MPI – Preventive Monitoring of Interaction
Our solution makes use advanced bluetooth smartphone technology, acting as mapping tool of people interactions. If a person presents symptoms, it is quickly possible to identify with whom was the contact in the last days, and classify its intensity (by time and proximity), facilitating preventive decision making.
Solutions like ours have been developed for open use by the population in cities like London and Singapore. In our case, we are targeting interactions in controlled environments, such as companies and plants that decided to keep their operations productive and for essential public services. Companies could maintain essential operations and prove to the authorities that they are taking control measures. Utilities providers of different categories such as maintenance, telecommunication, and security could continue working with greater safety, mapping possible internal contagion outbreaks.
Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact
We believe that our tool may play an important role in the dilemma between quarantining and interrupting activities of basic necessity. Effective control in the spread of the virus within the company can prevent them from closing due to the lack of employees tracking, which could cause possible contagions, leading the company to be classified as a community focus.
