Smarter Social Distancing

Feb. 18, 2021
Casella's smart-tag, a flexible social distancing solution, gives the wearer configurable vibratory and audible alerts with a battery life of up to 5 days.

A technology-forward solution to simplify social distancing in the workplace, the Orbi-Trace smart tag is a flexible social distancing solution that provides simple proximity alerts all the way up to effective contact tracing.


The body-worn Orbi-Trace smart tag is simple to operate, with a stop/start input and a single LED power alert. It gives the wearer fully configurable vibration and audible alerts whenever a 6-ft safe distance is breached and can operate indoors and out, with a battery life of up to five days.


The sophisticated Ultra-wideband (UWB) connectivity is accurate in detecting distances down to 4-in. accuracy making it 20 x more accurate than Bluetooth. The connectivity will not cause interference with WiFi or other RF technologies.


When combined with the wall-mounted anchor unit and proprietary, free-to-use Infection Insights software, the Orbi-Trace can be used to generate connection graphs and risk and contact assessments, should an employee test positive for Covid-19. Adding additional anchor units to the system expands this to full real-time contract tracking, giving users access to heat-maps of areas where social-distancing may be consistently challenging and a full contract tracing history, making enforcing controls much more straightforward. For those mediating employee privacy concerns, the Orbi-Trace system is also fully GDPR compliant.
