Kinexon develops IoT and wearable offerings that can be used for everything from social-distancing enforcement and contact tracing to data collection and analysis of athletes on the field.
The Munich, Germany-based company announced in November that it received a venture debt loan worth 15 million euros from the European Investment Bank to expand its go-to-market in Europe, the U.S. and Asia in addition to supporting new development of data analytics and AI products.
This year, the company introduced an offering called SafeZone that uses a fleet of wristbands worn by employees that alerts them when they are too close to another co-worker. Beyond use cases for traditional workforces, the offering has also been chosen by the Southeastern Conference for enhanced COVID-19 contact tracing during the 2020 football season.
