The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the transportation sector dramatically, And with a new reality, comes a new challenge in services to move people or goods, as well, People have become uncertain about their safety in larger crowds, have raised concerns and feel insecure about traveling during Covid-19, and its related lockdows around the world has led to a significant decrease in air freight and logistics, airlines, marine, road and rail, and use of transportation infrastructure.
However, transportation is crucial in making our world function. So, how can we regain the trust and reassure everyone in the face of the Covid-19 and beyond? We need long-term solutions to solve the immediate issues as well as ensure healthy environments.
Analytics of video feeds and sensors can provide an almost infinite array of opportunities, from enhancing situational awareness and help turn data into insights to reduce costs. It can be effectively applied to improve both security and safety efforts, which enables to react faster and make informed decisions and identify new opportunities.
Keeping transport and logistics running puts pressure on resources and introduces new challenges that must be solved, such as overcrowding and monitoring with people counting and safe distancing, Identify feverish passengers with elevated skin temperature detection
Monitor passengers wear face masks with mask detection, using analytics of video camera feeds for face mask detection is among the most efficient routes to take to ensure both safety and compliance. Avoid overcrowding in large areas with crowd counting solutions, it can help provide insights and inform authorities and operators to when large areas get too crowded. The real-time data will enable immediate action, as well as insights that can help optimise locations and enhance situational awareness.
Communicate clearly with digital signage, in order to comply with preventative measures, they need to understand how to do so, be it by knowing about available premises or the right way to move around.
Having analytics for insights provides the benefit of issuing visual messaging through digital signage systems. You can integrate all your data sources and use digital signage to inform in real-time and control what will be presented on displays. This means that you will be able to direct people to the correct areas for travel or give reminders of safety guidelines.
Optimize people flow with heat mapping, for people to uphold the rules of social distancing, they need for their environment to allow it. Here, authorities have a responsibility to ensure that enough free space. With the power of analytics, you can identify the areas that typically have the highest congregations. This can be done by creating heat maps or occupancy statistics based on the images the cameras have captured to provide this information historically or in real-time.
Measure distance between people and transport vehicle or equipment with LiDAR Sensor, it can accurately measure the location of and distance between them, as well as the number of people or transportation equipment in a given location. LiDAR sensors are an advanced 3D-sensing technology used to determine the movement, range and angle of moving objects via laser beams. The technology enables you to count people entering and exiting areas and provide an automatic notification.
