As of 1 June, many museums in the Netherlands have reopened to a limited extent: a maximum of 30 people can enter at the same time and they must be kept at least 1.5 meters apart. From July 1, this capacity will be increased to 100 people, if there are no problems. Under which conditions this will happen is not known. In any case, museums and events will have to ensure that the 1.5 meters is maintained.

Many museums are taking measures to provide visitors and employees with a safe environment. Find out how the Covid Buzzer can help.

Maximum capacity and time slots

The most obvious measure is to limit visitor numbers at the gate: visitors sign up for a time slot. A museum usually calculates the capacity per time slot on the basis of the available space. In any case, until 1 July, 10m2 must be available per visitor. The average duration of a museum visit is then also important: on the basis of its capacity and the average duration, the museum has an indication of the number of time slots required and the mutual overlap of these time slots.

Irregular spread

However, visitors will not be regularly scattered around the building. It is likely to be busy at some parts of the building: at entrances, wardrobes, toilets, museum shops, etc. And the same applies to the absolute top pieces: the pieces that all visitors want to see and want to view for quite some time. Museums have created walking routes and have made capacity planning that takes into account crowds at the ‘hot spots’ and where an extra security guard must be placed.

Self-regulating power and more capacity with the Covid Buzzer

Offering “experience” is an important condition for a successful museum visit. Visitors also want to feel welcome in Covid time. Many visitors will understand that for safety reasons they may be led through 1.5 rows along the top piece with a distance of 1.5 meters. For the rest, they will prefer to design their visit as much as possible themselves.

When visitors are enjoying themselves, they may forget to keep a distance. In addition, there will unfortunately always be visitors who do not want to take other visitors into account at all.

The Covid Buzzer helps visitors keep 1.5 meters social distance. By having every visitor wear a Covid Buzzer, these problems are solved. This goes off when visitors come within a radius of 1.5 meters. The Covid Buzzer can also offer a solution for the masterpieces, by letting visitors ensure that they keep a distance of 1.5 meters. And employees can address those who do not obey the rules several times.

Covid Buzzer: Simple, reliable and no privacy issues

 The simple solution to keep a safe distance between each other. Everyone in the office, factory or elsewhere where many people gather, wears a buzzer. As soon as the buzzer meets another buzzer within a radius of 1.5 meters, a warning signal follows. The buzzer is completely anonymous, so there are no privacy issues involved. Thanks to UWB technology, the Covid buzzer has 10 cm accuracy.

Government rules after July 1; proof for 1.5 meters

As mentioned, the regulations are still unclear after 1 July. Much will depend on the extent to which museums and other visitors attracting institutions appear to be able to comply with the 1.5-meter provisions.

With the Covid Buzzer, museums show that they are actually able to adhere to the 1.5-meter stipulation.

Container thefts are increasingly common. “What should you do with such a thing?” headlines the newspaper article. Recently, the police found a number of containers that were once stolen. Tracy, the IOT track and trace device, can help you.

Why should someone want to steal a container?

So, why should someone want to steal a container? For an outsider, it might sound a bit strange. Customers see the container mostly as a kind of large, metal ‘box’ to dispose waste. For a container company, the hiring of the container means trust in your logistic solutions. But for a thief, a container means an easy to steal loot: it’s already packed and stands ready to pick-up!

Stealing is that simple: the scrap metal booty is already packed!

Stealing containers with scrap metal is especially popular. That does not have to mean that a container actually contains scrap metal or is completely full: the thief’s hope for loot is enough. Stealing a container is pretty simple: all the thief needs is a truck. He can put the container on the back with a cable or grab arm in no time. This theft means a major loss for companies: a container can easily cost 5 to 10 thousand euros, beside the eventual value of the cargo. And possibly the trust the customer has in you.

All that most companies do untill now is to share on social media camera images of their container or the truck that was stolen. Hoping to find the thief. Or at least to prevent a recurrence.

Tracy IoT helps: track and trace

• Perimeter detection

• Track and trace on container: Immediate theft signal

Perimeter detection

Tracy checks whether persons enter the site. When “strange” people enter the site, a signal is immediately triggered. Besides, Tracy monitors the movement of people and assets within the perimeter. Tracy uses Ultra Wide Band (UWB). One of the big advantages of UWB is its accuracy, so you know immediately where to look.

Track and trace on container: Immediate theft signal

When there are movements around a container, a signal goes off. If these are “strange”, for example at late times when nobody should be present, you can take immediate action. If the container is taken along anyway, it can be detected by the UWB signal.

Many offices have been closed or working on less power due to Covid-19. Now many offices want to open again. Last months, most employers have worked at home. There are employers who want to stay working at home, but most miss the energy of working at the office and the efficiency of a direct contact. And the latest gossip is juicier, the bad jokes funnier with an in-real-life cup of coffee together. How to re-open your office safely? Find out how the Covid Buzzer, a social distance badge, helps!

Creating a safe desk

But first, let’s take a look which measures offices take for re-opening. Most of their solutions consist of creating a safe desk. The policy that employees no longer have their own workplace are being drawn back. The limit of social distance (in the Netherlands 1.5 meter) is guaranteed by creating safe distances between desks. And sometimes, a transparent screen is placed between desks.

Creating a safe social distance in the building

So, there are many solutions possible for creating a Covid-19 safe desk. But… employers spend a lot of time by walking through the building. Going to desk. But also, to meetings, company restaurants, toilets and yes, the coffee machine. It’s there when people cross each other. And from the art of their function, facility managers are walking through the building all the time: such as receptionists, cleaners, security, maintenance workers.

Some offices are using tape for walking routes. But soon, after it’s there for some hour’s employers don’t notice the tape anymore. Especially when you’re busy and your mind is on the coming meeting.

Covid Buzzer: alarm goes off at 1.5-meter proximity

How to attend your employers they’re less than 1.5-meter proximity? This simple solution to keep a safe distance between each other. Everyone in the office, factory or elsewhere where many people gather, wears a badge. As soon as the badge meets another badge within a radius of 1.5 meters, a warning signal follows. The badge is completely anonymous, there are no privacy issues involved.

Automotive is one of most important sectors in the development of IoT. This interest comes from Industry as Consumers as well. That’s why governments in Europe and elsewhere are supporting these new developments.

Benefits

  • A longer lifetime for your equipment with Preventive maintenance
  • Be in control and optimize your processes
  • Optimize your just-in-time management and get more value by delivering garantuees
  • Increase security for your cargo and your equipment

A longer lifetime for your equipment with Preventive maintenance

With IoT, you can create new ways of automotive and do more within the same budget. Automotive is an industry which deals with heavy circumstances like dust, wind, heat and pressure. So, it’s important to recognize if the equipment is still working properly.  With IoT, you can predict and prevent equipment failure by monitoring product wear and replacement rates.  As such, you improve the reliability of your assets and reduce downtime. And if you recognize little faults, you can solve them easily before they have become big and expensive problems.

Be in control and optimise your processes and increase value

On the other hand, you can add value for yourself and for your clients as well by monitor and interconnect your devices. To monitor and control one device in itself (like the development of self-driving cars). But also IoT delivers new possibilities to interconnect automotive in other grids. An example: a smart grid, where an office notices that a visitor will arrive in some minutes and already appoints a parking place to this visitor. By creating a network in which you know which device is on which location, you can optimize your just-in-time management and get more value by being able to deliver guarantees to your clients.

Security

Security has long time being disregarded, but is becoming one of the more important issues in Automotive. And with reason: think about the hack on harbour terminals

The last months, due to Covid-19 factories, offices and institutions have been closed or been working on less power. Now, factories and offices want to open again. In the meantime, it is clear that Covid-19 will be with us for a long time. Employers want a safe as possible environment for their employees and visitors, as well as healthcare institutions and tourist and cultural providers. In addition, companies have a legal obligation to ensure a safe environment. And to take measures where necessary, so that the social distance is respected.

The Social Distance Badge is the device with which the 1.5-meter distance can be maintained. Simple, safe and without privacy issues

Work and recreation in times of Corona

For whom, what, why?

  • Factories
  • Construction and installation sites
  • Logistics: ports, warehouses
  • Transport (train, airports, busses)
  • Offices and Facility management
  • Healthcare
  • Touristic, sports and cultural sites and events

Factories

Factories and offices want to open again. Where offices can still choose by letting employees work from home, factories do not have this luxury. At assembly lines, many people are working together, concentrated to carry out their work. Then the 1.5 meter social distance may be ignored.

Construction and installations, logistics and transport

Employees are also unable to work from home during construction and installations. Many employees work side by side and close together. The employee will often need his focus to perform his work accurately and pay attention to other forms of safety, for example to prevent him from slipping or falling down. Employees can then forget to maintain the 1.5 meter social distance. The Social Distance badge helps to remind the employee to keep distance.

Offices and facility management

In the last months, many employees of offices have worked at home. But for social bonding and the well-being of employees, it’s important that employees are regularly present in the office. And not every office has the option to offer working from home.

Employees walk from workplace to company restaurant and meeting and back again. And meanwhile, facility managers walk through the entire building. Then it is important to keep the 1.5-meter distance, since 1 employee can spread the Corona-19 virus in the entire building.

Healthcare

For some groups, Covid-19 is particularly dangerous: the elderly and people who already have a condition. It is important for them that social distance is maintained. By clients, staff and visitors. In addition, some residents must be reminded to keep 1.5 meters.

Tourist, Cultural, Recreational, Sports sites and events

Visitors get mixed up, are enthusiastic and forget to keep their distance. Or are there visitors who do not take the 1.5 meter into account and thus pose a risk. With the Social Distance Badge, you can safely open again.


Guaranteed 1,5 meters distance

All employees (and customers or visitors) receive the SD badge upon entrance. This is worn around the wrist or neck. The SD Badge continuously scans its environment for other badges via a so-called Ultra Wide Band signal. This signal provides the most accurate distance measurement. As soon as 2 (or more) badges are less than 1.5 meters apart, they give a warning sound and/ or light signal. This allows everyone to keep enough distance. As soon as there are another safe 1.5 meters, the signal will stop.

How biomedics can benefit from IoT:

  • Improve the quality and effectiveness of your medical treatment with IoT and thus the quality of life for your patient
  • Do you want to spend your time on patients who really need it? Treat more patients in a better way in the same time within the same budget
  • Improve and fasten your patient’s recovery… with knowledge of results of the treatment of thousands of patients
  • Be on the forefront of IoT and help your patients in ways that were not possible before
  • Better measurement with clean data
  • Security: get control of your patients’ privacy

Sensor devices improve the quality of treatment and thus of life itself. Through prevention, medical treatment itself or therapy. Sensors solutions help to improve life and can even help to save lives. No wonder medical devices are one of the fastest growing sectors in IoT.

Households want to benefit from the newest possibilities IoT devices deliver. For better health and independence as much and as long as possible. Sensor devices can especially help people with chronic diseases, elderly people and people who need constant supervision.

For medical service providers, sensor devices can help to provide the best service as possible in times of increasing medical demand but also on a growing focus on costs. So, budgets must be spent in the best way as possible. Sensors and other IoT devices can help medical facilities to treat more patients in a better way and more efficiently.

How Advanced Solutions helps

Our services can help you in the following ways:

  • IoT solutions
  • Sensor measurement
  • Security

IoT solutions

Our systems prevent accidents from happening and reduce the response time of healthcare professionals.

Sensor measurement

In biomedical applications, sensors are already used in a lot of ways. EMG and ECG are just some examples. For making the right decisions on treatment, the measurement has to be accurate. However, most sensor data suffer from the following problems:

  • Powerline interference, measurement noise and glitches
  • Baseline wander and offsets from analog instrumentation electronics
  • Biomedical sensors are sending weak signals. So, in some cases, those signals have to be strengthened before analysis is possible.

Sometimes the filtering is done in the hardware of the medical equipment. However, these are very costly solutions. And most of the times, a simpler solution and thus less costly solution is what is being sort after.

ASN Consultancy is the modern way of working of algorithm design to separate the wanted sensor signals from the undesirable unwanted signals. So, you can analyse and take action on clean and accurate sensor data.

Competition on costs is ever increasing. Meanwhile, customers are more demanding in their expectations. In 2024, global smart sensor market will have a value of $80 billion. In others words: become part of the future or become obsolete!

Challenges Asset Managers

Asset managers are faced with the following challenges:

  • Asset managers demand huge cost savings
  • Tightening of budgets for maintenance programmes
  • Less service disruptions and customer complaints
  • Increasing demands from users
  • No Control and optimal use of my assets
  • Risk of hacking by terrorists
  • Remote firmware updates

With IoT, you can give your equipment a longer lifetime and thus save on repair and replacement costs.

Your customers will become more satisfied with your services. With solutions which weren’t possible until now, products can ‘think’ for their users. Like: the health of the lamp and power quality of street lights, refrigerators which will signal to a car that owner is out of milk, a space on a parking lot is reserved for the visitor when he’s close to the office etcetera.

And the other way around: remember the first time you went in a hotel which had Wi-Fi and you thought: “great”! You’ve probably forgotten; nowadays, not having Wi-Fi has since long became a standard. In IOT, users raise the expectations and will be dissatisfied with devices which do not help them.

A dashboard helps you to view in one glance which assets are working properly and which are probably in need of repair or replacement. Further, you learn when, where and how intensely your assets are being used, so you use your assets more efficiently.

In a world of connected devices, security is very important. Hackers will try to break in: to steal, to cause harm or to shut down your devices. Without security, hackers can make their entry from anywhere: from one of your devices, but also an unsecured device from one of your employee’s at home. So, in the world of IOT, security of these devices is key.
