To re-open borders without quarantine and restart aviation governments need to be confident that they are effectively mitigating the risk of importing COVID-19. This means having accurate information on passengers’ COVID-19 health status.
Informing passengers on what tests, vaccines, and other measures they require prior to traveling, details on where they can get tested, and giving them the ability to share their tests and vaccination results in a verifiable, safe, and privacy-protecting manner are the key to giving governments the confidence to open borders. Pass aims to both provide information about entry requirements to foreign countries and offer a verified platform on which to store and display COVID-19 test results and, eventually, vaccination records. It should help to clear up traveler confusion around requirements for entry and how to adequately prove they’ve been met. Something like this would also help immigration authorities and airline staff who will not have to question the legitimacy of a range of different health documents, potentially in multiple languages and formats.
In the end, the goal is to facilitate more travel even while COVID-19 continues to spread – although hopefully over time and as more people get vaccinated, this spread continues to diminish. And combined with solutions like this, hopefully, things should get better and better in 2021 for people who need to travel.
What it does
RFID tag contains all details of the passenger during the whole journey. That would be done through Self Test Kiosk.
The app should have the following functions: 1) Document storage (eg. Covid19 vaccine record, antibodies test, Covid19 test results), 2) Verification of these documents, 3) Make it easy to share with different institutions/Associations with the help of OR Code. 4) Contains all details regarding check-in, baggage, etc.
That tag only accessible/Valid in whole means from Takeoff airport to destination Airport.
How we built it
With the help of RFID, we store the data in the tag of each user after entering the details over Self Test Kiosk on the Airports. Also, enter details in the app and answer some questions, then QR Code generated for accessibility. App Built through MIT App Inventor and store data over Google Firebase.
Challenges we ran into
Limited Hardware/Electronics components.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We did it, what we want.
What we learned
Linked MIT App Inventor with NodeMCU and RFID.
What's next for Digital Pass
While the current use case Figure out the limitation of the project if any and Build a scalable prototype to use publicly.
