Press Release - SmartCone Technologies teams up with SIMS for social distancing and safety device.

Keep people at a safe distance with automatic monitoring and detection though SIMS by SmartCone personal proximity device.

Ottawa, Canada March 30, 2020 SmartCone Technologies, Inc. and SIMS LLC., are teaming up to bring SIMS: Surrounding Intelligent Motion Sensor device to market. This device will be featured as part of SmartCone’s ProxiShield product line up to bring advanced warning of proximity breaches within a pre-set distance of individual via a small wearable device.

In these trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jason Lee, CEO SmartCone Technologies has launched the SmartCone 19 Task Force initiative and has been looking for technology that can offer aid to real problems people are encountering. “There has never been a better time to partner up and push to market a safety device of this caliber” said Jason. “Acting as an extra set of eyes, those working on the front lines can enforce safe social distancing requirements for non line of sight, providing a sense of security.”

From field workers to nurses or doctors, delivery drivers and grocers, the list goes on. The SIMS device is based on camera pixel technology that alerts the user to a potential presence or threat, approaching them from behind. It’s a rear facing device that attaches to clothing, belts, helmets etc. When a sustained presence is detected within the pixel array, an audible and vibrational alarm is activated giving the user the ability to respond. “ My vision is to create a device that will allow people to be alerted when someone or something is approaching from behind and allow them time to react so no one will be assaulted without knowing or being alerted “ said Sean Siembab, co-founder and inventor of SIMS, LLC.

This partnership will offer real-world solutions to many use cases from front line workers in addressing COVID-19 to public safety workers, enterprise companies (armored truck, security, roadside service) and commuters (walkers, jogger, cyclist, etc.).
