Therefore, we have to make sure all the committee members present are fit and healthy, “said the Head Officer of ILITS, Auliansyah Rizki Teknikade.

The i-nose c-19 detection process is done by taking a sample of someone’s axillary sweat odor, after which the sample is obtained, the odor will be converted into an electrical signal and then is classified by artificial intelligence (AI).

It is also a pride to use a detection tool created by our own nation, “concluded the student from Jogja. (rys/nadh/ITS Public Relations)
