The Perm company IT-Rev has developed the Human Radar application, which will help the user to maintain social distance. It will inform the owner of the smartphone about people at a distance of up to two meters.

Human Radar is designed like a radar. It tracks smartphones and tablets in the background within a radius of up to eight meters.

- In case of contact with a person within a radius of two meters, the built-in counter records the situation. The application displays unsafe contacts for seven days and detailed statistics for the last 48 hours with the date and time of the contact, - RIA Novosti was told in IT-Rev.

The founder of the company, Anton Danyushin, is sure that observing social distancing is an effective measure in the fight against coronavirus infection, but it is quite difficult to estimate the required distance "by eye". He clarified that today there are no analogues of the application created by his company.

“We decided to automate this process, making it as simple as possible. And they added a counter - it will allow you to independently assess the degree of risk, - said Danyushin.

The application will be improved. For example, over the course of the year, the creators will add a contact card and a family control function with information about the contacts of all family members.

Meanwhile, the results of the work of another application - “Social Monitoring” - have to be challenged in court. To date, 16,000 fines for non-compliance with the self-isolation regime are being challenged in Moscow courts.

Let us note that the Ministry of Health calls, in addition to social distance, to observe the mask regime, making sure that the mask is worn correctly. The Moscow authorities require masks to be worn even on the street, but in practice this is done with the onset of hot weather by not all residents of the city.

In July Russians began to increasingly refuse to wear masks and gloves. Moreover, it is the residents of the capital who wear gloves better than residents of other regions.
