Corona Virus is affecting all of our lives right now. We COULD go out and interact with other people, but we are limited due to our fear of getting infected. This app helps prevent you from interacting with someone who is infected by tracing who they have contacted and checking if they were infected with corona virus.
What it does
This app essentially enables you to keep track of who you have interacted with recently and if they are infected with coronavirus or have been exposed to it. If anyone you have interacted with has been infected, it notifies you and tells you to isolate yourself as to not expose anyone else. This can be useful in the next coming months due to the lifting of lockdown and spread of coronavirus. You can keep yourself from being exposed to the virus by using this app.
How I built it
I used android studio and java to make this app.
Challenges I ran into
I had to learn how to use android studio in a week and build this app on my own.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learning how to build an entire app with android studio in 1 week.
What's next for COVID-19 Contact Tracing
I was planning to use the camera for this app and implement a personal QR code for each account that could be scanned instead of searching for them. However, with respect to time, I was not able to implement this feature. I also considered using facial recognition in the camera to identify people with accounts.
