Proximity Detection and Contact Tracing for COVID-19 Webinar

24th June, 2020


People are the most important assets of any organization, and amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, businesses and industries have to ensure secure social distancing and contact tracing to allow their people to feel more confident about working in a co-located physical workplace. In this webinar we will be talking about how LoRaWAN devices can help fight against COVID-19 by detecting proximity and contact tracing among people in areas like offices or public spaces. Join us to learn how to:

  • Ensure that people are keeping the safe distance between each other and reduce virus interactions.
  • Avoid any temporary shutdown of your facility with enhanced safety measures.
  • Trace the interactions between infected and healthy people to identify a contamination cluster

LoRaWAN is designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the internet in regional, national or global networks, and targets key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements. It has high security integrated in its design and the powerful LoRa Alliance ecosystem, endorsing it. This allows this technology to have countless applications, from personnel tracking to smart cities, spreading rapidly around the world.
