Hack 7 - Challenge 1 - Tracking Covid Hotspots

(0 reviews)
Free
In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, social distancing has become the 'new normal' for people across the world. Now that the majority of construction sites have re-opened after brief shutdowns, social distancing is even more important here due to the often a large number of people working on a site at any one time. This challenge involves creating a tool that alerts managers when workers are breaking social distancing regulations and detecting transmission hotspots on the site itself. 

Can you use existing technology to determine the number of times social distancing is broken in certain video clips? If a set rate of social distancing breaches is detected, can an alert tool be built to inform a supervisor that an area of site monitored by a specific video feed is a potential hotspot for Covid-19 transmission?

An advanced part of the challenge involves identifying transmission hotspots in the video. Can you identify areas where workers were closer together for longer periods of time, and overlay a heatmap over a still image from the video?
The article attached in Useful Resources give an example of how this problem can be solved by mapping the camera frame to bird eye view. It is reasonable to assume the pedestrians are 6 feet tall for the purpose of calculating distances between people.
