The solution sees sensors installed through IP camera feeds that monitor workspaces through sensing algorithms. This is said to ensure that rooms are not over occupied, see whether people are working too closely together, and link to warning lights or announcements to help people stay safe.
According to Sypro, the system can recognise body shapes but not individuals, so staff privacy can be maintained.
Jonathan Harlock, MD of Sypro Ltd., explains: “Companies across the UK are keen to get back to work and get staff back into the workplace but it’s imperative that we ensure staff safety even when lockdown is lifted.
“While it can be difficult to maintain social distancing policies in the workplace, this technology will be a valuable tool which will help managers to keep their staff safe and business running smoothly.”
