ProGlove is responding to customers’ needs for a smart solution to help workers maintain proper social distance. Leveraging its MARK family of wearable barcode scanners and ProGlove Connect app for Android, ProGlove has released a product upgrade that activates proximity sensing for frontline workers.
When personally equipped with the MARK wearable scanner and paired Android device, workers coming within close proximity of each other are alerted. The alerts come to the workers via a full array of options including audio sound, optic LED light, and haptic vibration signals. This is important in a busy or noisy shop floor environment where an Android alert in a pocket could be easily overlooked.
“We tested the MARK upgrade in-house and it works beautifully. We’re now rolling it out on our own assembly line,” confirmed Konstantin Brunnbauer, VP of Production for ProGlove.
