Google develops social distance AR tool

Google has developed its ‘Sodar’ augmented reality (AR) tool to help visualise social distancing restrictions using Android phones as the world begins to adjust to a ‘new normal’ with Covid-19.

By using the camera on Androids, the Sodar tool visualises a two metre radius ring around the user, allowing Android users to adjust to a new normal and safely visualise a distance from other people. 

The Sodar tool is available through the Google Sodar website and only works via Chrome on Android devices.
