A growing Indian tech company ShepHertz developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) based solution SchoolProtect to catalyze the security arrangement in schools.

The facial recognition solution works by matching the faces in the camera footage against a registered database of photographs. The solution can fetch attributes of recognized faces such as the name of the students or faculty members, their division, their parents/spouse, and their age.

Along with the ability to detect known and unknown people on the TV monitor, its intelligent alarm system will be able to pro-actively trigger as soon as any incident begins to happen, including scenarios like a person who is neither a student nor belongs to the faculty or the management is entering the school so that the security can validate if the person has authentic reasons of being inside the school premises.

Besides security features, the solution also supports attendance management of students, teachers & staff and in future will support the ability to analyze classroom behavior through gestures and emotions. Through an intuitive dashboard, SchoolProtect provides comprehensive descriptive, predictive & prescriptive analytics.

School buses, which have cameras installed, can be powered with this solution to ensure complete child safety during transit. The solution will enable schools in analyzing threats in a better way by recognizing expelled students, local substance dealers, people who have posed threat in the past, unusual behavior or any person entering prohibited areas.

Founder of ShepHertz Siddhartha Chandurkar said "AI is no more a technology that is restricted to research labs. In the coming years from now, AI will have a similar impact on our lives as the internet has.”

He added “With SchoolProtect, we aim to make schools and students in transit safer. This technology will allow parents and school management to monitor in a better way, have more control and increase the overall level of security."
