The Challenge

The American Association for the Advancement of Science published a recent study which concluded that “intermittent distancing may be required into 2022 unless critical care capacity is increased substantially or a treatment or vaccine becomes available”. Since the availability of a solution will still take some time, it is of the utmost importance to adopt a series of protection measures and safety protocols that prevent post-pandemic outbreaks from happening, so that the economic, social and educational activities can resume as soon as possible.

Sigma’s COVID solutions can monitor and measure the compliance with the safety measures and protocols.

The Solution

Monitoring compliance with the safety measures and protocols helps to assess their effectiveness, to stop the spread of COVID-19 and make better and faster decisions.
Sigma’s COVID solutions have been used to count people to control occupancy requirements, check compliance with social distancing, and detect the use of personal protection equipment in real time with existing cameras or with new cameras. Each indoor camera can cover a surface of 1,000 sqf.

The Outcome

The real time analysis allows company to take the appropriate actions at the right time and to perform risk analysis, estimate trends, create and validate predictive models, etc.
