ProGlove Connect Proximity App


To help workers—on the assembly line or in the distribution center—maintain a proper distance from each other, the ProGlove Connect Proximity app provides an additional layer of feedback on an Android device alone or when paired with a ProGlove MARK barcode scanner which rests on the employee's hand.


When personally fitted with the MARK wearable scanner and paired Android device, workers coming within close proximity of each other are alerted. The alerts come to the workers via a full array of options on the wearable scanner including audio sound, optic LED light and haptic vibration signals. This is important in a busy or noisy shop floor environment where an Android alert alone in a pocket could be easily overlooked.


ProGlove Connect Proximity is in beta and is in phase one of the company's software initiative to help its customers manage safe social distancing in the workplace. In phase two, device-level proximity data will be made available in ProGlove's software application. Managers can then easily identify bottlenecks in the warehouse with this information and plan for modifications to layouts, schedules or workflows.


The app upgrade is available for free to current ProGlove customers. For new customers, the app is a valuable feature on top of the advantages of a rugged lightweight wearable barcode scanner for safety and efficiency.
