Zyfra, Finnish-Russian digital solutions provider for heavy industries, has developed a product that could reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19 at industrial and other facilities.

The system, based on artificial intelligence and computer vision, allows automatic mask monitoring with the help of video analytics, monitoring of the safe distance between employees and real-time reports about violations. Additional functions like measuring body temperature and alerting employees about a violation of a safe distance are also available.

‘A lot of clients have become concerned about occupational safety. They have started paying attention to solutions that used to be second or even third priorities for digitalization – those related to staff positioning and supervision over what the staff is doing at any specified moment,’ said Liana Meliksetyan, Chief Operating Officer at Zyfra.

According to her, companies understand that to start working after the lockdown it is necessary to ensure that people contact each other minimally.
