The nine startups are:

BlueSemi: The Hyderabad-based internet-of-things (IoT) startup has developed NEEM, a smart contactless and wireless thermal sensor and imager that measures the temperature data of individuals and a crowd and relays it to any wireless device on a mobile app. 

Byteforce: The Bengaluru-based startup has developed an artificial intelligence (AI)-based computer vision solution, Safevision, which can be integrated into any existing CCTV (close circuit television) or drone camera to monitor people in public places. The product can monitor people via real-time alerts and see if they are wearing masks, or if there are any health risks using thermal cameras.

BlockApps: The Hyderabad-based startup in collaboration with TSalla Aerospace has developed AI and drone-based solutions to support the police and urban local bodies for effective and efficient management and monitoring of the Covid-19 outbreak pan-India. At a time, 30 to 50 drones can be deployed by the startup at any given location.

cogni.Care: The startup combines deep AI with medical records and symptomatic data and sensor-collected data to build a composite picture of the user’s health and provide analytics. It has built the first portable thermal sensor with AI algorithms to predict Covid-19 in real-time.  

Dimension NXG: The Mumbai-based company has developed AjnaLens, a large-scale thermal scanning glasses to help the government, universities and private organisations. These glasses instantly identify individuals showing symptoms of Covid-19 from a distance of three to five metres. These glasses will enable the Indian police, security agencies, doctors and epidemic control units to screen out potential COVID-19 carriers in any indoor or outdoor environment.

Exprs: The startup provides selected, dedicated on-campus delivery executives for gated communities. The second service launched by the startup is Exprs Essentials, an intra-city delivery service of essentials. The solutions are used by six gated communities with around 5,000 flats. So far, Exprs has fulfilled more than 100 emergency and essential requirements in Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

Master PCB: The startup based in Hyderabad has developed a disinfectant sprayer with motion detection auto-spray capabilities. The disinfectant chamber is equipped with temperature scanning and early warning, ultraviolet surface disinfectant and finally controlled spraying in the areas required. 

Marut Drones: The Hyderabad-based drone solutions provider has developed technology to spray disinfectant on large areas. The drones can carry up to 10 litres of disinfectant and cover about 20 kilometres. It has successfully disinfected 1,900 km with 9,800 litres of chemical in eight districts in Telangana.         

Tericsoft: The startup has developed an AI-based computer vision product to detect persons coughing, without a mask and monitor crowd assembly. Tericsoft has its headquarters in Hyderabad.
