RAD Develops AI Mask-Detection Tech
Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD) has enhanced its autonomous security and property management devices with an advanced mask-detection feature.
This feature provides an autonomous tool to identify face mask usage, create automatic alerts, and generate ongoing face compliance scores. It’s being integrated into RAD’s Health Screening system and can be used to automatically prevent people who are not wearing masks from entering buildings, intended to reduces the risk of confrontation and escalation.
Analytic features, meanwhile, enable companies to monitor mask compliance, and compare these rates across multiple sites so teams can address sites with low compliance.
Systems can also be integrated into access control systems, denying entry to people who fail screenings even if they have a building pass. When a person without a mask is detected, the system can generate audible and visible alerts. It also feeds alerts and a cloud-based data storage system so that security executives can analyze data for trends or quickly locate video of important incidents.
“Research shows that wearing masks is extremely important in slowing the transmission of communicable diseases such as Covid-19,” said Steve Reinharz, founder and CEO of RAD, in a statement. “We also know that other screening methods, such as temperature checks, can be fooled if an individual takes fever-reducing medication. You can’t fool the camera and you can’t argue with it. Autonomous systems enforce mask policies consistently, drive accountability, and are a vital part of RAD’s complete health screening solution.”
RAD is a wholly owned subsidiary of Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions.
