Through computer vision techniques (CNN) THE COMPANY can detect and recognize the personal protection equipment while distinguishing parts of the body with PPE and the type of PPE in each part. An indicator was created to evidence whether the PPE properly covers the corresponding part of the body. The system screens the video images and it is fully able to perform a complete automatic evaluation of the indicators of PPE use with the main purpose of preventing potentially dangerous accidents in the workplace and ensure the proper accomplishment of safety rules.
