Qubo – COVID Guard Uses AI To Help Businesses Implement Safety Compliance Amid Coronavirus Lockdown
Hero Electronix, a Hero Group company, recently announced the launch of the Qubo COVID guard feature for its connected smart cameras. COVID Guard is an AI- based solution developed by the dedicated R&D team at Qubo. This technology will initially be available on Qubo’s secure camera platforms to detect and alert non-compliance.
For the enterprise market, Qubo has plans to work with Zenatix, a leading enterprise IoT solutions company and a part of Hero Electronix, as its go to market partner. Qubo’s Q-eye AI platform can accurately identify and detect if an employee is wearing a mask or not or practising social distancing. On detecting the absence of a mask or social distancing, the camera can inform the manager via the companion app along with the video/image of the incident. The in-built speakers will also sound off a warning message to the employee asking him/her to wear a mask.
For smaller retailers or Kirana stores who are currently supplying essentials to neighbourhoods, this feature enables the store owners to measure the level of health and safety compliance at their respective stores without the hassle of having to do so in- person. For households, the Qubo COVID guard can alert members of the household if a visitor such as delivery boys, essential service personnel etc are complying with health protocols. This precautionary measure can reduce the risk of exposure and safeguard the health of the family members.
Using the two-way talk function on the Qubo cameras, individuals can also interact with visitors in a contactless manner. The Qubo Smart Indoor Camera is the most secure device in the category and both of the new features will work in tandem while ensuring security and data privacy in the mind of the users.
The camera is secured using the QCrypto framework. All-access to the device is only from authenticated and authorized users hence images/videos can only be accessed by the managers with the companion app and no other individuals. The data including video, audio and images are protected by strong encryption methodologies, and transported over TLS secured channels to the cloud and user for consumption.
“Despite the challenges due to lockdown, COVID Guard features were developed in house by the team working remotely to help businesses to gradually head back to normalcy. Social distancing and wearing masks is the new normal, with COVID-Guard we are leveraging our expertise in developing AI-based solutions to solve a major real-world problem which hasbecome a public health crisis,” mentioned Nikhil Rajpal, CEO, Hero Electronix.
“We believe that with this feature, employers can remain at ease and focus on their businesses while Qubo cameras work round the clock to ensure safety across the work premises”.
Qubo COVID guard will be available in a range of Qubo Smart cameras at an affordable price of Rs 4,000 over the next 45 days.
