Staqu Technologies, an artificial intelligence (AI)-based startup is leveraging its video analytics platform, Jarvis, to restrain the increase of infection in malls & hotels. The company has 15 clients for its software that uses active closed-circuit television (CCTV) and thermal cameras to verify in case social distancing is being retained and also to monitor employees’ body temperature in actual time. For commercial malls, the platform will be competent to send real-time alerts to confirm how many people go into a lift, whether they wear masks or uphold social distancing. With the advancement of technology and a bunch of customized solutions, Gurugram based start-up Park+ has come up with a solution for malls by incorporating four components including thermal scanners and contactless parking. The firm has teamed up with malls in Delhi, Mumbai, Bhopal, and Coimbatore.
The app-based solution will allow employees to check customers and also track their body temperature. The company has created the app in such a way wherein the customers will have to scan a QR code before entering and even exiting the shop or mall, which will eventually help in keeping eye on the number of footfalls in each store.

Israeli scientists have developed a system to produce a tap water-based, pathogen-killing disinfectant, and also have partnered with local industrial automation solutions company RD Pack to roll out a ‘sanitation tunnel’ that will allocate for a safer doorway to public places. The tunnel integrates the disinfectant solution and includes an extra layer of protection by spraying it on those looking to enter a space.
