Crowd Tracing enables users find where the crowds are in the area of their interest to save time and avoid risks of group gathering and exposure to the virus. With this new feature, user can easily view live clusters of hi-hive crowds in the area of their interest on a map.

Health Tracker, currently a feature specifically enabled for the UTAR community, is built for community owners to have a monitoring tool to control and prevent the spread of COVID-19 within their campus community. The feature enables the community owners to track and monitor their members’ body temperature prior to the members’ entry to the campus and its premises.  This allows the community to stop people who are infected or not well from entering its premises and risk infecting others. This practice is also in line with the standard operating procedures given by the government during this COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that members entering the campus are symptoms free.

UTAR President Ir Prof Ewe Hong Tat added that, “UTAR is indeed grateful to Silverlake Lifestyle Community for developing these features in hi-hive that are very useful for us to keep our community safe and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.”  

These new features by hi-hive encourage users to stay at least 1m apart from other people, to stay out of crowded places and to be conscious of the health of their own and members of the community.
