IIM, Kozhikode based incubatee start-up launches wearable gadget for implementing social distancing norms

@mygovindia
In our series on Atmanirbhar Bharat today, we bring you a special story on a wearable gadget for implementing social distancing norms.
 
Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode based incubatee start-up has come up with a unique user friendly wearable device that alarms proximity for helping implement social distancing norms.
 
Known as the Veli Band, this wearable device has been developed by Qual5 India Pvt. Ltd, a startup co-founded by woman entrepreneur Kiranmayee.
 
The start up was mentored and funded by IIMK’s business incubator and entrepreneurship development center.
 
Veli Band helps implement social distancing and location and contact tracing which can help organizations comply with social distancing norms during the current pandemic situation.
 
Veli Band momentarily vibrates, sounds buzzer, and flashes LED simultaneously to notify wearers that another band is within 3 feet.
 
The device to be worn on the wrist can anonymously keep track of interactions with other devices and thus not only help in maintaining a safer workplace but also aid in tracking employee movements in real time.
 
Veli band is omni directional, comes with a rechargeable battery and uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology for detection.
