HDB to try out automated alert system for worksite safety

The Housing Board would be trying out a surveillance system that automatically detects high-risk situations at construction sites and sends alerts to the person in charge so as to improve worker safety and reduce the need for manual labour. There are two scenarios being tested by the system which uses video analytics and artificial intelligence. The project was in collaboration with the NUS School of Design and Environment with support from AI Singapore.
