In order to prevent the spread of the new Coronavirus, the government recommend social distancing between people. In some places, it is very complicated to respect this basic rule. In the shops, on the streets, in public places, there are a lot of people and they are very close to each other.
At ACIC, our engineering teams have developed software solution to calculate the distance between people. By calibrating the camera image, we are able to calculate the distance between people.
This distance is customizable, it is actually possible to raise alarms in a VMS if people are less than 1.5m or less than 2m to each other for example. In addition, it is possible to collect statistics and datas on the average distance between people.
This solution can be used in other contexts than that of the Coronavirus crisis. It is for example possible to calculate the distance between vehicles or any kind of objects.
