This paper presents a methodology for social distance detection using deep learning models and algorithms such as YOLO and CNN. Deep learning is one of those technologies which have greatly enhanced the overall experience of the technology that humans use. Deep learning has brought a lot of changes from self-driven cars made by Tesla to the smallest object detection model. Deep learning, artificial intelligence, and machine learning provide a way to be able to put things to use. The purpose of this paper is to be able to implement real-time object detection to detect social distancing.
