TITA, DRDO join hands to implement SAMPARC software

Hyderabad, Jul 13 (UNI) Defence equipment maker organization DRDO and software professionals industry body Telangana Information Technology Association (TITA) have joined hands to implement Smart Automated Management of Patients and Risks for Covid-19 (SAMPARC) an automated management of patient’s software that the former has designed.
The pilot for the implementation will likely begin shortly in any one district. Both the organizations have entered into an agreement on online, a TITA statement here said on Monday.
The online pact was signed by Dr Rituraj Kumar, Scientist G, Center for AI & Robotics (CAIR) DRDO and Sundeep Kumar Makthala, Global President, TITA.
The SAMPARC created by DRDO is a software tool that can be a handy tool for law enforcement and health officials.
This would enable intelligent automated tracking of those in quarantine or isolation. It will also generate alerts if there are violations or willful suppression of movement details. This is expected to reduce the tracking workload of law enforcement or health officials.
The SAMPARC solution can be deployed as a National service by NIC, or can be distributed as a State-wise or region-wise service.
This can be used for quarantine or isolation monitoring only and not for contact tracing. It relies on the information provided by the police and health officials. It allows geofencing, face recognition, display of data on map (with hotspot information if available).
