Kuwait Telecommunication Company, Ooredoo will offer an array of smart solutions to companies in the country in preparation for the gradual return to normal life, the company said on Saturday.
Abdulaziz Al-Babtain, chief business officer at the company, said in a press statement that the smart solutions include walking through thermal detectors, sanitizer gates equipped with thermal detectors and facial recognition, contactless attendance systems and social distancing solutions.
He revealed the utilization of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for facial recognition, contactless attendance and social distancing measures to optimize safety and COVID-19 prevention.
“Line crossing analytics will place virtual lines between employees to keep them within their own working area and will track compliance with health guidelines which also include wearing face masks,” he said.
“The world has changed since the onset of COVID-19, and we must adapt to the ‘new normal’. It is our duty to protect the nation by ensuring the availability of smart solutions to control the spread of COVID-19,” Al-Babtain said.
Kuwait decided on Thursday to ease the restrictions next week which were imposed to contain the spread of the COVID-19.
