Technology a useful aid for travel reboot

The use of contact tracing tools, GPS and Bluetooth, mobile phone applications, artificial intelligence, digital thermometers and wearable technology by governments have helped to restore confidence in people to resume some form of normal life even in the absence of a Covid-19 vaccine.

However, their application is not without obstacles, from privacy woes to information overload when multiple programmes are utilised.

In the sixth and final article by TTG Asia Media for the PATA Crisis Resource Center, TTG Asia’s Marissa Carruthers looks at the technologies and solutions available to support governments in their contact tracking and health tracking efforts, and finds out from specialised developers as well as travel and tourism industry leaders what an ideal solution would be to grant the public a reliable license to travel once more.

License to Travel is now available on the PATA Crisis Resource Center website.
