Frome company launches social distancing monitoring system to keep consumers safe as lockdown relaxes

Story posted on

A Frome technology company has launched a new social distancing monitoring system that will enable organisations to re-open public and enclosed areas safely as the country begins its long journey out of lockdown.

Level Five founder and CEO, Alex Lawrence-Berkeley.

Level Five Supplies, based at Welshmill Hub, is using state-of-the-art technology based on the most up-to-date driverless car research.

“The new application allows organisations to measure the distance between any individuals in real-time, along with speed, trajectory, and a count of other pedestrians in an area, whether indoors, outdoors, a simple courtyard or complex shopping mall,” says Alex Lawrence-Berkeley, founder of Level Five Supplies.

“It has already been used in Asia which is further along the COVID-19 trajectory. The South Korean Government has installed the system in and around municipal buildings and infrastructure, including airports.

“Social distance monitoring is becoming the buzz phrase of getting out and beginning the long painful journey back to what might approach normality, at least before a mass-produced vaccine is available.  It is therefore critical that where the public coalesce in densely populated areas – shopping centres, reception and lobby areas, airports and at gatherings – that social distancing is measured in order to limit the spread of the virus.

“Safeguarding will be the next big trend and this system will enable organisations to demonstrate to the Government and their customers that they are being responsible.”

Level Five Supplies was founded by Alex Lawrence-Berkeley in November 2018 to help small companies and academics get access to autonomy-enabling technology at an affordable price point. It operates across Europe, working with cutting-edge manufacturers to supply the best products and solutions to developers working on robotics and autonomous vehicles.

They are based at Welshmill Hub and were due to move to Frome Business Park last month, a move that is still on the cards.
