‘Chakravyuh’ developed by Bengaluru-based assisted learning startup Thinkerbell Labs is a product which takes body temperature data at citizen touch points, analyses and predicts spread patterns through which it can identify high-risk zones during this Covid-19 pandemic.
Founded in 2016 by Sanskriti Dawle, Aman Srivastava, Dilip Ramesh, and Saif Shaikh, Thinkerbell Labs, previously known as Project Mudra, began its journey as an independent research project at BITS Pilani Goa.
“Chakravyuh deploys a connected, smart temperature measurement and analytics solution for district and state administrations, providing them with quick and comprehensive access to the information they need to pre-empt the spread of COVID-19,” said Aman, Co-founder and COO of Thinkerbell Labs.
The hardware is used to measure body temperature and transmit that data to a smartphone; the software collects, visualizes and analyses the temperature data, enabling pattern prediction to pre-empt the spread of COVID-19. The word Chakravyuh can be loosely translated as labyrinth, and the idea behind the product name was to help trap COVID-19 spread in a labyrinth.
Covid-19 pandemic has made us realize how important it is to study health trends and why it is necessary to save healthcare data. Thinkerbell Lab’s core product Annie, named after Helen Keller’s teacher Anne Sullivan, is a literacy device that helps the visually impaired learn to read, write, and type in Braille on their own. According to the company, the product has been deployed at more than 16 locations across the country.
