AI-based Face Mask Detection for Public Health and Safety
The AI-based MaskCognizer, developed by Fraunhofer IDMT, is a technology that detects and verifies in real time whether people are wearing their face masks correctly. It provides immediate and appropriate feedback for the protection of the general public and enables easier compliance with public health and safety regulations.
Verification in Motion
Fraunhofer IDMT's robust video analysis technology, embedded in any MaskCognizer-enabled device, classifies up to ten faces simultaneously. It works even when people are in motion. It is not even necessary that a person is positioned in front of the device. Verification with corresponding feedback takes place as the person passes by.
Public Health Safeguards and Cost Savings
With MaskCognizer-enabled solutions, mask wearing compliance can be checked automatically. This reduces the risk of infection for employees and reduces the security personnel costs associated with monitoring face mask obligations.
Solutions based on the MaskCognizer technology can be deployed wherever mask wearing compliance must be monitored, e.g. in retail, public transport, hospitals, doctors' surgeries, in public administration or in the catering industry, and these are just some of the use cases.
