AIQ, a technology pioneer focused on driving AI-powered transformation across industries, has entered into a new collaboration with Milestone Systems, one of the largest providers of video management software in the world, in order to elevate health and safety monitoring for industrial sites.

Under the collaboration, SMARTi, an award-winning Intelligent Operational Safety Monitoring solution developed by AIQ, will be applied to Milestone’s XProtect VMS platform. This AIQ’s product delivers AI-enabled, real-time active monitoring of industrial facilities and work sites, enhancing operational safety.

According to the statement, AIQ will be able to scale the product seamlessly across industries and markets. The collaboration also focuses on optimizing hybrid infrastructures, maximizing the efficiency of edge and cloud computing for the sophisticated processing of video and sensor data.

SMARTi was developed to improve health and safety in industrial environments, by using AI-enabled computer vision of the existing CCTV feeds for intelligent monitoring, detection, and reporting of safety protocol violations and incidents.

The AI application utilizes existing video systems combined with analytics to detect PPE compliance, behavioral safety, and incident detection, with automated reporting to a central command app. It is currently deployed and makes more than 1 billion predictions a day for AIQ’s clients.

AIQ CEO, Dr. Chris Cooper, stated that, “Through the integration of our award-winning SMARTi solution with Milestone Systems XProtect platform, AIQ is reinforcing our commitment to leading operational safety worldwide. Together with Milestone Systems, we aim to empower our clients across multiple industries to significantly improve their ability to monitor safety and compliance, to better react to incidents, and enhance their overall HSE cultures.”

“At Milestone, we work with best-of-breed technology leaders. This integration promises to enhance our video technology offerings and take our innovations to the next level. We’re excited to welcome AIQ to our thriving partner ecosystem. Integrating their technology with our open platform, data-driven XProtect VMS creates exciting new possibilities for our customers,” said Sebastian Döllner, Vice President of Technology Partnerships and Open Platform at Milestone Systems.
