We introduce a smart system to track and maintain real-time physical distance between people and to warn people over any deviation from the prescribed distances. Social-distancing is an effective way of slowing infectious disease spread. People are advised to reduce their contacts with each other, thus reducing the chances of transmitting the disease through physical or near contact. We proposed a system to automate the task of tracking social distance using video surveillance and sensors. The

Furthermore we are using drown to detect crowded area. The accuracy of detection using sensors can be helpful when it combined with the camera for computer vision task in terms of visualization using camera and rebuses of detection using sensor. Both camera and sensor gauge the environment to detect moving objects simultaneously.
