Stay safe and avoid large crowds with help from fellow grocery shoppers.
Our idea helps primary grocery shoppers avoid central spots during peak times by finding less crowded places to go and feel safe while shopping, unlike contact tracing which notifies you after an incident and gives you less control of your personal data.
What is the need are you focusing on?
Social distancing is here to stay at least until 2022 according to Harvard. This is because once the initial wave of Coronavirus infections has passed, further outbreaks could occur. Coronavirus has also opened people’s minds to the daily risks of infection that we all face.
In that context, many people are doing their best to stay home and avoid large crowds. Grocery stores are high-density central spots where people are at greatest risk of contracting coronavirus. Despite this, people are still risking their life by visiting the stores when the stores are busy. This is because people have no choice but to shop for their essential groceries. We can help people avoid large crowds by providing visibility over the density of people in grocery shops.
