Construction site security should be one of the most prioritized items on a construction site. Keeping track of who walks in and out of the construction site can play a major role in moving the schedule forward. Take a look at the power of autonomous security with facial recognition technology!
Facial recognition is a type of biometric (or the use of a person’s unique biological trait like fingerprints, retina, face etc. to find out the identity) software that records a person’s facial features in mathematical form and stores that information as a face print.
Ziva, for example, is a two-wheeled, image-capturing robot that Casta describes as a temporary closed-circuit TV for jobsites. The robot, which can travel up to 11 mph and has a 12-hour battery life, utilizes cameras and facial recognition software to identify people and vehicles present and if they’re allowed to be in the area. Ziva would cost about $1,300 a month to rent in the U.S., which Cary said is a substantial saving when compared to security camera and guard costs.
Worker safety is increased by the ease of creating restricted areas within the site to limit those entering and to keep away anyone who could be hurt by the work performed in the area. Site access can be granted, rescinded, and changed easily through the associated software.
