The cloud and edge-based solutions offer a comprehensive framework that includes:

  • Elevated body temperature (EBT) screening that leverages automation and AI on edge to help enterprises screen their workforce or visitors in real-time for possible infection to isolate them and prevent them from entering the establishment.
  • Contact tracing that uses proven technologies such as GPS and Bluetooth Low Energy to provide completely voluntary and opt-In basis for building traceability.
  • Mask and social distancing compliance using video analytics algorithms to provide alerts when masks are not detected, or the distance between people walking together or gathering at a place is not sufficient.
  • Occupancy and workspace analytics to help real estate teams track metrics on floor occupancy, density and automate sanitation routines in common areas.

“The future of work will demand innovative solutions that enterprises can deploy rapidly, and at scale to ensure safety of their workforce while at the same time nurture collaboration and productivity. We are implementing some of these solutions, starting with EBT checks, across five million square feet of our own office spaces as we prepare for 20,000 Infosys employees to return to their workplaces in a phased manner,” said Nitesh Bansal, SVP and Head- Engineering Services of Infosys.
