FogHorn Lightning™ Health Solution


Improve Workplace Health With Real-Time Video & AI

The Lightning™ Health Solution from FogHorn uses artificial intelligence (AI) to turn infrared and standard RGB video cameras into valuable sensors that can help health professionals mitigate the spread of COVID-19, viruses, and colds. The solution allows you to easily remind employees of proper protocols and report on employee compliance.

The AI solution contains pre-trained machine learning models that recognize elevated body temperatures (with supported infrared cameras) social distancing adherence, mask use and even cough detection through audio streams.

When an event is detected, like a missing mask or a potentially high body temperature, the solution performs a variety of real-time notifications, including alerts on live dashboards, instant notifications through email or text and automated logging to a central dashboard for compliance reporting and historic analysis.

FogHorn Health


This document assumes that Intel SmartEdge-Open (formerly known as OpenNESS) with Minimal Flavor and the FogHorn base platform was installed. For installation of the FogHorn base platform on top of SmartEdge - please see the following documentation:



The license and solution file for the FogHorn Health Out of the Box solution can be requested by dropping a mail to learning@foghorn.io. The installation process is as simple as just importing the solution file into the base platform and specifying the IR and regular spectrum camera system which is used to monitor the elevated body temperature in the sensor section of the base platform.

Solution Retraining

The Health solution contains an integrated Web-based GUI which allows to retrain the visual detection model to the specific conditions for the detection environment which should be monitored (lighting condition, etc.).

Additional Information

FogHorn is the first edge-native AI solution in the market, delivering transformational business results.

Actionable insights in real-time for secure, on-site intelligence

The Lightning™ Edge AI Platform brings the power of AI to the edge, securely inside your business, where data is created and decisions are made. It delivers real-time analytics on high volumes, varieties and velocities of live sensor and machine data, and is optimized for limited compute and connectivity.

Higher quality predictive insights to drive organization-wide improvements

FogHorn’s Edgification™ technology allows machine learning (ML) models to be edgified (optimizing models for hyper-efficient edge execution), reducing model size by up to 80%. This moves ML and AI as close to the data source as possible, utilizing all of the available raw data, and enables faster and more efficient operation with better insights.

Reduce comms, cloud processing and storage costs by 100-1000x

Processing the majority of industrial sensor data at the edge radically reduces data transport and storage costs. FogHorn’s subscription, not consumption-based pricing further boosts savings. Additionally, less networking and security resources are needed. This approach is especially powerful in data intensive use cases, and ideal to handle the growing use of video sensors.

Works with all major cloud providers

FogHorn’s Lightning is cloud agnostic, facilitating hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. This avoids cloud “lock in”, increasing bargaining power and reducing sourcing costs. Many use case specific factors together can make one cloud solution much more cost effective than others, so keeping your options open is critical for current and future needs.

Taps easily into OT tribal knowledge

Foghorn Lightning is essentially a non-intrusive operational analytics and intelligence layer that runs on top of existing control systems. It provides an OT-centric toolkit for authoring and expressing events of interest (related to condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, failure detection, etc.). The tools easily enable expressing operator’s tribal knowledge into deriving actionable insights.

Leverages existing small footprint and controller hardware

Designed to run on existing industrial control systems and highly constrained edge compute devices, FogHorn enables real-time analytics and ML as close to the data source as possible. This minimizes investments in heavy compute or new industrial control systems, and the software can be right-sized based on available compute, from MBs of memory to multi-core servers.
