SwimEye saves lives

A drowning detection system for any pool

SwimEye – a drowning detection system

SwimEye is a computer vision system for the detection of drowning accidents in swimming pools.  

It works like an “extra lifeguard” under the water of your pool.   Our object recognition software tracks the movements of all swimmers in a pool.  And in the event of a serious drowning incident, SwimEye will improve the reaction-time of lifeguards as they initiate a rescue.

How Does SwimEye Work?

Our under-water cameras monitor and track the movement of all swimmers in your pool. This information is relayed back to the Computer Vision Detection System for automatic analysis. 

When SwimEye detects a swimmer in distress on the bottom of the pool, it will raise an electronic alarm to our Monitoring & Control Station, and to pool lifeguards.  Lifeguards can visually assess the developing situation within seconds of the event occurring.
