What does Nextcam do?
NextCam is designed to reduce the risk of accidents in industry and civil construction through computer vision and AI using smart cameras which generate indicators for supporting decision-making in order to identify whether professionals are using the correct safety equipment and following the necessary safety procedures.
Weekly reports are generated together with statistics and suggestions for improvements as well as daily cards on Whatsapp permitting direct monitoring of the human resource as well as the estimated risk. The indicators allow measurement of capacity to act on decisions, showing which solutions are the most effective and permitting that these are adopted before accidents occur. They will also show which teams need more attention and which aspect of training has the greater importance in relation to the use of PPEs, thus enabling the establishment of patterns in common which are the cause of accidents, such as unsafe behavior, and helping those responsible for Occupational Safety to act accordingly. In addition, should there already be infrastructure installed at a particular location, NextCam can work with our own intelligent software in the images and existing cameras.
The business model is based on cost of installation as well as a monthly recurring fee per camera
