The platform provides real-time alerts and among its services it offers COVID-19 identification, tracing of suspecting individuals, monitoring of personal protective equipment (PPE), safety, security and hygiene via video analytics. Rai added that the data is “anonymised and privacy not compromised.” The company has already tied up with 15 partners, including Microsoft.
Park+ on the other hand uses customers phones to provide passes and check body temperature. It has so far teamed up with malls in Delhi, Bhopal, Mumbai and Coimbatore, where upon entry customers scan a QR code verified via one-time password (OTP). This allows the mall to track the customer and provides directions and digital payment. It also provides contactless parking facility.
Magneto CleanTech has seen a surge in demand for its air purifier tech since the lockdown. Its solution – filter-less magnetic technology can be added onto any AC system. The company is exploring customised offering for transit systems such as buses, railways and metros in the near future.Follow our full COVID-19 coverage here
