Sensing Technology with LiDAR to Support Post-pandemic Manufacture and Business Operation

As many countries and cities are lifting the COVID-19 restrictions and reopening business, how to continuously prevent the spread of the virus is a critical challenge for all. LEDinside noticed that many sensor technology developers have created solutions to anonymously monitoring people’s activities in public for controlling social distance and checking health status. LiDAR technology, for example, is now used to support people flow management.

Hitachi Vantara, the digital infrastructure and solutions subsidiary of Hitachi, is leveraging its technology to deliver a variety of solutions for reducing the risk of infection.

The company combined 3D LiDAR technology with computer vision and machine learning to monitor handwashing without identifying personal information. In addition, LiDAR technology can be trained to detect people who need special cares and to provide social distancing analysis.

These technologies are based on Hitachi Smart Spaces and Lumada Video Insights – proven IoT and AI solutions that have been delivering insights to smart cities, airports, factories, transit, retail and more to help improve efficiency and safety around the globe.

Organizations can combine this data with existing data and perform machine learning analysis to identify trends, potential high-risk areas, or to assist in operations management and auditing.
