AA MONITORING TRAILERS

The AA trailer can be deployed in any outdoor environment to collect environmental and people data, such as particulate matter, CO2 levels, occupancy, social distancing and more. The onboard solar panels and energy management system allow the trailer to operate from solar power, and its onboard modem transmits the de-identified data to AWS for analysis and cloud-based, user-interface from anywhere.

This computer vision processing unit provides data extraction and analysis on-site, relaying only the selected data back to the cloud. It can be programmed to collect any data available from 60FPS video, de-identifying people, and providing useful information on the use

COMPUTER VISION ANALYSIS & WEB-INTERFACE

The computer vision interface enables users to understand a variety of people-based analytics, such as how many people occupy a space over time, which zones have the most movement, how long people are dwelling in a particular area and how close in proximity they are to each other. This information has helped businesses reopen safely during the COVID pandemic as well as helped building managers understand how their spaces are being used day-to-day.
