Although many commercial activities are stopped, those of vital importance are continuing to operate, such as production, some forms of consultancy but above all people must make supplies of food in safe conditions. Fortunately also in this case, the respectful and intelligent use of technology can be a formidable ally to help people to maintain an acceptable social distancing, thanks to non-invasive and privacy-friendly monitoring tools, like Social Distancing Monitoring. A new application for V-App Enterprise that thanks to the use of the Cisco Meraki smart cameras allow to monitor the distance between people in a given area, sending alerts when a so-called “collision” occurs, ie when two or more people are closer to each other than the suggested distance, also monitoring real-time people’s concentration with the help of interactive heat maps. A multi-channel alert system conveys alerts on the most popular instant messaging platforms such as Messenger, Webex, Telegram and WhatsApp, or through email, sms and screens or sound devices.
