The University of Lapland have developed the CleanLeaf table concept, that indicates if the table has been used and requires cleaning, as a measure in reducing the spread of Covid- 19. The table senses when it has been used using PIR sensors mounted underneath the table and is reset after cleaning by using an RFID tag on a reader that is located under the surface of the table in its center. The design utilises the red electrochromic ink developed in the DecoChrom project in a dual colour red/blue display. A blue display indicated the table is clean and a red that it has been in use and requires cleaning. To ensure a practically usable table surface, the table surface has been encapsulated in epoxy resin).
