Sensors and devices based on the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence, and other cutting-edge techniques and technologies will be deployed in hospitality establishments in the Region to extract information on social distance indoors, the degree of occupancy, the detection of coronavirus in wastewater, autonomously taking clients’ body temperatures or detecting the number of particles in the air (related to the presence of viruses). In addition, the automatic activation of different disinfection devices and/or warnings will be included in order to improve safety and prevention conditions in indoor spaces.
These are some of the actions aimed at the early detection of the coronavirus that will be carried out to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in these establishments. In this way, the Administration and citizens will be able to regain trust in hotels, restaurants and cafes.
