LiveReach Media Introduces Social Distancing Technology for Small Businesses, Retailers, Transportation Hubs, and Venues

SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LiveReach Media (LRM) has released new updates to its motion analytics platform and digital signage software. Using easy-to-deploy sensors and sophisticated artificial intelligence, the LRM solution measures distances between humans in real-time and discerns customer demographic information. LRM’s digital signage software now comes pre-loaded with COVID-19 content and creatives so that venues can use their new or existing digital screens to communicate public health and safety reminders.

Pairing both technologies, LRM triggers content and creatives based on real-time data. For example, if customers are in overly close proximity to each other, digital signs can remind them to keep a safe distance. In addition, venue operators can receive customized text or email-based alerts to help monitor social distancing.

Grocery stores worldwide have begun piloting LRM’s technology to automate decision-making, including restricting customer entry based on in-store density. The LRM solution reduces expense and increases employee safety.
