Kinexon, a global provider of precise real-time localization, is launching Kinexon SafeZone, a wristband that actively warns the user as soon as the minimum physical distance to another person is compromised. With optional software, companies can also trace chains of infection and take strategic action. Kinexon SafeZone is immediately available as a plug-and-play solution with no infrastructure required. Other features include highly-accurate real-time precision, strong data protection and fast scaling options.
"To fight the coronavirus, we have established a task force to develop Kinexon SafeZone.”, said Dr. Alexander Hüttenbrink, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Kinexon. “We want to help customers secure jobs and protect the health of their employees. SafeZone is the first digital industrial solution for the mass market that actively reduces infections. Instead of complete quarantines, which ultimately means a standstill in the company, we enable prevention strategies by maintaining minimum distances and precisely tracing infection chains."
The basic version of Kinexon SafeZone consists of the Kinexon SafeTag, a wearable with an precise sensor for reliable distance measurement. The sensor warns in real time, audibly as well as visually, as soon as the physical distance has been compromised and the contact duration exceeds a specified time. The Kinexon SafeTag uses ultra-wideband technology and can be worn as a wristband or clipped onto clothing. The wearable can be extended by software on request. This enables the storage of relevant data relating to critical contact events and allows for analysis, which is compliant with data protection regulations. In the event of a positive infection report, potential cases of infection can be identified using the relevant sensor IDs.
