AI AND SOCIAL DISTANCING
The system provides a display that shows where people are in the restaurant, using a green icon to indicate when they’re at least six feet apart and a red icon if they’re too close for too long.
The technology was developed by Known Quantity Sensors, a smart building company that uses AI and analytics “to inform and automate a variety of building operations and management use cases.”
R&D 100: SMART SENSORS MEAN ENERGY SAVINGS
For nearly 30 years, commercial buildings have relied on motion occupancy sensors -- a technology that a study has found can only accurately detect people about 75 percent of the time -- to control lighting and reduce energy costs. But now researchers at the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have developed a new low-cost smart sensor that raises the accuracy of detecting people to the upper 90 percent range according to initial studies -- an advancement that could lead to enormous energy savings in commercial buildings.
DEPT. OF HOMELAND SECURITY PARTNERS WITH NEW INNOVATORS TO BRING SMART CITY TECHNOLOGY FOR FIRST RESPONDERS
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and its research and development partners today selected 13 U.S. and international companies to develop smart cities technologies to assist public safety. The research and development work will focus on in-building sensors, unmanned aerial systems and on/off-body mobile SmartHubs, each of which will combine communications and sensors to increase responder situational awareness, building security and enhance mission-critical operations.
