In the fight against the Corona virus, we have developed artificial intelligence software. In combination with a smart camera, this software helps store-owners in monitoring the number of customers in the store. Has the maximum number of customers allowed in the store been reached? Then the screen will turn red and people will have to wait before entering the store.
A large national supermarket (Albert Heijn) in Franeker experienced issues with monitoring the number of customers that is allowed in the store. The owner of the supermarket asked ICIT to come up with a technical solution for his problems, and we did. ICIT developed an algorithm that is able to independently add up the number of customers in the store. Subsequently, a screen informs customers whether they can come in or not by turning red or green. A red screen? Too bad, the maximum number of customers, according to the guidelines of responsible shopping, has been reached. In this way, supermarkets do not have to count manually, using the number of shopping carts available. This makes both customers and employees feel safe and secure.
