Amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, businesses and industries have to ensure secure social distancing and contact tracing to allow their people to feel more confident about working in co-located physical workplace. The ability to automate monitoring of new safety policies, while empowering employees as part of the new normal in business operations, is critical for any organization.
Whether it’s an office, in a factory or a construction site, each employee can be equipped with a compact wearable proximity sensor which enables easy monitoring of interactions within the common areas, also working alongside security badges for access control. When the sensors record that two or more people have exceeded the safety limit, it warns them with an audible or visual alarm.
The shutdowns are a sign of the difficulty of industrial facilites while complying with enhanced safety measures put in place to deal with the pandemic. Digital sanitary policy enforcement and traceability solutions are an essential tool to help workers follow distancing rules and control their exposure to potential contaminations, therefore preventing organizations from having to shut down plants and facilities.
Contact tracing at the level of a local workplace facility, meaning monitoring the potential spread of the coronavirus from person-to-person, is important. The instant traceability provided by connected proximity detection tags ensures that the potential contamination cluster can be immediately back-traced around the infected employee, and limits the impact to only this cluster.
This demo package combines Abeeway low-power multi-technology trackers on a ThingPark-powered LoRaWAN® infrastructure and the WMW application, allowing you to experience by yourself how LoRa® technology can help to enforce proximity policies to keep your employees safe and ensure business continuity. It is available for three LoRaWAN® regional frequencies EU868, US915, and AS923.
This device is designed by Abeeway, Actility’s subsidiary specialized in low-power geolocation, to help ensure compliance with social stance guidelines while on a job site or at a workplace. It’s a high-end device for Industrial environment: a portable multi-mode tracker in ID card format with embedded sensors combining multiple geolocation technologies, supporting accurate and continious outdoor and indoor geolocation.
