Current methods of monitoring construction safety and productivity are tedious, costly and prone to human errors. Resulting in operations being non-compliance, dangerous and inefficient that leads to project delays, cost overruns and even reputational damage.
This technology enhances operational safety and productivity for construction sites by leveraging on the video feed of existing CCTV on-site. It is able to conduct video analytics on the CCTV feeds in real-time and provides immediate actionable insights such as alerts, trends and reports. Site personnel and managers leverage this technology to evaluate sub-contractor performance, monitor vehicle movement within and around site, track construction progress, educate workers on unsafe practices and strengthen their safety policies.
This technology is compatible with any IP camera or network video recorder. It retrieves and analyze the video feed in real time and provide alerts which can be sent to a selected messaging platform (i.e., Telegram, WhatsApp, etc.).
After the video feed is fed to either a cloud server or an on-premise server, it would provide the full spectrum of services such as running the software, allowing it to automatically conduct the video analytics and display the output required (i.e. alerts, vehicle plates, etc.). The technology is enabled by large construction datasets which are critical for any artificial intelligence’s accuracy. The current range of detection includes open edge detection, danger under lifted loads, vehicle productivity, personal protective equipment (PPE) detection, vehicle ingress/egress, illegal parking, traffic jam, vehicle idle time among others.
This technology has viable use-cases in providing automated safety monitoring, quality assurance, site security and productivity tracking to other industries such as manufacturing, maritime and oil and gas. The current set of use cases are also non-exhaustive with new use-cases being tested out every day for the construction industry.
The global market size for construction safety and productivity solutions in 2021 is USD 41.8 Billion.
