Lopos has launched SafeDistance wearable, a system that helps companies to maintain social distancing while working, in order to limit the spread of Covid-19. The wearable warns employees through an audible or haptic alarm, when they are violating the social distancing guidelines while approaching each other. The solution guarantees absolute privacy of the user.
Based on UWB technology
The SafeDistance wearable is based on the Lopos ultra-wideband (UWB) technology, that originated from R&D at imec and the Ghent University. This technology enables a safe, highly accurate (< 15 cm error margin) distance measurement. When two wearables approach each other, the exact distance between the devices is measured and an alarm is activated when a minimum safety distance is not respected.
