Samsung smartwatches help maintain social distance

Samsung Electronics has partnered with Radiant to develop an interesting solution for office work in a pandemic. For this, smart watches Galaxy Watch Active2 are used.

The developed solution helps to maintain social distance for employees returning to their offices from remote work in the United States. The watch with the installed Radiant RFID application is issued to employees.

The application uses Bluetooth to work. As noted by the developers, the radius of the Bluetooth LE is almost equal to the distance that employees must maintain to reduce the risk of infection. Thus, the two devices “see” each other exactly at the moment when people violate the social distancing rule.

The watch vibrates and displays a warning “Be careful” if users are closer to each other than 180 cm. The watch also warns if employees gather in a group of more than 10 people.

As noted by Radiant, such a solution allows to reduce the number of dangerous interactions in offices and in production by 65-70% within a few days after the start of wearing the devices.
