How might we improve the cleaning process through automated assessment and detection of reconditioned industrial drum?

What We Are Looking For

A working prototype solution that can help improve the efficiency of drum cleaning, in particular, the process in removing adhesive labels of drums exterior. The proposed solution should take into consideration the efficacy to reduce the amount of manpower as well as the increase in time and money savings. It should take into consideration that the drums are in varying dimensions and designs and should not compromise on the quality of cleanliness of the drum. Currently the manual process to remove the labels is between 5-20 minutes per barrel.

How might we automatically detect fall-from-heights and slip-trip-fall risks, near misses and alert authorised personnel for prompt intervention, to improve safety in construction sites?

What We Are Looking For

A scalable prototype solution that can be deployed, quickly and economically, in a dynamic construction site environment. It should automatically detect and alert authorized personnel of FFH and STF hazards, incidents, near misses, unsafe working conditions, and unsafe worker behavior in real time, to facilitate early interventions and prevent accidents. The solution should allow users to incident/hazard manage, such as customize their escalation channels for alerts based on the incident type, and track follow-up actions. Using information of where the hazards are and which workers are performing unsafe acts and where the unsafe conditions exist, the project manager/ supervisor can then engage the contractor to remove hazards or correct workers’ risky behaviours.
