Digital and AI innovations on show at the Safety & Health Expo


A large number of companies have taken the opportunity to showcase their latest innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digital transformation at the Safety & Health Expo at Londons ExCel Centre from 16-18 May

Cognitica AI, a provider of innovative Artificial Intelligence (AI) based industrial safety products and solutions, launched their M, X and S Series products at the Safety & Health Expo in London

Their AI-driven industrial safety solutions took focus at the expo, placing an emphasis on employee safety through the use of intelligent detection software. 

1. Falco F1 AI: This product introduces a breakthrough in Vision AI technology by creating a 360-degree safety zone around mobile equipment like forklifts. It employs advanced AI algorithms to detect and alert operators about potential dangers, enhancing safety in industrial settings. Cameras are placed on the forklift which then then detect and highlight potential hazards such as other humans or objects to warn the operator. 

2. Falco P1 AI: With a focus on large, stationary machinery, Falco P1 AI provides constant AI vigilance in three dimensions. It emulates human eyesight, offering an always-on surveillance system that helps identify potential hazards and ensures the safety of the equipment and surrounding environment.

3. Falco X1 AI: Designed specifically for hazardous environments, such as robotic assembly lines, Falco X1 AI offers a flexible and adaptable Vision AI solution. It leverages AI capabilities to enhance safety, optimise productivity, and improve operational efficiency in challenging industrial settings.

4. Infy X1 AI: Infy X1 AI is a compact and versatile AI module suitable for a wide range of industrial use-cases. It can be applied in areas such as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) detection, component inspection, quality control, and more. The module harnesses AI technology to provide accurate and efficient analysis, contributing to improved industrial processes.

Speaking on the versatility of the product, Jukka Ahvonen, senior vice president of sales, Cognitica AI, Europe, commented, “One customer asked if we could detect a starting fire, so we developed for them something that can detect small flames within 20-30 m and then cause a fire alarm. It analyses the flame’s behaviour and movement, without the need of thermal.”

Asked if the company has plans for expansion into the Middle East, Ahvonen emphasised, “Definitely, where there is clientele or market potential, we are definitely interested.”

The company is currently India-based and is focusing on building its European organisation.

Also taking the opportunity to showcase their latest innovations, Safe365, a provider of digital health and safety solutions, exhibited their cutting-edge platform at the expo.
