Irish Tech Company Offers New Platform to Monitor Social Distancing

In response to the coronavirus pandemic Irish-based technology company Taoglas – co-founded by UCD alumni Dermot O’Shea and Ronan Quinlan – is launching the Crowd Insights platform to help manage crowd sizes and ensure social distancing. The platform works with existing Wi-Fi infrastructure to monitor numbers and flows of people in public areas, and triggers an alarm if intervention is required.

Taoglas is already providing the platform free of charge to one Irish hospital.

“We believe this will be vital in the days and months to come to allow people to move around safely without fear and to get the economy moving again.” Ronan Quinlan, co-founder and co-CEO of Taoglas
