The face mask detector we build, potentially aims at ensuring public safety. Face mask detection offers several advantages to the monitoring personnel. These include face recognition and intelligent alerts. Face mask detection at public places shall ensure public health and safety. People without a mask can be easily identified and notified to wear mask before entering places like malls or transit areas like airports, train stations, etc. Face mask detectors are useful in enterprises too. They ensure whether the workforce maintains safety standards at work.
Our face mask detection system uses AI as a tool based on deep learning algorithms. It detects face masks in public places by performing detection in real time with the help of surveillance camera network. The mask detection system detects face mask in images as well as in live video streams.
As shown in the block diagram, we get to the results o mask detection in two stages.
