“COVID-19 Safe Distancing Measures in Public Spaces with Edge AI,” a Presentation from the Government Technology Agency of Singapore

Ebi Jose, Senior Systems Engineer at GovTech, the Government Technology Agency of Singapore, presents the “COVID-19 Safe Distancing Measures in Public Spaces with Edge AI” tutorial at the May 2022 Embedded Vision Summit.

Whether in indoor environments, such as supermarkets, museums and offices, or outdoor environments, such as parks, maintaining safe social distancing has been a priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this talk, Jose presents GovTech’s work developing cloud-connected edge AI solutions that count the number of people present in outdoor and indoor spaces, providing facility operators with real-time information that allows them to manage spaces to enable social distancing.

Jose provides an overview of the system architecture, hardware, algorithms, software and backend monitoring elements of GovTech’s solution, highlighting differences in how it addresses indoor vs. outdoor spaces. He also presents results from deployments of GovTech’s solution.
