Once again, the team at Bosch is one step ahead of its competitors with regards to navigating through changes in the external environment and successfully adapting as a result. The below article provides a snapshot of how Bosch has modified its technologies to make environments healthier and safer during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Customers are actively looking for other access control alternatives like face recognition, mobile phone readers and new contactless biometric solutions like hand scanners. Bosch’s access control software is compatible with many kinds of access control devices that are available on the market and that support touchless access control.
Bosch Intelligent Video Analytics algorithms offer features like “person in field”, “birds-eye view counting” and “crowd detection”. These functions are used at entrances of supermarkets to count people that enter or to alert an operator if people enter restricted areas.
Retailers can use insights from cameras to prepare best for the time after the lockdown. Bosch In-Store Analytics is a solution that processes anonymous position data from various cameras in the cloud. Advanced algorithms filter the position data according to individual location environments and relevant behavior patterns.
In a final step, the data is intuitively presented through customized web interfaces.
Crowd management and physical distancing need to be managed well, particularly in the retail sector. The first end customers (e.g., shopping malls) are using their public address (PA) system to regularly remind all visitors to obey physical distancing rules.
As a consequence of physical distancing, seating arrangements in physical meeting rooms are altered to ensure participants can maintain the required distance from each other, making a good speech reinforcement solution more important than ever. Many people will also need to join meetings remotely via Skype, Teams, Zoom or similar platforms. Bosch conference solutions can be easily interfaced with applications such as these, ensuring participants can join the meeting from home while participants in the room maintain safe distances from one another.
