Mobile mesh technology creates communication networks and aids social distancing

14 July 2020

Wyld Networks has launched a new mobile mesh technology to improve operational efficiencies. It can be built into mobile apps?and IoT devices and uses virtual geozones to manage access, collect data, deliver location-aware content or safety information, and monitor social distancing.

Wyld mesh networking harnesses the power of mobile devices by connecting smartphones directly to other smartphones and IoT devices without the need for cellular 4G/5G or Wi-Fi. Combined with Wyld’s Fusion platform, the company can create infrastructure-lite wireless networks with real-time, location-aware content delivery and analytics. Data simply finds the quickest and easiest route by hopping between phones.
 
Social distancing monitoring can be implemented by creating personal 1 or 2m dynamic geozones around staff and visitors. This provides an accurate picture of how social distancing is being practiced, allowing for better planning of site layouts and workflow schedules. Subject to corporate policy and privacy, employers would also have the ability to quickly alert others who have been in close contact with anyone tested positive for COVID-19.

The system can also create virtual geozones around complete sites, factory buildings and depots as well as more physically dangerous or restricted areas. Anyone approaching a physical zone can be sent a message instantly to let them know if they are able to enter and provide guidance or regulations that relate to that particular area. 
 
A mesh network can be deployed more quickly and cost-efficiently than traditional models - even in remote areas or underground industrial environments. If one device leaves the network, it does not cause a break as traffic is routed through multiple paths in a mesh.
