The COVID-19 pandemic has been with us for over a year already, and the world is gradually getting used to the new reality: some employees return to their offices, people go on vacation and spend time with friends. But the risk of contracting coronavirus is still out there.
One of the main WHO recommendations for preventing the spread of COVID-19 is to maintain a social distance of at least 1 meter. However, when implementing this recommendation, difficulties arise:
Telematics suits these tasks perfectly. An excellent example is the Teltonika GH5200 personal tracker. In combination with Wialon, this device arms a user with a full-fledged solution for monitoring social distancing and tracking contacts with the COVID-19 patients in any offices, institutions, and organizations where people are in contact with one another – at a construction site, in a hospital, etc.
Let's take a closer look at this solution.
The complex solution by Teltonika and Wialon works as follows: the personal tracker GH5200 detects the nearest device of the same model and makes a sound if it is too close (a user specifies the allowed distance in the device settings). The device transmits all information to Wialon that collects this data into a full picture.
With the help of Teltonika GH5200 and Wialon, a client solves two key tasks:
To start working with the solution, you need to activate the Proximity detection function in the device and configure the units in Wialon afterward.
You can find how to do this in the instructions for setting up units in Wialon to control social distance using Teltonika GH5200.
We talked in detail about setting up and operating the device during a joint webinar with Teltonika. From the video, you will also learn the details and other features of this personal tracker, such as SOS buttons, a fall detector, etc. You can watch the recording on our YouTube channel:
