COVID Tracing System In UK

COVID Tracing System

Our IoT development team at SAPHI designed & built a wearable COVID tracing system that allows users to trace the interactions they have had with people infected with COVID via an intuitive, custom-built app.


Who Was Our Client?

Cross-Trace is an investor-backed UK startup that has developed a system to trace users’ interactions with people found to be suffering from COVID. 


What Problem Did Cross-Trace Need SAPHI To Solve?

Cross-Trace had an idea to create a system that would trace users interactions with people suffering from COVID but didn’t have the technical expertise to build a system that would achieve this goal. Cross-traced hired us to leverage our expertise in end-to-end product development and prototyping to get the system off the whiteboard and into users’ hands.


What Was The Solution?

SAPHI designed and developed a complete end-to-end solution, combining hardware & software, that would allow for users to have their interactions with COVID infected individuals traced.

Our team developed a wearable device that traces peoples’ interactions with COVID via GPS denied location tracking technology. This ensures our system will work on all corners of the globe, regardless of GPS accessibility.

Our team paired this wearable device with an intuitive, custom-built mobile app that immediately notifies users of their interactions with individuals found to be suffering from COVID.


What Skills Did SAPHI Use To Implement The Solution?

SAPHI leveraged its expertise in a broad range of areas to construct the system, including:

  • C/C++ for device code
  • NodeJS for syncing data to the net
  • ARM Linux setup and configuration
  • Google Cloud (Firebase) backend for database management
  • Device electrical setup specification

What Support Did SAPHI Offer After Completion?

SAPHI provided three months of on-going support and maintenance to ensure a smooth transition of asset ownership to Spike Design.
