Physical Distancing and
Contact Tracing
for Factory Enviornments

Safely keep production running

when COVID strikes your factory

Consistent Accuracy ~ Even in the most challenging factory environments

DistanceKeeper wearable sensor

Device works right out of the box and requires no infrastructure. Smaller than an iPhone, slip it in your pocket and you’re ready to go!

  • Senses proximity to other sensors and alarms user when a company-defined distance threshold is breached.
  • Pinpoint accuracy in challenging factory enviornments. Combining UWB radio frequency technology with sophisticated firmware, device is immune to multipath and noise which are both prevalent in typical factory.

DistanceKeeper Tracing Data

When a worker tests positive, at-risk coworkers can be traced and sent for testing. If any at-risk workers test positive, this process is repeated until the chain of COVID transmission is halted.

  • Our device’s consistent accuracy ensures tracing is based on good data: meaning untraced cases won’t slip through the cracks while number of traced workers is kept to a minimum.
  • Halt the chain of transmission without shutting down or interrupting production.
  • Break the trade-off that otherwise exists between employee safety and productivity.

“Good contact tracing is absolutely essential to break the chain of transmission”

President, Asia-Pacific Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infection

Proven Technology

Thousands of satisfied users in Italy ~ Now Available Here

Bleindoor launched the world’s first UWB-based contact tracing device in April 2020 and has already released its third-generation device with enhanced reliability, durability and battery life. It’s speed to market was made possible by an earlier peer-to-peer distance ranging device it had developed for an analogous application a few years prior to pandemic. DistanceKeeper is already used by thousands of workers in Italy and has been certified by Italy’s leading COVID-19 research center (Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli) as an effective tracing solution for halting the chain of virus transmission within organizations.

3rd generation DistanceKeeper is smaller and half the weight of an iPhone

Why our technology is the BEST solution for FACTORY Enviornments

Reliable Precision

Combining UWB technology with proprietary firmware perfected for factories, DistanceKeeper is immune to multipath and noise that is prevalent in factory environments.  Consistently achieves same 0.1m accuracy regardless of your environment.

User Privacy

Position and movement of people is not tracked, meaning no sensitive information is collected.  No barriers to adoption ~ even in unionized factories.

No Infrastructure

Position and movement of people is not tracked, meaning no sensitive information is collected.  No barriers to adoption ~ even in unionized factories.

Scalability & Density

Each sensor has the capacity to capture concurrent incidents of close contact involving up to 10 users.  And there is no limit to the number of sensors that can be deployed in a given factory.

Vibration Alarm for Noisy Environments

If your plant is noisy the devices can be set to warn the worker of close contact by a vibration alarm.

Selective Alarm Disablement

In cases where adjacent workers are close to one another, the alarm feature can be selectively disabled.  This means the alarm will only trigger when non-adjacent workers makes close contact.

The tracing Cycle

Data Capture

Each incident of close contact is captured and stored on the worker’s sensor.

Data Extraction

A piece of hardware called a “gateway” is typically installed at all exits and data is automatically extracted from each worker’s device as they leave for the day.

Data Housing

Data moves from the gateway to another device (PC or other) in an automated fashion.  Automated transfer to the cloud can also be done at the customer’s discretion.

Contact Tracing

When a worker tests positive, at-risk co-workers can be identified through data analysis.
