As we all know, COVID-19 is contagious and spreads easily! To reduce contamination, RIVM and the government advised people to maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 meters. In an attempt to ensure that, the Amsterdam-based company SmartEagle, a spin-off from IoT company Evalan, has developed a solution for social distancing – The Distance Sensor.
According to the company claims, the distance between people is measured with a network of optical SmartEagle sensors. Each sensor measures the number of persons and the distance between them. The data from the different sensors are combined to validate that the mutual distance meets the requirements.
