Indian companies Holisol Logistics and Evoxyz Software have developed a Bluetooth-based method for effective practising of social distancing at Holisol’s fulfilment centres.
 
Bluetooth technology is being used to help monitor the safety norm of social distancing between the co-workers at the workplace.
 
Holisol has implemented a tag-based ID card for the co-workers and Bluetooth readers inside the facility to receive data from the tags.
 
In case of a breach, the system raises an alarm in the mobile app of the co-worker and simultaneously alerts the site supervisor and manager. The system logs and maintains detailed reports allowing constant monitoring, analysis and feedback. The data can also be used for contact tracing if needed.
 
A successful trial has been completed in one of Holisol's fulfilment centres in Delhi and now the company is gearing up to roll it out at its other facilities in India.
 
"In this unprecedented time, safety of our co-workers is of prime importance to us,” said Rahul Dogar, co-founder of Holisol Logistics. “With the help of this newly developed technology, we will be able to ensure the safety of our co-workers by practising social distancing. I believe that the requirement of social distancing is here to stay for long. The use of technology would help us to remind our co-workers to maintain it for their own and others' safety.”
 
He thanked Evoxyz for understanding the requirements and quickly configuring the technology.
 
“We will deploy this technology to all our operational sites including our offices once they reopen after lockdown and are happy to offer it to others who are interested,” he said. “Fighting Covid-19 is a common goal for everyone."
 
Headquartered in Delhi, Holisol has a workforce of more than 250.
 
Evoxyz is a tech start-up founded in 2014 and based out of Gurugram. Evolutions 1.0 is its flagship platform which has the capability of location tracing via Bluetooth technology using Evotag wearables and smartphones. This contactless technology is being used as a safety enabler in enterprises for tracking humans and assets, and for generating alerts.
