Computer vision brings the best in the densely populated countries in the world of Covid-19: Witnessing some of the impacts that CV Algorithms can bring in fighting this pandemic
Countries around the world are working to fight the virus and mitigate the risk. Businesses are finding technology solutions to maintain the business continuity and digitally transform organizations to be prepared for the new normal. At present, AI and associated technologies are not fully developed technologies. AI is actually much far away from imitating human intelligence. However, still, these technologies at the present level of their development cycle are found proving useful. These AI-based platforms are doing a significant amount of data crunching of the entire health, food, poultry, fisheries and tourism sectors. Subsequently, based on custom-made algorithms they are drawing inferences. Today, data science and machine learning are two important tools which are known to help the fight against Covid-19.
Monitoring disinfection of common public places including offices & Residential areas.
Surveillancing the every portion of the Covid-19 Sensitive Hotspots marked by the Prevention team & where more than five cases are noted than that area or place need to be disinfected and should be hygienic as per the guidelines issued by WHO because Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID -19) is an acute respiratory disease caused by a novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), transmitted in most instances through respiratory droplets, direct contact with cases and also through contaminated surfaces/objects. Though the virus survives on environmental surfaces for a varied period of time, it gets easily inactivated by chemical disinfectants.

- Indoor areas.
- Outdoor areas
Indoor areas including office spaces:
Sanitizing Activity monitoring,
Staff attire monitoring
Premise Cleanness monitoring
Work Space distancing
Local transmission vehicle sanitizing
Public and Religious Spot monitoring
Time and Density base access
Traffic Density monitoring
Ensuring the hygiene of Food & Retail Grocery Stores that functioning in Isolation
The food and grocery retail market bring in the highest amount of threat because it is consumed by directly and has been imported or exported from a long journey that’s why it needs to be tracked and compliances should be followed strictly . The market is the 6th largest in the world. While external monitoring of any food retail store in this pandemic is important, it is equally vital for the store to be monitored internally and how they are operated.
An FSSAI inspector might not be at hand to observe that every employee washes his or her hand before handling any food or delivering in this pandemic. However, technology can certainly lend a helping hand, or in this case, a helpful eye to ensure and improve hygiene compliance and to monitor that Covid-19 guidelines are followed . CCTV cameras along with Computer Vision technology use video analytics to observe, analyze, and report the miss happenings. For instance, the programmed software can detect whether the responsible person for the job has washed their hands as required or whether they have donned gloves, face masks, hair nets, etc., to ensure total compliance of food safety standards & covid-19 guidelines.
SoftVan recently shake hand with one of the Mexican fast serve chain in the western part of INDIA to ensure the food hygiene and end user health in this situation.
Drones can help to monitor suspect or quarantine citizen activity & in maintaining Social Distancing
Despite public health officials recommending social distancing policies and governments outright banning large events and shuttering businesses to stop the spread of COVID-19, some people still aren’t listening. To keep people indoors, Responsible Authorities are using drones, mounted with microphones, to scold people who aren’t self-quarantining. There’s a new brand of finger-wagging all over social media in light of the devastating COVID-19 pandemic: public shaming for being in public spaces. To the ire of global citizens following public health officials’ advice to stay inside, some people are still going about their normal lives as if thousands of people haven’t already died. In a bid to keep these people inside, and to prevent exponential spreading of the virus, Authorities are using speaker-mounted drones to find and promptly yell at people still congregating in the streets.
According to reporting by GPS World, using drones speeds up transport by 50% compared to road transportation. In addition to speed, it doesn’t expose human delivery drivers to any risks.
The world is implementing or is going to implement the Computer Vision which turns out to be an automatic, low-cost, non-intrusive system for video based medical diagnosis and monitoring of patients. Softvan will be glad to share his expertise and experience with Startups, NGO, NPO and Innovators.
