LiDAR-Powered Safe Distancing Technology
In an effort to help public venues safely re-open and address public concern over the spread of COVID-19, iinside offers SafeDistance, a free upgrade to its LiDAR-powered solution for monitoring and analyzing crowd density in public spaces. Built on top of iinside’s iQueue technology used for monitoring and analyzing passenger flows at airport security checkpoints, iQueue SafeDistance utilizes 3D LiDAR to help airport, venue and facility managers monitor and mitigate crowding and congestion, and maintain safe distancing within their venues. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology uses safe, invisible laser beams to detect objects both in motion and at rest. LiDAR is reportedly more accurate than Bluetooth or Wi-Fi-based monitoring systems, and unlike video cameras, LiDAR not only safeguards personal identity, but also generates detailed 3D spatial maps to precisely track object movement and spacing. LiDAR sensors are placed throughout venues and facilities to capture the data necessary for SafeDistance to predict or identify over-crowding and trigger an alert to venue and facility managers. The solution allows building management to monitor the effectiveness of customer spacing efforts 24/7 and take the necessary action to preserve safe distancing practices. Building and facility managers can access historical heat maps that highlight zones where crowd spacing falls below configurable parameters, or track real-time spacing between passengers, customers, employees or sports fans to help manage safe social distancing.
