Ideas for creating, maintaining, and monitoring social distance in public transport vehicles.

As we get back to the new normal lifecycle, hygience will be the new focus area for not only the travellers but also the service providers; government and transport authorities.

Given the quantum of passengers travelling on a daily basis using the public transport, how do we manage social distancing in that scenario?

Ideas for devices/systems/processes that can disinfect, sanitise, and eliminate the virus

Currently, across the globe all efforts are being poured in towards discovering ways to eliminate the virus and get humankind out of the current situation stronger than ever.

As we all strive to fight against this deadly disease, by doing our part, what could be the sustainable solution in eliminating the virus?

Third party quality assurance of the safety systems.

Government would need support of private players as well, as it prepares itself to combat the post covid-19 situation. One of the main areas of its focus would include ensuring quality standards.

Given the gravity of the situation, how does one ensure alignment with quality standards and requisites remotely?

Remote monitoring including of indicative parameters
  • Monitoring including remote of indicative parameters like temperature etc for detecting the probability of corona.
  • Add on devices to monitor indicative parameters and obtaining patterns from aggregation on the cloud.

Are there ways symptomatic parameters can be monitored for onboard passengers?

Isolation of an infected passenger when infection is detected onboard

We need to be aware of the fact, that we might get certain contained outbreaks even after new normal is taking its shape. As people would start commuting we might get certain incidents of new cases getting reported.

If such a case is reported in a public transport for that matter, what should be the immediate steps followed by co-passengers for safety of the population, and how to isolate them all?

Maintaining health and positivity of service providers in transport

Currently, the frontline workers we have are pouring in their heart and soul to ensure the safety of the nation's population. As we egress from the current situation, and we move towards the new normal, we will have people coming back to the public transports.

At that time, what should be the mandate for transport workers? How do we manage their health and ensure they are protected from the virus?
