At least that’s the idea that sprang from the Linc Technology Partner’s team. Anticipating a gradual return to work which will be a headache for companies and administrations, the company proposes the idea of a connected object to keep our distance from our colleagues.

Keep 2 metres apart or wear a mask all day long. These measures are starting to make human resources departments and managers sweat. How are they going to enforce these rules and make sure they are followed by everyone, all the time?
Linc Technology Partner has set itself the task of developing a physical distancing device. Materialized in the form of an intelligent collar with light and sound alerts, the device provides real-time information on the distances between collar wearers.
- Green / no sound: a distance of at least 3m is respected = no risk
- Orange / 1 beep: the distance is between 2 and 3m = if you get closer to the other collar wearer you have to put the mouth guard on
- Red / 1 beep: you are now less than 2 meters away from a colleague both of you must wear your mouth guards.
Call for interest
The company has just launched a call for interest to receive as much feedback as possible and study the feasibility and viability of this product as soon as possible. Here’s the call:
“The prototype of the device is built and functional, but given the need to launch significant production, Linc Technology Partner is keen to urgently assess the market interest to decide whether to launch its production. The final price should be between 16 to 20 EUR excl. vat and deliveries should be possible sometime during June. Linc Technology Partner invites any potentially interested company, administration or institution to devote 2 minutes to a questionnaire to help us decide whether or not to start production. Access the survey here. The survey is of course non-binding. As time is very tight to guarantee a delivery in June, interested parties are invited to respond as soon as possible.”
