Contact Tracing Solution

What is Contact Tracing?

Contact Tracer automates tracing process, creating real-time notifications to those at risk. Our Contact Tracing app uses a state-of-the-art approach that respects privacy while using real-time location tracking via your smartphone. It works as follows:

  • Users are able to download the app and turn on Bluetooth and Location Tracking 
  • When two app users are in close proximity, anonymized IDs are swapped via Bluetooth and stored on the device
  • If a user tests positive for COVID-19, the app provides an instant record of all recent contacts and exposures within the population for up to the past 14 days.
  • Public Health Units can then activate a notification to be sent to those contacts, in real time informing them to self-isolate and arrange for testing.

Getting involved with our initiative

Our aim is to produce an open-source solution on a non-profit basis, and work collaboratively with other groups around the world to provide and implement similar technology to stop the pandemic world-wide.
