How do we stop a global pandemic which has infected over 3.6 million and claimed more than 250000 lives? 

As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise, wearing masks and gloves, frequent hand sanitization, social distancing, and early identification of infected people are crucial in curbing further spread of COVID-19.

However, the biggest challenge that is faced by organizations is to enforce and ensure strict compliance with these measures. Especially at a time when the number of cases is on a surge each day, non-compliance due to human negligence and fatigue can cost us greatly.

To put it in words, “we are our worst enemies” during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is where technology such as computer vision can be highly impactful. IRIS AI, a flagship product by Integration Wizards Solutions can transform your passive CCTV cameras into active analytical tools.

The computer vision technology can keep your employees and premises safe by ensuring the use of masks and gloves by people, social distancing compliance, and early sensing of fever using thermal cameras.

With the majority of countries in a lockdown, business continuity is another key challenge being faced by companies across the globe. However, it is also critical to get the operations re-started to get the economy back up.

So, for those looking for an effective mechanism of ensuring more than 99% compliance without any infrastructure overhaul, implementing IRIS computer vision can help.

IRIS AI uses the feed from existing CCTV to detect non-compliance and raises real-time alerts as SMS, WhatsApp messages, email, etc. The alarm is configured to be sent to the right authority who can then take the necessary steps like personally contacting the non-compliant employee. Moreover, it gives insights on a dashboard for the organisation to understand the analytics during a given time period.

In these challenging times for communities across the globe, technology and innovation could be the key in this fight against COVID-19.
