Mask Detection and Alert System Integrated with CCTV

This is our second project that is a part of PROJECT REBUILD, which is an initiative that we started at Robotics and Automation Club to ease the transition of the “new normal” in our college post-COVID.
In this project, we used a machine learning model to detect whether a person is wearing a mask or not in the field of view of a specific surveillance camera. If a person was detected without a mask, it would alert them using a flashing light next to the camera.
The goal of this project is to ensure that students in our college strictly adhere to the safety guidelines.
Future additions to the system include, but are not limited to, thermal imaging to detect the body temperature of the people and detecting the distance between the people to ensure social distancing norms.
