The circles will then become red if a person gets closer than six feet to someone else, alerting them that they are not an appropriate distance away. Backed with depth sensors, the software is ready to define accurate distance measurements between personnel, preventing clusters of individuals from forming.
Ever since the coronavirus crisis began, Amazon has been facing criticism over its disappointing efforts to protect employees, particularly those working in the warehouse. The device sounds an alarm with a loud beeping noise and the light flashes when workers come too close to one another. At least eight warehouse workers have died from the virus. "We've heard that employees find value in getting immediate visual feedback, and site leaders are welcoming another safety measure", read a blog post announcing Distance Assistant. To improve the solution, Amazon engineers set out to use augmented reality to create a "magic-mirror-like tool" to helps associates see their physical distancing from others.

"The self-contained device requires only a standard electrical outlet, and can be quickly deployed to building entrances and other high-visibility areas", it said. The company is also beginning the process to open-source the software and AI behind the solution so that anyone can create their own version of it.
For now, Amazon has deployed the Distance Assistance units "at a handful of our buildings", but positive feedback from employees means they are going to be deployed at hundreds of locations in the coming weeks.
