Ford Is Testing Social Distancing Wristbands

Ford is testing out wristbands that buzz if wearers come within six feet of each other.

A dozen workers at a factory in Plymouth, Michigan are trying out the devices to help them maintain distance guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic. It is one of several safety ideas the automaker is considering as it prepares to resume production next month.

The company is also looking at workers being thermal image scanned for fever as they enter the building.
