Eswatini First to Launch Aura Safe Social Distancing Device in Africa


Eswatini has set a trend that will revolutionise how African tourism establishments do business in the new normal through the launch of the Aura Aware social distancing device.

Following on from being the first full country in southern Africa to receive the WTTC Safe Travels Stamp, this is another example of Eswatini leading the way in the continent’s recovery from the Coronavirus pandemic.

Aura Aware is a social distance sensor that warns if customers do not maintain social distancing of at least two metres.

The smart device is an LED panel that has a laser depth sensor at its base. It is capable of alerting people via audio-visual cues when they break the social distancing norm. It changes from green to red, to warn a person that they are too close. 

It can be synched via an app that enables the user to adjust the distance and turn on the beeping notification. It is also a plug-in device, which means you can either plug it into a standard power charger, or a power bank.

The aesthetic device comes with a free app to adjust preferred distance and sound settings. It has a wood finished baseplate that enables it to blend in perfectly with many interior designs.

This is a proudly Swazi initiative brought by NG Corp in association with Hilton Garden Inn, the first establishment to adapt this technology in Eswatini.  The device is used by thousands of businesses around the world, including IKEA, Hertz and Vodafone.
