Safe social distance monitoring with Computer Vision
A vision-based solution helps to monitor the recommended social distance in pandemic times
Since the beginning of the world pandemic of Covid-19, we have followed several Artificial Intelligence initiatives that help in the control, combat, monitoring and search for solutions for new drugs.
You can follow, on our Intelligent Connections channel on Youtube, the live "Intelligence is the best weapon in the war against COVID-19", which presents several artificial intelligence initiatives that are being used around the world: https: // youtu.be/cEV1Jn5gGSw
In this post, I would like to disclose a personal initiative, by our notable Artificial Intelligence associate, Alessandro Faria (https://www.linkedin.com/in/alessandro-de-oliveira-faria-97195835/), which he developed with Vision Computational (Artificial Intelligence algorithms that act in the capture, classification and understanding of images of different natures), a safe social distance monitoring, suggested by the WHO.
In his project, he used images from public cameras on Avenida Paulista, in the city of São Paulo, to identify people, with convolutional neural networks, and calculate the distance between pedestrians, with an estimated calculation based on the relative transformation of the coordinates used in augmented reality. When the distance is less than the predefined, the algorithm generates an alert.
