    Dive Brief:

    • Construction safety software provider Smartvid.io is releasing on April 6 a new application for Vinnie, the company’s AI interface, that will be able to determine when workers on construction jobsites have not been practicing social distancing.
    • Using any cameras that Smartvid.io can connect to, Vinnie will be able to work as a virtual safety inspector and determine the distance between any two workers, said Josh Kanner, CEO of Smartvid.io.
    • Kanner said the goal of the new function is to prevent workers from getting sick from COVID-19 by using real-time updates or a daily report to indicate how often workers were in too close proximity. Sites with more cameras would benefit from having more spots covered.
