Product Description

Proximity Trace™ is an IoT solution consisting of wearable devices, TraceTags™, affixed to hardhats and gateways that collect TraceTag data. The TraceTag gives active feedback to a worker, in the form of a visual and audible alarm, so individuals know when to adjust their current distance to a proper social distance. It also collects worker interaction data passively for contact tracing should an individual test positive for COVID-19 or other contagions. That data is transmitted to a dashboard via the gateways at entrance/exit points on a worksite.

Competitive Advantage

This IoT solution requires very little infrastructure and can be set up in a single day. There is no dependency on client WIFI or internet and no location data recorded - on site or off site.

Impact on Construction

Proximity Trace™ allows our managers to easily conduct contact tracing on jobsites. Through its on-site data collection and intuitive dashboard, we can see all person-to-person interactions (instances and durations), so that if an outbreak occurs, we can immediately control the spread and mitigate risk.

Good for Project Managers

The Proximity Trace™ dashboard gives me instant visibility of my available workforce on-site and how they're interacting. This technology ensures that my field crews are working safely and adhering to appropriate social distancing guidelines.

The Final Word

by Blue Collar Labs


Proximity Trace™ by Triax is actively equipping jobsites with a timely, important tool for protecting field workers and controlling the spread of transmissible diseases on jobsites. Using the technology already available via Triax Spot-r, Proximity Trace™ leverages wearable sensors (TraceTags™) to monitor interactions (instances/duration) between jobsite workers. If a confirmed case of COVID-19 (or another contagion) is ever identified on-site, contractors can then review how the infected individual interacted with others. Since most construction sites are remaining open during the recent outbreak/spread of COVID-19, Proximity Trace™ by Triax is an important tool for ensuring worker safety. Even one confirmed case of COVID-19 can shut-down a jobsite and put many lives at risk. But with the data/insights provided by Proximity Trace™, jobsites can safely remain open while minimizing the impact of COVID-19.
