Problem Statement:

The biggest challenge with COVID-19 is ensuring the QUARANTINED cases are STAYING ISOLATED, LIVE TRACKING the infected 24/7 with a foolproof solution using Lockable-SMART WRISTBAND. The RISK is some of them START MOVING OUT and starts spreading to community, which leads to exponential COMMUNITY SPREAD and becomes unstoppable. The best solution to avoid community spread is to ensure the quarantined people STAY ISOLATED by GEO-FENCING. To MAP QUARANTINE & HOTSPOT NEARBY and STAY SAFE & away from Quarantined, Infected Person & Hotspot.

How It Works:

1. The solution consists of a All-Time Tracking and Sensor-Lock
Smart Wrist Band.

2. Each Quarantined Person will be made to wear a Smart Wrist band all time 24x7 till quarantine period ends. The smart wrist band is tracked live with GPS location using the quarantined person’s Smart Phone.

3. App makes use of GPS and Bluetooth to determine if a person is nearby or has been in contact with Corona infected person through Maps.

4. If the person attempts to move out from the quarantined house, then an alert is sent immediately to the cloud with all the required details. Then the govt agencies can take necessary actions by live tracking the person.

5. Tracking Cloud application will get alert on:

  • Wrist Band disconnects from Smart Phone
  • (If person moves away ~25meter from Phone)
  • The Smart Phone moves out of quarantined house
  • First responders Enters/Passes Hotspot Area
  • Body temperature spike•Panic/Emergency Button
