DLVSystem vs Covid: A new solution for contact tracing

DLVSystem in partnership with two other spinoffs Cal-Tek and SOMOS implemented a framework to identify people who may have been in contact with an infected individual.

  • Smart reconstruction of the contacts chain starting from a potential infected user;
  • A notification alert that warns users if the system recognizes unsafe contact with a positive user.

The framework is realized within the program “Unical VS. Covid”which aims at the design and implementation of several applications in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
