Social Distancing Project / Public projector

Social Distancing Project
Social Distancing Project

The Social Distancing Projector is designed for use in public areas during the COVID-19 outbreak period. The main function of SDP is projecting cycles with a diameter of 6 feet around people in a certain public area(both indoor and outdoor areas) that visualizes the social distancing policy. When a projected social distancing cycle intersects with others, the color or shape will change, reminding people that they are too close. The SDP provides a more interactive and immersive way to keep social distancing.
