OxBlue.com, an Atlanta-based technology company and the leader in professional construction camera services, has announced the development of artificial intelligence (AI)-based technology for detecting social distancing on construction sites.
ATLANTA, April 17, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- OxBlue, an Atlanta-based technology company and the leader in professional construction camera services, has announced the development of artificial intelligence (AI)-based technology for detecting social distancing on construction sites.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) advises that the best way to prevent illness and prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to avoid being exposed to the virus. The new technology uses artificial intelligence (AI) to detect when two or more people are in close proximity to each other. By detecting when workers are not practicing social distancing, OxBlue's proprietary AI technology has the potential to increase awareness and improve safety.
"With a global pandemic, harnessing the power of technology to solve the construction industry's immediate challenges is our top priority at the moment," said Chandler McCormack, CEO of OxBlue. "We want to provide solutions offering actionable insights and the peace of mind knowing that everything is being done to keep workers safe and healthy."
Though previously unannounced, OxBlue's AI capabilities for measuring construction activity levels had already been validated based on field trials. The tool was originally developed to assist OxBlue clients in understanding construction activity on their projects. As the crisis began to worsen, OxBlue began to analyze data at a national level in order to measure the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on construction activity levels across the United States. Developing the capability to detect social distancing on construction sites is the latest in a series of developments announced by OxBlue.
