Amazon wants its employees to maintain social distance with its Distance Assistant. Based on augmented reality technology, the system encourages employees in this regard.
How does Amazon Distance Assistant work?
Nowadays, when gradually normalization begins, companies are implementing innovative practices in order not to lose control. Amazon signed an important effort to maintain the 2-meter social distance proposed by the World Health Organization.
Using augmented reality technology, the system draws circles of 2 meters in diameter around the employees. The circle around those who fit in social distance is painted in green. The circle of those who break the distance is marked in red.
These circles can be seen with the screen placed at different points within the company. The system, which works as a reminder, aims to maintain social distance within the company. It is stated that the system, which received positive feedback from the employees in the first place, will be installed in hundreds of points in the company in the coming days. Porter, one of the Amazon executives, said that nothing is more important than the health of their employees and they will continue to keep them safe.
