The biggest challenge with COVID-19 is ensuring the QUARANTINED cases are STAYING ISOLATED.
The RISK is some of them START MOVING OUT and starts spreading to community, which leads to exponential COMMUNITY SPREAD and becomes unstoppable.
The best solution to avoid community spread is to ensure the quarantined people STAY ISOLATED by GEO-FENCING
To TRACK PERSON NEARBY and STAY SAFE & away from Quarantined Person
What it does
We provide an inexpensive innovative solution using advanced technology to track and monitor the Quarantined cases and ensure that they are STAYING ISOLATED
How we built it
With a team of 5 Engineers, including Software Embedded Developer, Hardware & Android/iOS Developer, we built a Smart Wristband and mobile application developed by Unizen to connect essential health services with the global people in our combined fight against COVID-19. Quarantine connected with Smart Wristband & Mobile App enables a host of features like Live Tracking, Geo-fencing, Cross-Paths with Quarantine, Reports & Monitoring. App is aimed at augmenting the initiatives with Government of India, particularly the Department of Health, in proactively reaching out to and informing the users of the App regarding risks, best practices and relevant advisories pertaining to the containment of COVID-19.
Challenges we ran into
BoM optimization for Smart Wrist Band components Adapting App for best user performance Variety of Operating Systems Usability / Limited Users to test Communication
Accomplishments that we're proud of
First-of-kind dedicated Smart Wrist Band with sensor lock Geo-fencing - Push Notification if the affected person attempts to move away from the House/phone To Track affected person nearby or crossed paths, stay safe & away from Quarantined Person by general public App makes use of GPS and Bluetooth to determine if a person is nearby or has been in contact with Corona infected person Overcoming BoM optimization on Smart Wrist Band
What we learned
Technology is available for us to make use of it. Working together towards a common goal helps to overcome this crisis that poses a challenge to all of us.
