- The solution includes a combination of social distancing measures, instant historical contact tracing restricted access to limited areas by creating geo-fencing zones at the hotel/resort and also at the stadium.
- The combination of hardware, wearables and software can ensure the safety of players and ensures that there are no red flags during the tournament.
- Most recently we saw the Pakistan Super League (PSL) being called off due to COVID-19 cases amongst players and staff.

The recently concluded India vs. England Series under BCCI benefitted from Sensegiz Sentinel platform, which has been deployed successfully at Chennai for the first two Tests and then at Ahmedabad for the remaining series.
This was the first Bio-secure series between India and England, held behind closed doors initially (in February and March 2021).
Our data-driven approach with instant reporting ensured the tournament complied with all the necessary Government protocols and data was captured and shared in real-time, thereby helping the command centre to take immediate and necessary action, which in turn, helped minimize the risk of COVID-19 during the tournament. SenseGiz offers accurate data with 24/7 support in monitoring throughout the entire duration of the tournament.
What’s Next Then?
It is increasingly clear that technology has a critical role to play in the return of sports tournaments and large-scale events. The combination of hardware, wearables, and software can ensure the safety of everyone involved. The same solution can also be implemented across various other sports tournaments like Pro-Kabaddi League, Badminton League, ISL where the stakes are high. SenseGiz is looking at deploying this solution across multiple domestic-level tournaments as well. Besides sports, SenseGiz has successfully supported various sectors and industries by managing workforce safety and helped enforce social distancing to help them get back to work by deploying the SenseGiz Sentinel Platform to ensure business continuity.
