Abstract: Prevent spreading of COVID-19 is very critical to flatten the curve. Research has found that COVID-19 virus can transmit through public objects used by many people in similar fashion during the course of a day such as ATM keypad, Gas station keypad, self-checkout at grocery stores. Sanitizing keypad after every use is simply not feasible. So we need a technology which can help us operate the keypad without physically touching it. At the same time, we need to consider cost of new system or enhancement. Using Augmented Reality, we can impose virtual keypad on digital image at real time. There is no need for any additional hardware or camera to be installed. All we are talking about is mobile app powered by augmented reality.
