ProtecteD—Your AI-solution for face mask detection in public places

ProtecteD, Deloitte Luxembourg’s new artificial intelligence (AI) solution, helps raise awareness and prioritizes health and safety in public places where wearing a mouth and nose covering is mandatory. Using image recognition and machine-learning technology, it monitors whether individuals are correctly wearing their face masks in public spaces by adding a visual overlay.

The solution can detect many different types of face coverings, including surgical masks, homemade masks, masks with patterns and prints, scarves, and bandannas. This frictionless detection occurs in real-time. ProtecteD does not only help organizations fulfill their internal health and safety guidelines but also encourages a group effort to comply with these guidelines.

AI can help all industries put the safety of society first

Whether in office spaces, sports arenas or on transportation, the ProtecteD solution can detect face coverings in a crowd, both in close-up footage and from a distance. In times of COVID-19, this solution can help organizations and society put safety first.

With the help of a trained deep-learning model, (live) video footage is passed through the solution, which detects the presence of face masks. The annotated frames are displayed on a screen in real-time.

Key features of our ProtecteD product

Real-time recognition: the model detects whether individuals are correctly wearing face masks in real-time and provides an instant output, helping organizations meet public health guidelines. As COVID-19 is an airborne disease, this instant detection is key.

Prioritization of health and safety: at Deloitte, taking care of each other is one of our shared values. In this global pandemic, Deloitte Luxembourg is providing tools to guide and assist a safe presence in the office and in public spaces while prioritizing the health of our staff and communities. ProtecteD can help you put safety first.

Cloud deployment: to provide full flexibility, we offer a cloud-based solution and an API connection to our model. This ensures that the solution is compatible with your current systems and environment.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and data privacy: ProtecteD does not store personal data nor use facial recognition. Therefore, everyone stays anonymous and no footage is stored. Individuals will be notified of the system’s presence in a given public space. Before implementation, a Data Protection Impact Assessment is performed to ensure GDPR requirements are met.

Visual AI facilitation of health and safety measures: the solution displays an output on a screen, allowing for real-time mask detection through visual overlays of the original footage. This can promote positive group behavior and increase people’s awareness of their surroundings.
