Addressing Worker Safety and Accident Prevention with AI

Paper presentation at IoT 2021.

IoT 2021

Jaroslava Huber (Pro2Future GmbH) und Martin Schobesberger (Institut für Pervasive Computing) presented the paper at the 11th International Conference on the Internet of Things.

The paper titled “Addressing Worker Safety and Accident Prevention with AI” presents a conceptual and technical framework for a multimodal cognitive HumanAI system for worker safety and accident prevention. The authors incorporate two common approaches to safety (Safety-I and Safety-II), focusing primarily on the implementation of the latter. The framework of the system, which is envisioned to serve industrial workers, integrates a work assistant with an emergency break assistant. Purposeful interaction between workers and the system is based on the system’s context awareness.
