Rombit unveils the Romware Covid Radius, a digital bracelet designed to enforce social distancing, while also enabling contact tracing. Simply put, whenever someone come closer than 6-feet (1.5-meters) to each other, they feel a vibration and receive a visual warning signal. Companies can also set an upper limit on the number of employees who may be inside a specific area at the same time and alert managers in real-time when the limit has been passed.

These digital bracelets connect using Ultra-Wideband, which does not require a data connection, so there is no localization or transfer of any personal data. However, a data connection can be used by the bracelets to trace the contacts of people who test positive for COVID-19. If this is activated, additional privacy features are also included, such as encryption and deletion of data after 14 days.

The new ‘1.5-metre economy’ depends on reliable aids. We are therefore making huge efforts to get the modified bracelet onto the mass market in large quantities so that we can contribute towards getting the economy safely restarted. There is already great international interest,” said Rombit CEO John Baekelmans.
