Google Sodar App

Sodar App by Google:

Google-developed Sodar app has now enabled all smartphone users to come up with a new way of letting themselves know if a person is closer to each other than the stated distance. This Google Sodar App uses Android smartphone cameras to put the application's users at the centre of a circle that is about 2 meters or 6.5 feet as a radius. If any person nearby comes within the diameter of the circle, the consumer is informed. The interface is plain and similar to the PokemonGo smartphone game that uses augmented reality perimeter technology.

Those circular perimeters move around with users while the center of the smartphone remains. The users of the Sodar app receive a visual warning when they are within the radius of potential danger. The Google-developed application works on Android smartphones running the Google Chrome browser that, according to the reports, supports augmented reality. The Google Sodar website said this experiment uses WebXR to visualize guidelines of 2 meters of social distance in your environment. The app is a location-based Coronavirus tracker app that lets the user understand whether they have come into contact with any positive COVID-19 patient. Not only does the application provide COVID updates, but it also includes an interactive form that allows everyone to check for symptoms of COVID and guides them to see a doctor if necessary.
