Nowadays, people in industrialized nations spend 90% of their time indoors: these lifestyle habits have an impact on our health.
The Covid-19 pandemic has turned the spotlight on the need to live in healthy environments: several studies have shown, for example, that high levels of CO2 (linked to overcrowding and poor ventilation) are associated with an increased risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2.
The MeshCube platform, with its wireless sensor system for monitoring air quality (temperature, humidity, CO2),
guarantees continuous control of the healthiness of the rooms, with a consequent improvement in the comfort of those who use them.
In order to contain the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and reduce the risk of contagion, it is advisable to adopt
behaviors that guarantee distancing between people, avoiding gatherings.
IoT technologies can be a useful aid, through the adoption of personal devices capable of monitoring and tracking
contact events and alerting in alert situations: SafeX Tracer is the wearable device that increases the safety of employees
and visitors thanks to the control of the distance between the operators
in the workplace (social distancing) and contact tracing (contact tracing). It can also be used as a personal identification
device, integrating it into company location and access control systems.
Bluetooth LE beacons are the reference enabling technology for implementing Indoor Navigation solutions inside buildings.
Thanks to the signal from the nearby beacons, it is possible to locate the user's smartphone via dedicated apps.
In the field of Smart Buildings it is essential to provide Indoor Navigation solutions on smartphones. It becomes
possible for users to use an easy and intuitive tool that allows them to find a path inside the building (to reach an outpatient
clinic in a hospital, a room in a museum, a meeting room in an office,. ..) or use contextualized content. For building managers it is
possible to enrich the user experience and obtain fundamental information to optimize the management and use of spaces.
