#SmartCities Hack Winner Showcase: Team GTPLUS & WYHIL #3

This is the fourth in a six-part  series which will showcase the projects built by the Top 6 teams of the #SmartCities Hackathon. The Smart Cities hack was a two event hackathon organized by Hackmakers dedicated to finding innovative solutions to  generate more awareness, stronger communications and quicker responses  for tomorrow’s smart cities.

Challenge Addressed

Safe Cities

Safe Cities requires an understanding of  the need for security to evolve from a reactive to a proactive approach,  with integrated response. The Safe Cities Challenge category can cover  solutions that help cities to manage public security issues as a city  population and urbanization grows.

Problem Statement

According  to a report by the US Environmental Protection Agency, people are  spending 90% of their time indoors and the concentration rate of air  pollutants indoors is 2-5 times higher than outer air pollutants.

Risk  of Covid-19 infection increases when either concentration of CO2 or  Aerosol rates are high. The CO2 concentration rate is one of the most  important indicators used by indoor air management systems to measure  air quality. When a person infected with Covid-19 talks or sneezes,  droplets and aerosol spreads into the indoor space.


The  project, ‘Covid-19 Pandemic Prevention’ provides a preventive solution  for respiratory diseases like Covid-19 using Oracle Cloud tech (ADW and  OAC).

To prevent respiratory  diseases such as Covid-19, the team has come up with an indoor air  quality antivirus management system and untact/automation AI/AIoT indoor  air quality management platform.


Team GTPLUS & WYHIL applied ‘The Swiss Cheese Respiratory Virus Pandemic Defence Theory’.

The  given theory suggests a step about ‘managing indoor air quality as a  mark’, which can be done without having much expertise in medical  science.  

With the right  approach and implementation of right tools, the team aims to prove that  IT technology can contribute to the prevention of Covid-19 by using  Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

How Does it Work?

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Architecture –

  • Collecting CO2, fine dust, TVOCs, temperature and community data in real time by using WYHIL airfield device
  • Using OCI streaming service, to collect real time mass data and store data to object storage service
  • Using OCI function service, for data processing and then store it to autonomous data warehouse
  • Using Oracle Analytics Cloud, to make graphs, charts and maps to monitor data from ADW efficiently
  • Setting and Applying system to monitor data from various angles from many different situations
  • The OAC dashboard would now show the numbers, location and operation rate  of devices which get the information of selected locations
  • If  a specific location is selected, we can get its operation rate. This  would allow us to check if there are any blind spots in the whole air  quality monitoring system in real time
  • Selected  places are plotted with factors such as early CO2 concentration,  temperature and humidity measurement for selected time range. Based on  the analysis of various factors, we can check at what time the  concentration levels are high and take appropriate measures accordingly,  as per the guidelines
  • When  data shows that the levels have exceeded the threshold, the system  could send an alert to the user or operate on an automatic ventilation  system.

This can efficiently contribute to Covid-19  prevention and prove the effectiveness of a Smart City’s automatic  healthcare system for its citizens.
