COVID-19 has changed the world as we know it permanently. The world will be different and it will stay this way until a vaccination is found. As we prepare ourselves for the post-covid world, we should fight hard and fight smart - with the use of smart technologies and enhanced surveillance. Canon is determined to join this long battle against the pandemic, in line with government efforts and new safety measures that are put in place as Singapore slowly ends the Circuit Breaker and embark on a three-phased approach to resume activities safely. Here are some solutions to simplify your business challenges unique to this pandemic.
Temperature screening has been an effective tool in the fight against the COVID-19. Reducing the need for manual temperature screening would significantly increase its effectiveness as the first line of defence. With the latest video analytics technology in Canon’s new Facial Access Control Temperature System, it ensures that your workplace remains safe with smoother operation, better tracking and monitoring. Our AI-powered temperature detection terminal allows contactless automated temperature measurement with target up to 2 metres, and is able to scan up to 100,000 faces at 0.2 seconds per person. Its bi-polar liveness camera can give instant alerts when elevated body temperatures are detected, while recording video at the same time. Enhanced with the Black Body technology, it has a high accuracy of ±0.3℃, which is 0.2℃ lower when compared to the other solutions available in the market.
As an integrated all-in-one solution, this wireless enabled device also acts as an easy and secured access control for all visitors. Once their temperatures have been scanned and recorded, they can then scan their IDs or company staff passes on the built-in NFC reader and the barcode scanning unit. This allows temperatures to be taken with identities scanned all on their own, in one single stop, with no separate scanners required. Additionally, this also allows for easier contact tracing to be conducted via time attendance, if required.
The Circuit Breaker might be coming to an end, but social distancing measures will stay around for some time to come, as part of the new guidelines for workplace safety. Such measures can be time consuming and difficult to implement manually.
Automate and safeguard your workplace with innoVi by Agent Vi, a cloud-based video analytics Software as a Service (SaaS). This feature rich solution is capable of real-time proximity identification and detection, and alerts administrators of social distancing noncompliance. Along with its video search function, it enables automatic retrieval and analysis of recorded footages for optimised speed in investigations when needed. Built with innoVi’s AI-driven algorithm, their breakthrough anomaly detection capability is further enhanced with machine learning ability to distinguish between objects and humans with high accuracy.
For workplaces with existing network surveillance, the integration of innoVi’s centrally managed platform is easy. It offers scalability on an unlimited number of cameras, transforming any ONVIF/RTSP fixed IP camera into an intelligent video device with simple installation, setup and maintenance.
As we slowly ease into the “new normal”, events will gradually resume. Crowd management then remains important as one of the key measures that will help to prevent potential community outbreaks, especially in large and public areas. Canon’s Video Content Analysis (VCA) solution, People Counter, regulates and enforces crowd limitations seamlessly. Capable of mid to large scale counting of up to 1,500 people for Full HD video and 7,000 people in a 4K still image, the AI-powered solution is able to automatically analyse and accurately count the number of people within a designated area in real-time, even in low light conditions.
While it operates as an independent people counting application, it can also be integrated with third party solutions for greater efficiency in crowd management at workplaces or public areas, catering to the unique needs of any businesses.
