IoT Employee Safety solution

Omer Arad


How a First-of-a-kind initiative that was conceived in Haifa has led us to develop and implement the Employee Safety solution prototype that was deployed at a client site in Canada where temperature drops down to below-freezing level of -40C.
In this lecture we will tell the story of this research project, elaborate on its challenges and difficulties, and how we had to deploy technologies in an unconventional Oil & Gas refinery environment. We will showcase a live demo of this solution using wearable devices & Beacons.
