Social distancing challenge during COVID-19 Pandemic.
What it does
Our solution is an all-in-one tracking system based on geofencing that can create self-moving virtual boundaries, provide close contact alerts, and also track contact with infected individuals. With social distancing enforcement for all the citizens and the rising violations of government rules such as quarantine measures, our solution can be deployed to notify both the government and the user if any rules are violated. The tracker creates a virtual boundary along with precise GPS tracking and geofencing. Individuals tested positive for COVID-19 will be filtered and categorized into a separate group and the system can send alerts to other people if they are in close proximity. Our system will maintain a database of a person’s traveling history and person to person close contact details like, when he/she met with a person and how much time he spent with him/her on a particular location. In case if a person will be detected later as COVID-19 affected then it will be easier to trace other contacted people in the past or get a detailed report of the contact chain. There will be an alert for COVID-19 affected zones when a person is entering its radius. Many people who do not have a smartphone can use our custom and affordable hardware that they can keep in their pockets/wallets. People who already have smartphones can use our App. Our tracker can also be used by Police and local authorities to prevent violations of self-quarantines and home quarantined individuals, especially people with foreign travel history. Another major application of this could be in schools and universities as well for passengers in public transport.
Some Key features of our product include: • Single-button SOS alert to family • Fall detection • Attendance system for corporate offices/co-working spaces, institutes, and large organizations like schools and colleges. • Restricting entry to specific areas or spaces • Family members can keep a track of where each member is traveling and can communicate if one ignores safety instructions. • When a family member arrives at the door, members in the house will be notified to open the door to avoid contact on doorknobs. • Parents can restrict their children's access to certain areas and track their movement if they go outdoors to play. • Reminders to sanitize and follow guidelines after coming home from work. Information auto-syncs with the latest government guidelines. • The System will provide a public flow interactive map to check public density on utility places such as grocery stores. A person can decide whether to enter a particular store or wait until the number of people decreases. • Grocery stores and supermarkets can update their location into our application with their service name and working hours. Users shall be notified of any changes.
How I built it
We have great experience in GPS Telematics Solutions. I use a sophisticated GPS tracking software System and Smartphone/Personal Tracker as a GPS Hardware
Challenges I ran into
Fixed location-based geofencing on virtual maps is possible to create easily in the GPS tracking system. But our application will carry an innovative solution to provide a next-level moving virtual fencing which was not easy to develop and that can be useful for people to manage social distancing.
