survey about a new automatic door opener

Hi, I am a 4th year mechanical engineering student looking to design and fabricate a new automatic door opener for interior doors. The device will include two parts: a mechanism to open and close the door, and a mechanism to unlatch the door (effectively, to turn the door handle). I would like to build a device that does not require any manipulation of the door or the home (such as changing the handle or screwing something to the wall.

I was hoping for some insight through this quick survey- all data is completely anonymous unless you choose to provide your email and will not be used for anything but my project!

here is the survey:

also, if you have any concerns/comments/suggestions please let me know!

thank you!
