CCTV video surveillance systems are commonly used by businesses for property security. Requiring no changes to existing video surveillance infrastructure, Bigmate has developed an edge AI video analysis solution called Warny that enables AI computer vision capability in existing video surveillance systems. With Warny’s AI vision features, a high proportion of occupational accidents can be prevented, including those caused by behavioral mistakes, vehicle collisions and hazardous zone intrusions.
Employees are the most important assets of enterprises. Occupational accidents come at a significant cost to not only employees, but also the enterprises, society and economy.
During 2019 to 2020, according to Safe Work Australia, there were 120,355 serious work-related accidents in Australia which resulted in injury and disease to workers with absence from work of at least one working week. The compensation and lost time for each accident was on average $13,500 and 6.6 weeks.
Among serious work-related accidents, 23% of employees fell because of the work environment, 16% were hit by moving objects, and 7% hit objects with a part of their body. To prevent these types of accidents and improve workplace safety, ADLINK’s Australian AI solution partner, Bigmate, developed an edge AI video safety solution basing on the ADLINK DLAP-4000 edge AI platform to enable AI computer vision capability on existing CCTV video surveillance systems.
