TDK’s MEMS based Ultrasonic Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors enable “Sonar on a Chip” in a tiny size package. From the time-of-flight from one sensor to another the distance is calculated and an alert can be issued to the user to maintain a safe distance from one another. Technology benefits:
- Ultra-low power enables proximity tags to operate for several days
- High range accuracy and low latency alert users when social distance boundaries are breached
- Wide FoV enables 360 degree monitoring with minimal sensors
- Robust range finding in any lighting condition and no false positives from workplace installed social barriers
In this complete hardware and software reference design, combining this with a BLE enabled MCU, realizes a complete social distancing solution including contact tracing and safe distancing for many users.
Staying focused is critical and Ultrasonic ToF technology helps you stay safe and let you know when you need to check your surroundings.
We are all comfortable in the office that’s why using Ultrasonic ToF technology will help your staff remember that staying safe is the most important.
Staying safe in a warehouse has always been a priority, and Ultrasonic ToF technology helps you maintain that standard with even less effort.
Focusing on schoolwork should be your only focus, and with our Ultrasonic ToF technology, distancing is one less thing to think about.
SMART PROXIMITY TAG
The user wears a device with the integrated Ultrasonic ToF sensor. When in close proximity with another tag, the device can send alerts and records the event for contact tracing.
Social Distancing Tag
A complete ultrasonic social distancing and contact tracing development kit that showcases Chirp’s CH101 ultrasonic Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor.
Need to prototype with more than one ToF sensor? The DK-CH101 includes one CH101 with the option to add up to four additional ultrasonic modules.
This easy to use module is ready for integration into your hardware designs. With different acoustic housings available to adjust your field of view, your solution will be able to detect the objects around it.
