OpenCV AI competition is focused on solutions solving real world problems using spatial AI. Teams will use the new OpenCV AI Kit D (OAK-D) to solve their challenge areas. The OAK-D is a smart camera with neural inference and depth processing capability on board.
Four members of UCA Datalab (Ángel Ruiz, Andrés Millán, Lionel Cervera and Blas Salvador) had entered the challenge. Their team, named Caleta, proposes the project “NeoCam: Real time telemonitoring of preterm neonates”. With the OAK-D they will measure respiratory rate of premature babies, classifying those values as normal or abnormal. In the later case an alarm could be generated and sent to the doctor in charge. They will also use the data collected by the OAK-D to detect sleep and wake cycles, and motion patterns.
Caleta Team’s project would avoid the need for probes attached to the skin of newborns, and ensure better medical care with early detection of abnormal situations. Our researchers have already passed phase 1 of the competition, and are now competing in the finals.
We wish them good luck and hope the best for their project!
