Incorrect facemask-wearing detection using image processing and deep learning

Zeyad Qasim Habeeb, Imad Al-Zaydi


Now and in the future, a face mask is a very important strategy to protect people when a new contagious life threatens disease spread through the air appears. Currently, there is a serious health emergency because of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) epidemic. The negative consequences of this pandemic need to be protected in public areas. Numerous methods are advised by the World Health Organization (WHO) to reduce infection rates and prevent depleting the available medical resources in the absence of efficient antivirals. Wearing masks is a non-pharmaceutical strategy to lessen the susceptibility to COVID-19 infection. This research aims to create a face mask identification system that is efficient and uses deep learning, which has proven to be beneficial in many real-world applications. This system has also used a transfer learning method with the MobileNetV2 model to classify people who wear face masks properly, wear face masks improperly, and are without masks. The results demonstrate that the proposed system has an accuracy of 99.4% which is higher than current systems.
