Voxel’s software uses AI to identify potential hazards around an industrial site, using a company’s existing security camera network to provide real-time workplace surveillance.The system is trained to identify environmental and operational hazards such as blocked exits and potential collisions, as well as spills or misplaced items that could be a trip hazard.

The system can also identify potentially harmful activity by workers, such as if they pick up an object in the wrong position. This element of the software was trained using research from Stanford's biomechanics lab.

Once an issue is identified, an alert is sent to personnel to handle the problem.
