Machine vision and artificial intelligence (AI)-powered cameras are gaining traction due to their ability to spot the subject’s movements, read people’s temperature, and can even detect suspicious behaviours.
In the time of COVID-19 pandemic where physical distancing is crucial to curb the spread of the disease, such technologies are useful to remind people to keep their distance and adhere to the standard operating procedure (SOP).

With its technological capabilities, MIMOS has developed Physical Distancing Monitoring Tool, an AI-powered monitoring system that can issue an alert when anyone doesn’t practice physical distancing.
The camera system detects movement of people and their distance from one another. People who remain more than one metre apart would be highlighted in green circles. If a person failed to follow the stipulated distance, he or she will be indicated in red circles, thereafter triggering a warning siren. The system is currently being installed at MIMOS’ campus in Bukit Jalil.
On top of that, MIMOS has also deployed SMART Lockup, an intelligent surveillance system that integrates advanced video analytics for early detection of suspicious behaviours to aid rapid response.
The technology provides high accuracy and low false alarm rates, early intervention and rapid response to prevent incidents such as fights, vandalism or other misbehaviours, and real-time alerts for round-the-clock monitoring.
Developed by MIMOS in collaboration with Royal Malaysia Police, the productivity and effectiveness of the monitoring process in prison have improved significantly.
Both Physical Distancing Monitoring Tool and Smart Lockup were promoted at the Aspirasi Keluarga Malaysia exhibition at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from December 9 to 12.
