Henkel adopts Kinexon's ultra-wideband (UWB) sensors to conduct contact tracing in its manufacturing facilities amid the pandemic

May 10, 2021 | Case Study

With the COVID-19 global pandemic still raging in much of the world and even worsening in some regions, factories producing essential goods need to keep running and maintain their prime operational capacities. With current automation technologies, many workers have to be on the production floors to ensure smooth operations. While stakeholders reduce the maximum occupancy to avoid unnecessary close contact among workers, they still need tools to ensure the rules are followed and identify risky events. UWB sensors are a candidate technology to keep the workforce safe through enforcing social distancing and tracing contacts. They can measure precise locations and track movements. Compared with widely used cameras, they have better privacy features without the involvement of images.
