Smart Tourism Post-COVID

Increase tourist confidence and fight virus expansion with preventive technology while increasing business competitiveness

IoT technology helps to reopen tourism destinations and facilities while preventing and limiting the spread of the Coronavirus.

Smart Tourism: Adapt your business to new procedures according to post-Covid health and safety protocols.

  • No booking = no business. Give confidence to employees and tourists.
  • Invest in prevention measures to attract customers.
  • Reactivate your hotel and any other facility with IoT even improving competitiveness.

Discover how Digitalization and solutions based on the IoTcan be the basis for the reactivation of the productive activity without losing sight of competitiveness.

Innovation and technology have always been present in the hotel sector, but now more than ever their presence is indispensable.

  1 » Temperature control for fever screening

Measure the temperature of your customers before they enter your site.
  • The kit does not detect the coronavirus but prevents the indiscriminate entry of potentially infected people.
  • It's cheaper than thermographic cameras.
  • Connect the kit to your surveillance system and activate light or sound alerts.
  • The system performs the measurement autonomously without having to assign an employee exclusively to the entrance of the building.

  2 » Indoor occupancy control

Control the capacity of your establishment to ensure that it does not exceed the limits set.
  • Measure the entry and exit flow of clients as well as the total time they spend in each space: reception, dining room, meeting rooms, swimming pool area, gymnasium...
  • Prepare occupation reports, heat maps and forecast in which spaces you need more staff, establishing consumption patterns by days and hours.

  3 » Crowd and traffic tracking

Measure social distancing in open spaces.
  • Detect traffic of people and vehicles in the access to beaches and recreation areas.
  • Anticipate possible agglomerations and allocate surveillance teams right where they are needed.

  4 » Parking space detection

Make the most of available parking spaces in hotels, cities, beaches: indoor and outdoor
  • Control occupancy levels.
  • Establish alerts to prevent the misuse of available places.
  • Increase incomes from the use of the parking areas.
  • Improves the customer's user experience.

  5 » Air quality and pollution detection

Breathing in clean air environments minimizes the risk of respiratory disease.
  • Monitor the air quality at any space, either outdoor or indoor, and giv tourists the confidence that they will be breathing unpolluted air.
  • Measure different air quality parameters and set maximum levels to activate alerts.
  • Provide real-time open data to users.
Should privacy trump safety? We are moving into the next phase of our battle with coronavirus. Lockdown has brought us valuable time to develop our healthcare capacity, focus on the foundations of a vaccine and develop systems capable of protecting us from the virus outside our homes. Unfortunately, there will always be those who, in the name of privacy concerns, wish to limit the effectiveness of those systems. Of course, they have a right to believe that their privacy should trump our safety. However, they should not be allowed to block those of us who wish to utilise new technology and step out of lockdown into the new normal.

  6 » Fire prevention

Fires are particularly damaging to tourist destinations and their natural environment. The devastating effects of a fire take years to recover and affect both public and private spaces.
  • The measurement of a combination of environmental parameters can predict risks in order to prevent and fight them.
  • Informing the resident population and tourists of the risks of fire in the summer is the first measure of prevention. To do so effectively, data must be provided in open and real time to adapt tourist use of facilities in accordance with restrictions of the environmental conditions.
  • Recreational activities such as open-air barbecues, fireworks or pyrotechnic shows as well as the use of fuels in plant spaces must be restricted according to these fire risk alerts.

  7 » Weather conditions prediction and UV radiation measuring

Providing customers with real-time weather data and forecasts for the next few days improves the user experience for planning their outdoor activities.
  • Knowing parameters such as temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure are also useful for planning the watering of gardens in any facility.
  • Measuring wind direction and intensity from weather stations can predict changes in coastal and mountain resorts.
  • In summer, UV radiation rates are very harmful to the skin and tourists should protect themselves from the sun by knowing the data in real time.

Moving towards a new partial security

There are many debates arising around the safety versus privacy of the public with the application of technology in the prevention of coronavirus. When half the world was locked down or dying in hospitals, fear tipped the balance in favour of security advocates unconcerned with the loss of privacy. Any measure was good, as long as everyone was protected.

  8 » Water quality monitoring (pools and spas)

The swimming pools and spas are the most popular areas during the summer holidays. Measuring the quality of the water is not only a sanitary requirement, it also offers guarantees to the users.
  • The temperature and relative humidity of the environment must also be measured in indoor swimming pools.
  • Measuring values such as pH, temperature, turbidity, chlorine, bromine... is the key to keeping the water in optimum conditions for use.
  • The installation of 24-hour real time water measurement devices means a cost saving compared to the manual collection and analysis of daily samples.

  9 » Sea water quality control (beaches and off-shore)

Tourists are looking for certified quality beaches that include sanitary services: showers, toilets, garbage containers... The environmental impact of tourism on beaches, lakes and bathing areas is extremely high
  • Measuring the healthiness of seawater at the edge of the beach is one of the requirements to be carried out by the municipalities of coastal towns.
  • At medium and high depths there is also a risk of water pollution from ship spills and sewage pipes from coastal towns to the sea.

  10 » Water level measuring (streams and rivers)

The overflows of rivers and streams cause very serious material damage to the populations of the valleys and maritime coasts.
  • The measurement of water levels in riverbeds can alert to extreme variations and alert the population to implement control actions.
  • Climate change, spring meltdown and summer storms and other seasonal variations often produce these floods.
  • Combining weather monitoring with river and stream channel surveillance allows for disaster prevention.
