This is one of the many tests we did. Testing our sensor with alcohol. In this case, beer.

This test is done using wine

We had gotten several questions about if our breathalyzer would prevent the car from starting if the driver was wearing perfume or had just cleaned their hands with hand sanitizer. So we decided to test our sensor using different household items that contain alcohol. In this video, we tested hand sanitizer.

This test is with body spray.

The final test is with mouthwash.
