukla solunumu tehdit eden gaz, duman veya toz gibi bir etkenin olduğu ortamlarda kullanılan ürünler olmuşlardır. COVID-19 virüsünün hava yoluyla bulaşması sebebi ile salgın dönemi içerisinde insan etkileşimin olduğu her alanda maskeler kullanılmıştır. Maske kullanımı yaygınlaştıkça insanlarda ürünlerle ile ilgili geri dönüşler olmuş ve bu ürünlerin eksiklikleri ve geliştirilecek yönleri olduğu ortaya çıkmıştır. Bu çalışmada COVID-19 salgını sürecinde gün yüzüne çıkan maske ürünlerinin eksikleri ve geliştirilebilecek yönleri incelenmiş ve bu sorunlara çözüm olabilecek akıllı ve güç destekli solunumu koruyucu yarım yüz maskesi geliştirilmiştir. Üretilmiş olan maske iki adet elektronik fana sahip olup, Bluetooth bağlantısı aracılığı ile mobil uygulama üzerinden kontrol edilebilir. Bu sayede kullanıcı gerekli durumlarda maske içerisine filtrelenmiş temiz hava takviyesi yapabilmektedir. Ayrıca maske dışarısına tahliye edilen hava da filtrelenerek ortama verilmektedir. Sonuç olarak COVID-19 salgını sürecinde ortaya çıkan maske ürünleri ile ilgili problemler geliştirilen maske ile çözüme kavuşturulmuştur.
