Smart City Peachtree Corners deploys Cawamo’s AI camera tech for COVID-19 safety and security – IoT Now – How to run an IoT enabled business

Peachtree Corners the nation’s smart city environment powered by real-world infrastructure and next-generation connectivity announced the addition of revolutionary artificial intelligence-powered camera technology from Cawamo at City Hall aimed at increasing public safety and preventing the spread of COVID-19.

The international firm’s proprietary technology enables existing cameras to determine if someone is not wearing a mask or a group of people are not observing social distancing guidelines, immediately alerting city personnel.

“As further reflection of our smart city leadership, our work with Cawamo to customise a COVID-19 monitoring system for City Hall shows how technology is helping to solve modern problems, while also prioritising privacy,” says Brandon Branham, chief technology officer and assistant city manager of Peachtree Corners.

“Our highest priority, and the aim of a smart city concept overall, is the safety and security of our residents and we firmly believe this technology will help us maintain important public safety protocols as we work to slow the spread of the virus. Allowing us to instantly convert existing cameras into smart cameras also shows promise for wider deployment across the city, in addition to within workplaces in the near future.”

Feature rich platform – combining artificial intelligence, cloud and edge computing

“As the first cloud-edge video analytics company to develop mask and social distancing detection technology that connects with any existing security camera, we are thrilled to be helping the City of Peachtree Corners keep its citizens safe using the already-installed security cameras around the city,” says David Yakov, CEO of Cawamo.

“Peachtree Corners is a premier smart city known around the globe for its dedication to the development of emerging smart city technologies, so it was a no-brainer for it to be the first city in the United States to deploy the technology. We are honoured to be providing mask and social distancing monitoring for the city and hope we can expand our footprint and help other municipalities, businesses and organisations with the same level of protection.
