David Greschler, CEO and co-founder of Nomad Go, presents the “Computer Vision for the Built Environment” tutorial at the May 2021 Embedded Vision Summit.
Facilities and operations managers of buildings, college campuses, retail and foodservice establishments all struggle to answer one fundamental question: “What are people doing in our spaces?” Computer vision – specifically edge computer vision – provides the ability to not only capture what is happening in a physical space but also unlocks actionable data about physical spaces that allows building managers and owners to greatly improve energy efficiency, sustainability and overall operations.
In this presentation, you’ll learn about challenges in understanding the built environment, the methods currently being used to address them, and how edge computer vision is being applied to solve these challenges by providing real-time, actionable data at scale. Greschler presents real-world case studies of deployed edge computer vision solutions, showing how they are helping save energy costs, reduce greenhouse gases and improve operations such as cleaning and space planning.
