Proximity Trace provides proximity distancing alerts and contact tracing through a wearable device for workers.
Devices are affixed to a hard hat or worn on the body with a lanyard and emit a progressively louder alarm, alerting workers when they are too close to each other. The alarm can also serve to change behaviors by reminding workers to practice safe social distancing. Units communicate separately to a cloud dashboard specifically designed for contact tracing.
