WRLD3D and SMARTCITTI launch social distancing app ‘SafeDistance’ to help workplaces manage the ‘new normal’
WRLD3D and SMARTCITTI, two innovators in the 3D digital visualisation and smart workplace solutions space, have joined forces to launch the social distancing navigation app - SafeDistance. The app has been specifically designed to meet the needs of people re-entering places of work or education, whilst ensuring that organisations can operate as smoothly as possible, as they navigate through the ‘new normal.’
SafeDistance is a highly automated smart app, which helps people to navigate buildings safely, while adhering to social distancing rules. The app creates a digital twin of the workplace, senses real-time movement inside a building, and assesses risk, so that employees can feel safe to move around freely, significantly reducing the impact on their operations and mental health.
SafeDistance provides business leaders who are responsible for planning and executing a post-lockdown return to their buildings, an application that designs and delivers safe re-entry to the workplace. This aligns strongly with government’s social distancing regulations to keep employees and visitors safe.
Dr. Mohammed Al-Husban, Head of Happiness & UX at SMARTCITTI said, “Employee mental health and wellbeing is so important at the best of times, but people are naturally going to be nervous going back into the workplace - especially if they’re part of a large workforce. We created SafeDistance to help put their minds at rest, but also to encourage a sense of community at this incredibly stressful time, bringing life to the adage we’re all in this together.
SafeDistance main features include Indoor navigation system, Happy to Help, Live desk allocation and Emotional reporting.
According to a statement from the company, SafeDistance is for organisations to license and roll out for their teams, whether employees or students, under the guidance of a SafeDistance Smart Workplace consultant to ensure that full training is undertaken and that the product is used correctly and effectively.
