How EAIGLE is helping stop the spread of COVID-19

As provinces begin to reopen, the move back to our public spaces is met with mixed feelings: excitement, about being able to regain some semblance of normalcy, relief, for business owners who were struggling to pay rent, and also apprehension around being able to provide (or shop in) a safe environment. What’s certain is that businesses and customers alike will have to remain vigilant and continue to follow physical distancing guidelines.

When the severity of the situation became clear in March, EAIGLE adapted their technology to stop the spread of COVID-19. By monitoring the body temperature of guests, businesses, and public spaces can identify people who may have contracted the virus.

A company in our Climate Ventures’ Earth Tech accelerator, EAIGLE’s original focus was on water conservation. Using artificial intelligence, their technology could monitor crowds and analyze occupancy in real time, enabling buildings to optimize their water and energy use.

“I’ve always been looking for ways to make a positive impact on our planet, starting with cleantech energy and water conservation,” said Amir Hoss, Founder and CEO. “In buildings, HVAC systems and swimming pools are the two components responsible for the majority of energy and water usage – but in recent years, there haven’t been effective solutions developed to address these inefficiencies. We saw a huge opportunity to optimize these systems through AI.”

Amir and his team are grateful to be able to contribute to the fight against COVID-19.

“Our team has worked tirelessly for weeks to bring this solution to the public,” Amir said. “We are determined to put an end to this pandemic, and we are grateful that we can create a positive impact.”
