Why smart flooring solutions?
- A large amount of technology is deployed to understand the activity of people’s flow in an infrastructure (energy, resources, security, walking behavior, fall detection, costs optimisation). Smart flooring can answer a majority of these challenges.
- Current technologies such as camera-based systems reach good precision but are intrusive and require delicate calibration and are also not suitable to facilities with variable spatial arrangement.
- Today most infrastructures rely on estimations made by staff or several distincts sensors that do not bring enough and simple actionable information in real-time due to their lack of multifunctionality.
A smart flooring technology is embedded sensors underneath the floor that can recognise any events on it (fall, direction, walking speed, etc..).
Hardware - Smart Floor
There are two main cores in Technis smart flooring :
- pressure sensors on the floor are used to sense all the events you can imagine. The extremely precise technology allows Technis to capture all the valuable datas used in the Technis Artificial Intelligence.
- electronic developed by Technis is able to scan large surface at a very high speed in order to sense everything on the floor. It has the ability to adapt to all size of surfaces: an entire room, an entrance/exit, etc. whatever the dimension desired.
A Technis Box gather all the raw datas and perform a first digital filtering prior to sending these datas to the Technis Cloud.
Software - Artificial Intelligence
At Technis, we use AI methods to recognize and to classify the different events that happen on our sensitive surface. The flexibility and the ability to learn new patterns make our model very robust and powerful and offer limitless possibilities of applications.
There are two levels of intelligence at Technis :
- AI developed for recognition of patterns on the floor (impact of foot, of wheels, tracking people, fall detection, etc..) is pivotal to deliver Technis’ analytics.
- Data crossing layer (integration of external data provided by others sensors or humans) to optimise even more precisely the situation (Business Intelligence).
