A device connected with the mobile phone that will be placed in all public city locations.



We could speed up the process of diagnostic testing by making the tests available for public everywhere (airports, stations, city center, rural areas, etc.). Every person could take a test from a vending device called ,,Health” that could be placed in different city areas. Every test will be registered with a QR code and to take a test from the vending machine you have to scan your personal QR by putting the phone in the front of the machine. If the user is positive he has to stay isolated and based on the QR scanned with the phone, a message will be send to a big-database where all the tests are registered.

All the QR codes are stored into the database of the machine and will be send to the big database to know exactly the location where the test was taken from.

The device can be accessed even by people with disabilities using voice assistants.It will also have a camera and a thermoscanner to tell the temperature.

A AI alghorytm will take temperature data from all those who take a test. If the average exceeds 37.5 and more tests taken from that location are positive, then an alarm system will inform the large database who will inform the city authorities and the location where the device was placed will be temporarily closed.

All the reports will be live on a map so the user can avoid the dangerous areas.

The new biomarkers of disease can be identify by users feedback inside a mobile app. All the feedback will be collected and a AI algorythm will sort the most used words by the users.

The users will take the test and he will scan the QR code with his application. When the test confirms that he is positive, the app will mark the location of the phone as a ,,positive device”.

Who will take these actions?

To achieve this idea requires investors from this area but especially local authorities, governments or airlines.

What are the projected costs?

The cost depends on what components we will use. 

The station could exceed 500$ but all the local authorities could get the system from their own funds.
