IntelliVision Technologies Corp., a subsidiary of Nortek Security & Control LLC (NSC) has added face mask detection to its range of real-time video analytics. The technology was developed using a deep-learning neural network and trained on many thousands of images of people wearing many different designs of face mask.
In addition to face mask detection, IntelliVision has been providing advanced face recognition analytics for over 10 years.
“Face mask detection is the first and most important line of defense in any back-to-work or public access COVID-19 protection strategy,” said Vaidhi Nathan, SVP cameras and analytics at NSC. “The IntelliVision face mask detection analytic ensures that employees, shoppers and customers are complying with safety guidelines, and is designed to send an alert if a mask is not detected. IntelliVision is committed to helping its customers and the market get back to work safely.”
Face mask detection is the first of a number of products to be released by IntelliVision as part of a broader COVID-19 back-to-work solution.
The IntelliVision family of AI video and audio analytics solutions includes face recognition, object classification (humans, vehicles, pets, airplanes), intelligent object detection, intrusion/perimeter watch, object left/removed, and license plate recognition (LPR/ANPR).
