FogHorn, a developer of edge AI software for industrial and commercial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, has launched a new product line to improve the safety of workplaces and help mitigate the spread of contagious illnesses.

 

Lightning health and safety solutions are out-of-the-box packages of its Lightning Edge AI platform preconfigured with use-case specific machine learning models and visualisation dashboards.

Out-of-the-box solutions allow organisations to rapidly deploy edge intelligence and AI and immediately derive insights to common problems, FogHorn reports.

 

“The Covid-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the way organisations view health and safety,” said David King, CEO, FogHorn. “By proactively monitoring worker temperatures, coughs and social distancing, organisations can mitigate the impact of future outbreaks of any sickness in the workplace.”

 

He continued: “As well, organisations can protect the monitored employee data with FogHorn’s streaming analytics at the edge, as all images, videos and other data are processed in real-time, by not transmitting the data off-site or to the cloud.”

 

According to FogHorn, health and safety monitoring has been a largely manual task and technology solutions address only specific use cases, such as temperature monitoring. But the challenge for organisations to ensure workplace safety and reduce health risks requires an enterprise-wide solution that automates monitoring through video and other sensors and spans multiple use cases.

The Lightning Health & Safety Solution suite includes a range of out-of-the-box solutions that can be used individually or together to create a comprehensive system. An enterprise edition of the solutions is also available that can include further customizations, data science and integrations with customer’s existing IT systems, video management software, and access control systems.

Solutions include:

  • health monitoring: elevated temperature detection, cough detection, hand washing monitoring, social distancing monitoring, and mask / facial covering detection
  • safety monitoring: personal protective equipment, including hard hats, footwear, eyewear, vests, and boots
  • hazard detection: custom solution engagements are also available including crane and falling debris warnings, leak detection and spill hazards.

Leveraging streaming video analytics and sensor fusion, Lightning health and safety solutions automates monitoring, derives real-time insights and generates alerts when policy violations occur, or unsafe health conditions are detected.

 

Audio streams and video and thermal cameras collect information and send data to the Lightning solutions. Lightning publishes real-time SMS or email alerts of any compliance violations and those insights are also shown on a dashboard that can be deployed at building entry points, employee break rooms, near production lines and in management consoles that safety and compliance staff can access using any web browser.
