The COVID-19 pandemic isn't over until it's over globally. The recovery timeline is going to be long and bumpy. Meantime we will be living in the new reality, with strong prevention measures in place, such as reduced capacity for venues and events, social distancing, foot traffic rules and others.
Fifth Ocean team has expertise and technologies to build solutions that will help the move to COVID normal. Our suite of frameworks and services, that allows us to deliver high impact tailored solutions quickly and efficiently and in the most cost-effective way, now includes Visual Intelligence Platform (FO VIP).
The FO VIP is a framework of AI deep learning models and object tracking and decision-making algorithms developed by Fifth Ocean. It takes a variety of sources of real-time visual information (e.g. CCTV cameras) as feeds and translates them into actionable events, while collecting data for producing real-time dashboards and historical reporting. The platform has administration interface for system configuration and dashboard assembly. Its architecture is modular and allows easy incorporation of new requirements.
Using FO VIP we develop custom real-time solutions for video analytics and crowd management. The final solution is offered as SAAS (Software as a Service). Depending on your organization needs the customization might be minimal and what will be left to do is setting up, configuring and calibrating.
With the FO VIP service there is no video recording or personalisation, analytical data is extracted from CCTV camera video frames and processed automatically and anonymously. So there is no extra level of concern about privacy-related restrictions.
When actions need to be taken or notifications to be sent based on actual real-time developments
The occupancy of any location where people gather, be it an event, visitor location, supermarket or office space, is a key piece of information needed to assure compliance with health and safety guidelines. It becomes even more important factor in the time when precautions need to be taken to limit the spread of infection.
By covering multiple entries/exits or watching a specific area the service will estimate how many people are already in the area and generate warning for starting up processes to slow down the incoming crowd when the maximum venue capacity is about to be reached.
One of the measures to minimise COVID-19 exposure is to regulate foot traffic in interior spaces. Designating specific doorways as entry-only and exit-only, one-way passages, arrowed floor markings and signage to encourage people walk in the same direction are some of the rules that were introduced in public areas and workplaces.
Crowd flow directions can be detected and re-enforced. For example, when a person does not follow the signs the system will send an event that can action a response such as "Wrong way, please use another door" flashing on a monitor or locking a gate.
Timely metrics to keep your finger on the pulse or monitor how they evolved over periods of time
A lot of analytical data is created over time while the FO VIP service detects and tracks people in video streams in real time and maps their location to floorplans. This data can be used to help with management decisions, collecting insights and making conclusions.
In the context of protection against COVID-19 it could help answer questions such as - what are potential hotspots where too many people are crowding and coming together, how to better manage staff on the ground reducing their exposure, where to put sanitising stations, how to better organise the cleaning, etc.
Dynamically presenting raw data, reporting can transform the data into meaningful and useful information.
Dashboards provide a comprehensive, high-level view of key metrics. Data is visualised on a dashboard as charts, gauges, traffic and heat maps.
Dashboards are assembled from pre-defined configurable widgets.
Out-of-the-box and custom reports are automatically compiled and sent on a recurring basis to a group of end users.
There is also an option for ad-hoc, interactive extraction of pre-defined datasets into CSV/XML files.
These actions are triggered when selected metric falls outside of expected ranges or some other pre-defined criteria is met. Once people are notified of what happened, they can take appropriate action as necessary.
The notifications can be sent via email or SMS.
Raw data has several uses, including an analysis of user behavior or to enrich other data sources like BI systems. If you want to use the data in analytics tools of your choice you have an option to export raw data via API (application programming interface).
