Technology is the controller of social distance
Estimot, a company that develops Bluetooth technology for positioning, has adapted its products to develop a new device. It is specifically designed to control the spread of COVID-19. The company has created a new series of portable beacons that, according to co-founder Steve Cheney, can increase security at the workplace for those who need to be in the office.
The devices are designed to provide contact tracing, in other words, monitoring the potential spread of coronaviruses from one person to another at the workplace level.
Employees can wear the device with a badge that, when contacting people from more than two meters away, the device will record the interaction as dangerous and mark the person as potentially infected. Thus, technology is the controller of social distance.
The device includes a passive GPS location tracker, as well as Bluetooth and ultra-wideband radios, a battery and proximity sensors working via built-in LTE.

Remember that smart watches can help identify symptoms without visiting medical facilities. Apple Watch, Fitbit and Wear OS Watch cannot measure temperature. But you can regularly check the temperature yourself and enter data into Apple Health or Google Fit. After that, it will be easy to consult a doctor in case of poor health and fever.
But the main useful feature offered by such a smart watch is heart rate monitoring. The watch can alert users of possible signs of atrial tremor or respiratory failure in a dream.
