Hyderabad: Maven Labs, a startup based at the Technology Business Incubator (TBI), University of Hyderabad (UoH), has come up with a tool that can monitor physical distancing by detecting whether the distance among people is at least six feet.

The tool, SudRz, analyses real-time video streaming from cameras like CCTVs and identifies physical distancing violations using artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm between all pairs of individuals, the UoH said on Friday.

It also gives alarm with individuals framed in a box on the screen. Cameras with IP enabled are sufficient to implement the system. The tool has an added built-in feature for facial recognition using AI.

“Once the identification of a face is made with other identifying data such as passport number or employee number, contactless processing by remote facial recognition can be used for functions such as selective entry into restricted areas and attendance monitoring etc. This helps to ensure employee and public safety,” it added.
