New Wearable Device Keeps Workers at a Safe Distance
Triax Technologies Inc., a provider of Internet of Things (IoT) worksite technology, recently announced a new IoT system, Proximity Trace™, to keep employees working at a safe distance from each other.
The solution provides proximity distancing alerts and contact tracing through a wearable device for workers in manufacturing, logistics, warehousing and construction. The Proximity Trace devices can be affixed to a hard hat or worn clipped on the body, and emit a progressively louder alarm, alerting workers they are too close to each other.
If there is a confirmed COVID-19 case, an employer can conduct contact tracing using historical data captured by the worker’s device to gauge who may have been exposed. The devices communicate to a cloud dashboard specifically designed for contact tracing.
