Social distancing tech hits construction sites and factory floors
Construction workers across the U.S. may soon be required to wear a device on their hard hats that emits an alarm if they come within six feet of another employee at a job site. As they get closer, the alarm gets louder. The tool, called Proximity Trace, doesn’t just function as a loud reminder for workers to practice the social distancing guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It will also give employers a road map to perform contact tracing. The device relies on ultra high frequency radio signals, used in police and ham radios, to give employers a list of workers who came into contact with each other.
