Ola has opened up its technology platform to Governments to fight COVID-19 through ‘Ola CONNECTS’ (COmprehensive Navigation, NEtworking, Control and Tracking Solution). This is a platform that allows government agencies to manage real-time war rooms for various operations at scale, amidst the ongoing COVID-19 crisis with 100% data privacy and world-class security. In the state of Punjab, this free platform is used to provide e-passes to farmers to enable farm to market movement of fresh produce in this time of crisis. The Ola CONNECTS centralised dashboard can track the movement of farmers along with their vehicles in and around the mandis enabling officials to manage the flow of farmers and the collection of their produce to prevent crowding. The platform’s capabilities include: navigation and real-time tracking of enrolled vehicles/people 24×7; geofencing controls to restrict user activity specific zones with alerting mechanisms; real-time alert system and crowd and flow management, which will enable scheduling, flow control and planning capabilities; and AI-enabled selfie authentication to conduct random checks to ensure all preventive measures like usage of masks are being strictly adhered to.
