Italy develops ‘iFeel-You’ bracelet for social distancing
- The Genoa-based Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) has come up with iFeel-You, an intelligent bracelet which will help users respect social distancing rules.
- The bracelet has been developed as the measures for safeguarding against the coronavirus are gradually being lifted.
- The technology was launched at a video press conference which involved the participation of Liguria governor Giovanni Toti and IIT President Giorgio Metta.
- Metta claimed that the bracelet can measure social distance in a much more precise manner than a mobile app and highlighted that the bracelet did not track geolocation hence had little effect on privacy.
- He explained that the bracelet uses a radio signal only when another bracelet is approaching and does not use GPS hence cannot not keep track of the user’s locations.
- The bracelet starts to vibrate when another person wearing the same bracelet comes too close to the user.
- Metta declared that soon other features such as capability to measure body temprature and even caculate the users oxygen levels would be included in the bracelet.
