Bluetooth based digital contact tracing for COVID

By November 30, 2023No Comments

Issue

To build an app that can give companies ability to monitor employee availability and workplace readiness via daily check-ins, all while ensuring the privacy and security of personal data by capturing and storing information about devices that come in contact and thereby track the contact history of a person who is infected.

Our Approach

DataBeat designed and developed this app to ensure employee safety at the workplace using Bluetooth and geofencing technology. When a mobile device comes into range of another device, the app records this as a contact, and stores this data on the individual device In the event of someone testing COVID-19 positive or showing symptoms, the encrypted data from all mobile devices will be retrieved for a specified date range to a secure cloud. The Analytics Engine then identifies the contact traces and categorizes them into high, medium, and low risk based on the number of touch points and distance.

Impact

  • These contact traces can be accessed by the HR/Management, and the exposed employees are notified to ensure the safety of them and the other employees
  • The insights provided by this app prevents a situation where the entire workforce will have to be quarantined
