Description
Lopos is a spin-off from IMEC (Interuniversity Microelectronics Centre), IDLab, and Ghent University in Belgium. SafeDistance is a wearable worn around the neck that encourages social distancing between employees. It measures the distance between wearers and uses a sound or vibration to alert them that they are "too close for comfort". It uses ultra-wideband technology instead of Bluetooth for more accurate predictions and does not collect personal information or location data.
