Revolutionizing Disease Surveillance: Digital Contact Tracing with UWB in Low Income Countries

We are thrilled to actively work on and support disease surveillance with our UWB technology and expertise, in partnership with Botnar Foundation, ISI Foundation, ETH Zurich, EPFL, UCL and Delft University.

Investigating disease surveillance in low-income countries through the innovative use of UWB (Ultra-Wideband) technology will enable cross research teams from Switzerland, Kenya and Côte d’Ivoire to investigate the spread of infectious diseases and define ways to prevent it.

The sensor technology is now fully developed and ready for deployment. Several pilots will be launched in the next months to gather real-life data and investigate disease spread. We are happy that our knowledge in UWB could help such important research initiatives and help advance human knowledge. It is a noble pursuit!
