Recent Research- Covid tracker

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted millions of lives across the globe. While some have been lucky to win the battle against the virus, several others have faced devastating consequences. In our country, “Break the Chain” campaign controlled its spread to a great extent. Tracking a Covid-19 positive person and finding his/her route map was a major challenge for the health authorities. As a solution for this, we developed a device called Covid Tracker to make tracking easier and efficient. It was developed as contactless and effortless temperature and information retrieval system. Covid-19 Tracker verifies the temperature of each person, tracks and records their visit within the system. Here, a single sign up is required to record a person’s visit to any shop. Temperature verification is evaluated within Covid Tracker and after validation, the registration is done by scanning of QR code, which records the entry and exit of the customer. This makes tracking easier and precise for the authorities. A patent on Covid Tracker was published in ‘Official Journal of the Indian Patent Office’ (Issue No. 51/2020).
