Artificial intelligence being used by L&T to detect masks and social distancing

The white paper deliberates on the use of artificial intelligence by L&T for ensuring safety at its sites

To detect absence of face masks and improper social distancing among workmen, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has said it is using artificial intelligence (AI) since the outbreak of COVID-19. The use of artificial intelligence was invaluable to identify and reinforce to everyone the importance of wearing masks and social distancing with challenges faced by everyone during the pandemic and the measures necessary to stop the spread of the virus, L&T said.

“Since the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, this technology was also used to detect absence of face masks and improper social distancing by workmen”.

“AI engines identify such erring individuals and locate their supervisors in real time and communicate with the supervisors immediately,” The engineering and construction giant said in a whitepaper.

The white paper deliberates on the use of artificial intelligence by L&T for ensuring safety at its sites.

At L&T project sites, artificial intelligence platforms are deployed at present to identify absence of safety jacket or helmet, workmen wearing no safety shoes and other such violations, it said.

Such safety data is collected on a regular basis to measure safety violation trends and take corrective systemic actions.

Artificial intelligence engines identify those contractors whose workmen consistently violate safety regulations. This helps project heads to engage with such contractors to improve their safety standards and ensure overall compliance, it added.

For instance, the company’s artificial intelligence platform found 219 unsafe acts and conditions in December last year at a particular construction site in southern India where L&T is developing a port-related infrastructure. On the other hand, the environment, health and safety (EHS) team manually found only 11 such violations.

This indicates that artificial intelligence is 19 times more effective in finding unsafe conditions and acts than the manual identification, it added.

“We at the company take safety seriously and take consistent efforts to improvise on the safety compliance at all sites and production shops that we work in or operate from”, said the company’s spokesperson.

The spokesperson added that towards this goal, the firm’s digital teams took the plunge in enhancing safety at construction sites and deployed latest technologies such as AI to detect non-compliance in real time. “We are proud to have successfully implemented AI platform at sites in a phased manner”.

The company will continue further development of AI platform, as it firmly believes that can only be positive in its mission to have all workplaces with ‘Zero Harm’, thereby protecting precious human lives, the spokesperson said.
