How can we create a device that can track and limit the number of people entering and exiting locations like supermarket and storage room?Project Introduction
This project aims to counter the existing problems we face during this Covid-19 pandemic. By allowing businesses to automatically track and monitor the number of people in an enclosed area such as the supermarket to abide the rules set to quell the spread of Covid-19. In this period where the virus is getting more potent, this device can help maintain the number of people in the area at one time. Thus, being a key part of how supermarkets are managed.Research Background
- By ensuring the number of people in the area is below a certain set threshold
- How can we implement a device that can track those inside an area while ensuring that after the threshold is reached, no entry is permitted.
- The occupancy limit for malls and large standalone stores4 is one person per 10 sqm of Gross Floor Area (GFA).
- Food & beverage (F&B) establishments, retail establishments and lifestyle-related services currently in operation must implement SMMs, as required by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and comply with the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020
