Sodar Tool to Helps Android Smartphone Users Maintain Social Distancing

Smartphone users have a new way to maintain their distance – a device that lets them know that when people are recommending epidemiological guidelines, they are close.

The Google-developed Sother tool available this week taps into Android smartphone cameras to place users in the center of a white circle with a radius of about two meters or 6.5 feet.

Circles are designed to move around with users, keeping circles in the center. Users receive a visual alert when they are in a potentially dangerous area.

According to Sother California-based Internet firm, Android works on smartphones via a Google-made Chrome browser, which supports augmented reality.

A message on the website states, “This experiment uses WebXR (Application Program Interface) to visualize 2-meter social-distancing guidelines in your environment.”

The tool came out of an “Experiment with Google” project on the technology hack to help combat the Coronara virus epidemic.
