Sentri360 utilizes artificial intelligence for Human Activity Recognition through face mask detection, thermal imagery-powered skin temperature checks, enforcement of social distancing
Everguard, a developer of AI-based worker safety solutions, launched new applications to help industries reopen safely as the first COVID-19 lockdown loosens. Their flagship platform, Sentri360 is an end-to-end safety solution that alerts management and workers in real time to potential safety hazards. The application can ensure employees are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), adhering to social distancing guidelines, and can perform person-by-person skin temperature checks through advanced thermal imagery capabilities.
“With various industries priming to reopen after government-mandated shutdowns, many factories and warehouses are looking for ways to ensure not only the health and safety of their employees, but also that future operations aren’t disrupted due to cluster outbreaks of COVID-19 infection,” said Sandeep Pandya, CEO of Everguard. “Sentri360 is a useful aid in this process by utilizing artificial intelligence to continuously monitor worker behavior while generating an ever-increasing situational understanding of the worker’s environment. This full understanding allows the system to intervene intelligently, ensuring workers adhere to new guidelines while also preventing industrial accidents in real time.”
With a feature suite including PPE detection, safety zone compliance and temperature checking capabilities, among others, Sentri360 works by scanning through multi-sensor inputs to alert workers through a wearable personal alert device. This means that in the event an employee removes their mask for an extended period of time, or gets closer than six feet to other workers, they will receive an alert reminding them of protocols. Managers are also alerted to enable post-event analysis and provide further health and safety coaching to employees.
Everguard emerged from BCG Digital Ventures, a global corporate investment and incubation firm. The company is currently developing tailored safety solutions for steel, construction, oil and gas, and a host of other industries.
