In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many grocery stores and other public places have tried to help customers maintain social distancing through markers and other signage.
However, these sometimes can get worn away or removed due to people walking over them or simply blowing over. In other cases, signage might not be available at all.
With all of that in mind, Google has released a toll called ‘Sodar,’ which uses augmented reality to mark two metres away from you — the recommended minimum for social distancing.
While the tool is only available on Android devices running Google Chrome, it doesn’t require an app to be used. See Sodar in action below:
Sodar – use WebXR to help visualise social distancing guidelines in your environment. Using Sodar on supported mobile devices, create an augmented reality two meter radius ring around you. #hacktohelp https://t.co/Bu78QrEN9f pic.twitter.com/kufatNFDQk
