What is VACAN AIS?

Cameras will be set up on the ceiling, to automatically detect the level of congestion in facilities.
The AI will analyze the image data obtained, and count how many people are in the area.
Depending on where the camera is installed, it can also calculate the waiting time.

The congestion information can then be shared on smartphones and digital signages.
This can help prevent overcrowding and help provide safety,
while enhancing the convenience of customers.
