COVID-19 detection using Commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) components


A group of researchers from Electrical Engineering department recently presented an intuitive and cost-effective method to detect COVID-19. The researchers utilized COTS components to tap into breathing patterns, cough, fever, and workout patterns to gain insights on respiratory tract diseases in general, and COVID-19 in particular. Later, the Machine Learning algorithms can make real-time prognosis that helps in early detection of respiratory tract diseases.
