Specifically, its operation is based on a geolocation device the size of a coin, which is placed on the swimmer's cap or goggles.In this way, with a single 'click', the user will be located in the installation, both inside and outside the water, thanks to the 'tracking' technology (digital monitoring) of the Spanish company Nothingbutnet, of which Nagi is part Smartpool.For their part, lifeguards will have smart watches and tablets.
The digital system will allow them to track the location of the swimmers and also detect the time that each user is submerged in the water.
In case of being submerged for longer than the established time, the device will emit a signal to the lifeguard so that he can act immediately, avoiding drowning.During the event, held at the Mar Menor pool, Javier Bosch, CEO of Nagi Smartpool, declared that “in this time that we have had to live, safety has become one of the key words, and with the arrival of the pool intelligent to Murcia, its City Council has become a pioneer and will ensure that swimmers can carry out their daily exercise safely and without any type of concern ".Real-time control of capacity and safety distanceThe system allows real-time control of the capacity and the safety distance, so that, in case of breaking the distance with other swimmers, the device will emit an alert that will warn the swimmer that he is not complying with it, which will not stop until is correct again.Average speed, number of lengths and total distanceAt the end of each session, the users of the swimming pools will be able to know all the data of their exercise, which will be available immediately: the number of lengths performed, the distance swam in meters, the average speed swam and the time in the pool, as well as keeping a record of the people they have come across during training.More than 3,300 usersSpecifically, the offer of places in the Infante Pool is 779 people; the Mar Menor pool, of 1,704; and that of Puente Tocinos, of 889, which means that a total of 3,377 users will be able to use this technology.
