Social distance is a hot topic in current discussions. In areas where crowds are unavoidable, such as cash registers in the supermarket and the ticket kiosk at public transportation stations, how to measure social distancing compliance is critical. Authorities in various locations have established specific guidelines and legislation in this area, balancing needs and risks for citizens.
This solution uses people counting and 3D modeling technologies to measure the distance between people accurately. The distance measurement can be adjusted, according to scenario, or changing Government regulations, for example.
The output can be connected to various kinds of alarm, such as a siren or speaker, making it possible to tailor the message to the scenario. For example, an audio message saying “Please remember to keep more than 1.5m apart” could be used. Alternatively, in more extreme circumstances a siren could sound, alerting a security guard to intervene.
