Adder launched in 2017 with the goal of measuring who had been exposed to outdoor ads like billboards, bus and box truck ads, car wraps -- you name it.
In 2020, we're working to track the spread of COVID-19 using anonymized cell phone data to make contact tracing easy for health and government officials, while maintaining our intensive consumer privacy standards.
Johns Hopkins University has produced a map of people known to be infected with novel Coronavirus across the US, but we had an idea: What if we could know who crossed paths with those people?
We would appreciate any industry experts to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with their feedback or any contributions they'd like to make on this concept. We need to be sure this is a good plan before we shift focus toward this.
We've been building apps to track vehicles and other IoT devices since 2017, and can adapt our software to help figure out who's come in contact with a person who's carrying Coronavirus.
While we talk to experts in the health field, we're already working on building the apps.
If you'd like to contribute, we'll be adding a github repo of our tracking application to fork as soon as possible.
Adder is a small startup, with limited developer resources can't do this all on our own.
There's a lot you can do to help us pull this off:
Signup for the app waitlist, download and use it when it's ready, help us fund this effort, and spread the word faster than the virus spreads itself.

If we're going to beat COVID-19, we need to spread the word faster than the virus can spread itself.
