Even as vaccines begin to roll out, the majority of the world and businesses are still maintaining mask mandates and social distancing requirements to help prevent the further spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many governments and businesses also see the value of maintaining healthy practices in a post-COVID world to help mitigate the spread of more common diseases such as the seasonal flu.

A leading company specializing in AI solutions and services, recently set out to develop a system for detecting face masks as well as monitor social distancing. While similar more complicated systems have been deployed in hospitals and public transit, the company aims to bring a simple and effective solution which abides by data privacy laws. To power their solution, the company had several key challenges and requirements an effective hardware platform needed to address:

  • Capable AI Performance  to handle both mask detection and social distance monitoring
  • Compact Deployment  capable of fitting into tight spaces and to be less conspicuous
  • Custom Built System capabilities allowing the company to configure deployments to their client’s needs


AAEON worked closely with the company to deliver a total solution to meet their needs, the UP Squared Pro board with AI Core XM2280 module. Along with industry leading service and support, AAEON provided several key advantages to powering this project:

  • Data Security with TPM delivers timely, accurate data while helping to comply with privacy laws and regulations
  • Flexible, Expandable  solution for easy scaling and reconfiguration to meet the needs of the company’s clients
  • Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ is supported by both the UP Squared Pro and AI Core XM2280


With the power and flexibility of UP Squared Pro with AI Core XM2280, the company is able to deliver their application quickly to customers. The support of AAEON and leveraging the advantages of the Intel ecosystem allowed the company to reduce their development time and bring their platform to market sooner. Smaller businesses, such as banks, can also take advantage of the compact system to finally bring an intelligent way to enforce mask requirements and social distancing without the investment in more expensive edge systems, while still ensuring safe and healthy practices that reduce the spread of disease.
