Detection of human beings

Project No. FFFF 0211

Status:

completed 03/2002

Aims:

Usual electrosensitive protective devices are not able to distinguish whether there is an object or (part of) a human being within the region to control. Automatic picture analysis on the basis of comparing surface structures might be a solution if modified for work safety.

Activities/Methods:

Creating a data collection of surface structures; evaluation of the system under normal and worst conditions; determination of possible malfunctions.

Results:

The system is generally suitable for specific tasks in controlling dangerous regions; malfunctions caused by shadows remain a problem to be solved.
