Most instances of bullying in schools occur in the hallways and restrooms of the building. It is very uncommon for parents, teachers, and other adults in charge of children to struggle with assessing and monitoring these areas regularly and consistently.
This technological offering demonstrates a monitoring sensor for the Internet of Things (IoT) that does not need a camera or need to be worn. It is founded on millimeter-wave (mm-wave) technology combined with artificial intelligence (AI). It is designed to track motion and trails, identify falls, fights, and other potentially dangerous actions, and monitor these activities in public bathrooms.
In addition, the sensor is encased in inconspicuous housing designed with the highest possible levels of discretion and privacy. This housing was constructed to protect the user’s privacy. Because of this, they may be safely deployed in private locations such as toilets and shower facilities without compromising security with toilet cleanliness monitoring system.
Benefits and Specifications of New Technology
Components of this technology include our mm-wave sensor, which is modified and programmed with an algorithm on edge, and a communication module. Together, these two elements form the technology.
It can accurately locate people, dogs, and other animals while studying their movement and behavioral patterns since it has a range of up to 5 meters and a coverage area of 34 square meters. In addition to this, it helps in understanding several possible incidental patterns.
The active alarm system or button does not need to be pressed for the solution to determine whether a person has fallen and instantly sends an alert to the relevant stakeholders because it is equipped with edge computing that is ready for 5G. This is because the solution can determine whether a person has fallen, whether they press the button or the active alarm system.
Using the AI algorithm, the problem is solved by analyzing the peak and non-peak use patterns of the toilets at the cubicle level. The purpose of providing facility managers and cleaning providers with this information is to aid them in improving cleaning, water conservation, and other environmentally friendly building efforts.
Uses and applications that could be possible
This toilet cleanliness monitoring system technology is most useful in unmonitored restrooms and shower facilities because these areas pose a greater risk of slips, trips, and falls while reducing the likelihood that assistance will be immediately accessible. The primary application for this technology is in this type of environment.
The range of possible applications is quite broad, particularly in settings where personal privacy is valued, camera solutions are not appropriate, and in locations where concerns about cloud storage, bandwidth use, and maintenance costs are present. In addition, the range of possible applications includes settings where personal privacy is valued and camera solutions are inappropriate.
The benefits have a value that cannot be quantified:
- Absolute anonymity, with no worries that the content of the recordings made by the cameras would be divulged or shared inappropriately.
- The cost of storage and bandwidth in the cloud is much cheaper when compared to that of camera-based systems.
- quick aid and action made possible by a mix of anticipatory and reactive alerts and notifications
This system entirely protects each individual’s privacy while simultaneously monitoring important patterns to alert the guardian, facility management, and other vital stakeholders. It monitors the activities, velocities, and directions of individuals inside the restroom spaces, including each cubicle.
