We were inspired by the Covid-19 pandemic which has come to influence many aspects of our lives. With the recent release of the Covid vaccine, we realized that there currently doesn't exist a proper identification or proof of vaccination besides little pieces of paper. We decided to combat this issue by developing a mobile application that serves as a passport for vaccinated people. After starting the development of the app, we realized that we could implement contact tracing and crowd control using RFID and Cloud technology. By doing so, we would be able to control future pandemics.

What it does

Our app verifies user safety and relays the information to hospitals or businesses managing large crowds.

How we built it

Our solution utilizes and integrates android-studio with firebase database technology along with a web-based application to enable users to log in, verify their vaccine information, and track their history location. We implemented an Arduino system using an RFID and ESP chip to integrate IoT.

Challenges we ran into

Integrating the hardware with Firebase.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Making a working product that can truly benefit many lives.

What we learned

That cloud technology can be used to manage a large number of people.

What's next for Community Health

We hope to contact data scientists and hospitals for their professional advice on how to better our app.
