Kramer launches Corona Tag at Gitex

Kramer has launched a new compact wearable device at this year’s Gitex exhibition which is designed to eliminate the need for site-wide shutdowns in case of a Covid-19 infection in workplaces, schools or any public venues. Corona Tag works by quickly identifying high-risk contacts to help maintain business continuity and prevent from unnecessarily isolating large crowds. The device monitors social distancing by tracking the distance and exposure time between tags using low-energy Bluetooth signals. It operates automatically when worn and reportedly stays active for months without needing a recharge.

Kramer states that Corona Tag is designed for privacy in accordance with GDPR and stringent user privacy requirements. No personal data such as names and locations visited is stored in the tags. The only information they do record is other tags’ physical MAC address and the time spent together in proximity. Retrieving the information from the tags can be done only by a certified administrator via a specially designated USB cable. The device also does not rely on any external hardware, third-party technologies or communication signals, which alleviates the challenge of needing mobile phones or connections such as GPRS, Wi-Fi or GPS. Corona Tag cannot receive data from any other devices.

When someone tests positive for Covid-19, an approved company administrator uses the MAC address to access information about all the tags that have come into contact with that person over the last two weeks – so that only the people who are at risk of infection can be notified to take the correct precautions. The administrator can set the distance and length of encounter parameters to be instantly responsive to ever-changing local regulations.

Operationally, no special infrastructure or training to use the administration software is required. The devices store information for two weeks and no central databases of any encounters are created.
