Our solution is a computer-vision based solution for automated site condition and safety monitoring. This system can fuse with existing CCTV system on site so the cost can be minimized, and it can provide 3 major functionalities: 1) Automated site safety monitoring and analytic. 2) Integration with DWSS in safety report drafting. 3) Comprehensive site analysis with multi-cameras tracking.
