Improving Construction Safety with Intel
"Intel and ecosystem partners LivNSense, Velociti, and Austin Bridge & Road are jointly developing a Vision-Based Intelligent Collision Avoidance System (ViCAS). ViCAS is an external monitoring solution that helps enable commercial and industrial construction firms to reduce workplace accidents. ViCAS leverages the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit and Intel® Movidius™ Vision Processing Units (VPUs) to power deep learning inferencing models that can alert workers in near-real time about their surroundings, reducing workplace incidences and work stoppages. This solution provides an analytics dashboard visualization that includes a fully detailed report of all key metrics, as well as any non-safety compliance events that happen in the workplace."
