Özet: In this study, a system solution for monitoring and coordinating indoor disinfection processes based on the Internet of Things technology is presented. Studies about COVID-19 shows that novel coronavirus is spreading through the virus-containing droplets exhaled by infected people on the surfaces; moreover, it is shown that the virus can remain stable up to 72 hours depending on the type of surface. Therefore, proper sterilization and disinfection routines in public areas play a major role in reducing the spread of coronavirus. In the proposed conceptual system, IoT nodes, consisting of single-board computer and camera, separate the human density in certain regions into various levels through image processing algorithms and write these densities in a cloud database. An Android application reads data from the cloud database periodically and locates the risky areas on the map. When the sterilization staff disinfects the specified spots, his/her location is determined in the android application via Bluetooth beacons located in the area, and the database is updated to show that disinfection is complete in these areas.
