Crowd Detector module in Xeoma “Detect social distance” is a new feature in AI-based ‘Crowd Detector’ additional module. This module is based on neural network technologies of artificial intelligence, which is able to detect the presence of many people in the camera image and live stream and detect distance between them.

The Crowd Detector by Xeoma uses the artificial intelligence technologies: using its ‘knowledge’ and ‘experience’ (taken from the provided datasets), the module is looking for human heads or humans in the camera field of view based on the specific characteristics of them. You need to tick ‘Detect social distance’, then create a line (proper distance between people), configure other parameters and press ‘OK’. If the distance between people is too short (shorter than the line), then you’ll see the message “Distance violation” on preview.

You can get notifications, alarms and other reactions triggered automatically at detection of a distance violation – just connect the corresponding reaction module in modules chain after the Crowd Detector (e.g. ‘Sending email’ or ‘Sound on the client/server’). The module’s work can be integrated with external systems (with the “HTTP Request Sending” module) or programmable reactions (with the “Application Runner”).
