A smart version of public lavatory has been installed across Chengdu city, southwest China’s Sichuan Province, unveiling a new possibility to the whole industry to improve the sanitation status quo both home and abroad.
A smart toilet was established outside a metro entrance near one of Chengdu’s thoroughfares, which is empowered by smart technology, fitting in perfectly downtown.
"It’s not commonly seen in our daily life and work; I just went in and it’s different from the traditional lavatories because it’s neither dirty nor smelly. To me, it’s a great experience." Said Hu Li, Resident in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.
There’s much more to the booth than being just a public toilet in a busy business district, because it also offers power bank rentals, drinks from a vending machine, and temporary lockers.
A total of 50 units of such kind of booth called "Easy Station" have been installed across the high-tech District of Chengdu city. Industry insiders say the demand for the kind of smart lavatories are rising sharply in and beyond the city because of its movable and intelligent technology.
Up to now, operators say the number of public lavatories per square kilometer is only 4.3 in the district, a figure falling short to the goal of 6.25 per square kilometers, which was set in the nation’s plan for the next several years.
"In a mega-city like Chengdu, the number of lavatories comes short of the national standard. We establishes them at populated areas such as thoroughfares, green land and amusement parks in our city. In times of the COVID-19 epidemic, we added some new features such as face scanning and temperature checking," said Niu Bo, Deputy Chief, Ecological Environment and Urban Management Bureau of High-tech Area, Chengdu City.
Niu said that those public lavatories converted the ecological value to the economic one, as they put in place the profitable products such as the billboards, the shared power banks and unmanned retail machines. These features reduce the government spending, making the smart toilet a sustainable model.
“在成都這樣的特大城市，廁所數量達不到國家標準。我們在城市的街道、綠地和遊樂園等人口稠密的地區建立它們。在 新冠 流行期間，我們添加了一些新功能，例如面部掃描和體溫檢查，”成都市高新區生態環境與城管局副局長牛波說。
