“The existing approaches put the onus of responsibility of contact tracing and alerting or isolating the potential suspects on the government only, and are subjected to delays because of which, in most cases, the suspect has further spread the virus to many before being caught. This app, if implemented successfully, can timely alert and more efficiently control the spread,” the developer student Sahil Verma said. Similarly, a team of students and alumni at IIT Bombay, have made a mobile app named “CORONTINE” that will help in tracking the potential or suspected asymptomatic carriers (AC) of coronavirus if they leave their quarantine zone. … [Read more...] about ‘Go Corona Go’, ‘Sampark-o-Meter’ apps developed by IISC, IITs to fight against Covid-19
Different apps by IISc and four IITs generate a ‘risk score’ and track your interactions using Bluetooth and GPS From “GoCoronaGo” to “Sampark-o-Meter”, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore and four Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) have developed several mobile applications to aid the fight against coronavirus in the country. The app “GoCoronaGo” has been developed by a team at IISc which can help identify people who may have crossed paths with COVID-19 suspects. Tarun Rambha, a faculty member at IISc, told PTI. “It also provides alerts on isolation and proximity scores, and helps enhance social distancing. It also has a geo-fencing feature for those who are under quarantine, and has the ability to provide their symptoms which is used in the risk evaluation,” Rambha added. A B.Tech student at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Ropar has developed a mobile-based app called … [Read more...] about Ever crossed paths with a Corona carrier?
"The app can track individuals and also can do geo-fencing around him or her. The system will get an alert, if geo-fencing is violated by the quarantined person. In case GPS data is not received, the location will be obtained automatically through the triangulation of mobile towers. If the Internet is not working in a certain area, the location will be received through SMS," Jain said. … [Read more...] about IISc, IITs develop mobile apps to aid COVID-19 fight
