Singapore’s GovTech donates OpenTrace to Linux Foundation Public Health’s Herald Project
We’re now over a year since the first national lockdowns due to SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). In this post we look to the continued need for Digital Contact Tracing (DCT), and where the technology is going next.
Version 2.0.0 of Herald is now available!
Herald allows for very regular Bluetooth RSSI readings. These can be used to estimate distance. In this blog we discuss why this is important, and what this information can be used for, and how we provide an accurate way of doing this in Herald.
As part of Herald’s formal adoption by the Linux Foundation we’re about to start migrating our code repositories, website, and communication channels. This blog gives you a ‘heads up’ on the changes coming soon.
The Herald website has been redesigned to make it easier to find and consume relevant information.
Version 1.2.0 of Herald is now available for iOS and Android!
The Herald Project team are pleased to announce the publication of our first dataset from our Edison distance calibration robot. This robot allows two phones to be placed at a precise distance in a controlled setting and moved distance over time.
Version 1.1.0 of Herald is now available for iOS and Android!
We’ve been busy getting ready for the upcoming V1.1 release. For this release we’ve dramatically changed our documentation on this website.
Quite a few things have happened in the first month since Herald was published as Open Source Software under the MIT license. [29 Nov 2020 NOTE: Code now under the Apache-2.0 license]
