Contactless Technology Solutions::Face mask detection by video analytics AI

  • Using real-time video analytics AI tools such as face mask detection, we plan to start the visualization of the current state at Laforet Harajuku/Omotesandohills at the end of November.
  • A small camera placed at the entrance of the store detects faces “with” or “without” masks, and displays different messages to each group on a small monitor. We intend to look at changes in people’s behavior upon seeing the messages.
