SmartCrane: Real-time Human Detection System for Safe Crane Operation

University of the West of Scotland, Intebloc, CENSIS


This research project is motivated by the requirements from Intebloc and their desired of deploying a real-time human detection to make significant improvements to health and safety of the workforce during lifting operation. The project provides a new solution to increase the visibility of a crane operator using Artificial Intelligence and will address the challenges in providing real-time machine learning based human detection from top-view on a mobile platform (small-form PC) in complex operational environments. The system will be optimised for detecting people in complex operational areas from a distance up to 50 meters between the camera and the object.


Project ongoing.
