Ramco Unveils Touchless Facial Recogniton System


COVID-19 has brought the focus back on hygiene, and the concern around employee safety and health has gained paramount importance.

The Ramco Innovation Lab in Singapore unveiled an advanced facial recognition based Time & Attendance System – RamcoGEEK, embedded with Temperature recording and IoT sensor doors to enable organisations to move towards a ‘Touch-less’ attendance and workplace access.

The Ramco Innovation Lab unveiled the innovation, which drew upon its own facial recognition-based attendance system deployed across multiple organisations, and combined it with a thermal imaging device for temperature measurement as well as other associated software. This enables organisations to track staff or visitors with high temperatures that may indicate infection and build in operating procedures to avoid further contaminations caused by finger/thumb based biometric scanners.

RamcoGEEK for Attendance with Temperature capturing can:

-Detect and match the faces of staff members and mark their attendance along with temperature. Where facial based attendance is a privacy concern, enterprises can replace it with Voice to register access.

-System is linked to an IoT sensor powered door that can restrict access in case the temperature is higher than normal and auto apply leave on behalf of the employee.

-Communicate the information to HR and management in real-time.

-Track the movements of a high-temperature staff in the workplace.

RamcoGEEK for Visitors can:

-Send notifications when RamcoGEEK encounters a person with a very high temperature to the Facility Manager/Facility Admin.

-Track the movement of that person within that premise.

RamcoGEEK for Contact Tracing can:

-Send notifications/alerts to all those employees, customers, vendors and others who have interacted with the at-risk person, in the event any person develops COVID-19 symptoms/diagnosed.

-The Track and Trace system is capable of reading Outlook calendar, Credit card spend data, trip details from Uber Lyft and Grab (subject to permission) to identify people met, Hotels stayed, Flights taken, Taxi drivers used and use this information to help identify employees at risk.

-Reverse tracing can also be initiated based on data around positive COVID-19 cases from external environment – for instance, a positive case of COVID-19 at a restaurant can alert all employees who have dined at the restaurant to be quarantined (based on bills raised).

-Help HR set up its own procedures to seek recent movements of the affected person, based on the information provided by the attendance system.

-This piece of software could be leveraged provided RamcoGEEK could get access to the data specified above. And this data could be stored in organisation’s premises or could leverage Ramco’s cloud for storing the same.

-Support authorities with essential information, if needed (e.g., to facilitate contact-tracing).
