eToilet – India’s first automatic, unmanned, electronic public toilet.

2.5 billion people are currently living without a toilet;
That’s 2.5 billion reasons to start talking & acting on sanitation!

 That is the motto of Eram Scientific Solutions Pvt ltd, which developed an India specific sanitation concept that they very aptly called the eToilet .

Imagine that you have stopped enroute a fascinating drive for a toilet break in the late evening. You have found this location mapped on your GPRS. You find a stainless steel futuristic looking box that says  ‘e Toilet’. You walk up. There is a display light outside the toilet unit, which shows the unit is ‘Unoccupied’ indicating it with a Green light. There is a sign that says ‘Insert coin’. You inset a coin and the door automatically unlocks to reveal a gleaming, well-lit interior.

Upon entering the toilet, indoor lights and fan switch on automatically. Pre-flush system wets the closet initially to ensure cleanliness. You finish your business and a signage prompts you to flush manually. Even if you forget to flush after usage, you are sure the system will automatically flush after you exit.
