Improve Safety With Real-Time Video & AI
The Lightning™ Safety Solution from FogHorn uses artificial intelligence (AI) to turn video cameras into a valuable sensor that can help Safety professionals determine and easily report on employee compliance to personal protective equipment (PPE) use and even help identify hazards within the workplace to help prevent injury.
The AI solution contains pre-trained machine learning models that recognize a wide variety of PPE, including hard hats, high-visibility vests, flame-resistant clothing and safety harnesses. It can also be used to identify a range of potential hazards like slip/trip hazards, dangers from work on scaffolding to risks with moving equipment like overhead objects on cranes.
When an event is detected, like missing PPE or a potential hazard, 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.
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 safety Out of the Box solution can be requested by dropping a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The installation process is as simple as just importing the solution file into the base platform and specifying the camera system which is used to monitor the PPE equipment (basically all cameras with USB or RTSP protocol support can be used as sensors) in the sensor section of the base platform.
The safety solution contains an integrated Web-based GUI which allows to retrain the visual detection model to the specific conditions of the environment where the PPE equipment should be monitored (lighting condition, PPE objects, etc.).
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.
