Wobot Intelligence, an AI-driven computer vision SaaS venture recently announced plugNplay, a hygiene tracking tool that can be plugged into existing cameras. When connected to an existing CCTV or camera, the solution can effectively monitor 20 second-hand wash, social distancing compliance, and premise cleaning/sanitation activities.

PlugNplay amalgamates facial, activity, gesture, and object recognition. Analyzed visual data is delivered in real-time as notifications on Wobot app, WhatsApp, or e-mail to specified stakeholders. A web-based central dashboard also keeps track of all organizational data on hygiene compliance in one place. This hygiene and safety monitoring tool has been implemented across India, Middle East at Kitopi, IRCTC, and Rebel Foods, Curefit among others.

At IRCTC, where Wobot’s tool has been in operation for a year, there is a noticeable improvement in their hygiene level which has led to a 50% increase in positive sentiment on Twitter.“The COVID-19 driven hygiene guidelines are here to stay even after post lock-down is lifted. It’s the new normal for businesses and organizations across India/worldwide. And physical monitoring beyond a point is not effective or scaleable or prohibitively expensive,” mentioned Adit Chhabra, CEO, Wobot Intelligence.

“By ensuring 24×7 monitoring and real-time feed on compliance we are taking the load off business owners and heads of locations or teams in ensuring compliance and improving sanitisation in their premises”.
