Abstract

Epidemic diseases have repeatedly troubled mankind. With the Zika virus threatening societies around the whole world in recent years, the importance of epidemic disease control is greater than ever. We propose a warning and detection system for epidemic diseases. In our work, we designed the system and algorithm using GPS to prevent disease infection at the source and international propagation. The system was divided into 3 parts: The control center of the epidemic disease, the traveler's smartphone app, and the GPS log analyzer at airports. The control center distributes epidemic disease information, the app keeps track of the current location (GPS) and presents warning messages if necessary, and the analyzer detects people who are likely to be infected. The validity and performance of the system were examined through experiments. To confirm the accuracy of the system, the experiment was conducted with different scenarios considering practical application.
