How far apart do colleagues need to be in order to maintain a distance of one and a half or two meters apart? It's difficult to correctly always estimate this distance and respect it to ensure everyone's safety. With SafeDistance from Lopos – a spin-off from imec and Ghent University – it is child's play. The wearable device automatically measures and reports distance between employees and warns you if the required distance is not respected.
