There is no doubt that our way of living will be different after COVID-19.
New prevention mechanisms are required to be deployed in order to help the society recover as much as possible of the former way of living.
For instance, office buildings and shopping centers are places where people coexist in small spaces and therefore are subject to additional control to minimize infections.
The Everpaths platform is a location and wayfinding solution that helps building tenants to deal with business capacity control and social distance recommendations.
With Everpaths you can count the number of people in the building, in a room or in any given area and send push messages to the users when detecting a potential risk.
By checking this counters against the desired maximum capacity, Everpaths can send alarms messages to the user’s smartphones when detecting high occupancy situations.
At the building, users must be running in their smartphones one of the two available apps for the Everpaths platform, either the full app with user interface, or the silent tracker app in background.
The tracker app periodically sends to the cloud the smartphone location, and the full app in addition also offers indoor maps, routes and contents to the user.
Both apps work detecting bluetooth beacons to resolve the indoor location. These beacons are associated to Everpaths nodes. A node is a small area where someone could be, for example inside a circle of 1.5m radius. The circle size is function of how many beacons you deploy. The more beacons the smaller the circle is.
This is how it works:
