The blockchain-based application will provide tourists at New York State Airport with real-time surface cleanliness data.
With the aim of repelling the rapidly spreading coronavirus epidemic, Albany Airport in New York has begun testing a “Health Monitoring Application” to monitor the cleanliness of surfaces and objects inside airports.
Application by General Electric Co. (GE) developed in partnership with TE-FOOD and Eurofins, aimed at providing a safe travel experience during and after a coronavirus pandemic. It was built using Microsoft Azure enterprise blockchain.
This application is intended to provide tourists with information on the cleanliness of surfaces before real time travelers touch them. Tourists will be able to gather this information by scanning QR codes scattered in and around the airport with their phone.
The app also gives travelers the ability to show their personal observations of the cleanliness of a particular surface.
According to Albany Airport, the test will last for three months, as airport staff will use the app to monitor cleaning processes for areas in and around the airport. More than 45 QR codes have been placed in areas and on objects around airports.
The director of the Albany County Airport Authority, Philip Calderone, said:
“The use of GE’s advanced Health Monitoring is the first step in our joint effort to integrate new digital solutions – making travel safer in a post-pandemic world. . “
Other governments around the world have also turned to blockchain technology to help fight viruses.
In Singapore, government-owned investment firm SGInnovate and start-up Accredify have jointly developed a new blockchain-based digital health passport.
Additionally, Singapore’s Perlin company has developed a blockchain-based mobile application called “ICC AOKpass”, which allows users to instantly verify their COVID-19 status.
