Two team members currently work at retail stores. They noticed that the mandatory COVID-19 screening process prior to their shift was often not conducted properly. COVID-19 screenings of each employee are also time consuming for managers and potentially dangerous if they come in contact with someone infected.
What it does
It allows associates to answer a series of questions to determine if they may have Covid-19. A sensor attached to any compatible device is then used to measure the temperature of the user. It is only when they are deemed “safe” that they are allowed to start their shift.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We had trouble establishing a database connection.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have managed to create a website from scratch that functions perfectly with no glitches and furthermore it uses a database as its source for stored information. We believe this is a website that can be used on a separate device and with its cheap price, small businesses can benefit from it and utilize it in their stores.
What we learned
This was the first hackathon for all four members of the team. We learned the importance of collaboration as well as the need to take a break and de-stress.
What's next for Covid Self-Assessment
- Extend its abilities to take more inputs such as visitor and customer temperature
- Improve the visual quality of the website
- Utilize a bigger database to store more data
