When it comes to a viral infection, fever is one of the most frequent symptoms.
According to the German Robert Koch Institute, almost 90% of people infected with COVID-19 in China have been diagnosed with fever.
With an aim of preventive measures to contain the current pandemic, DERMALOG, a German company, has developed a camera which measures body temperature with outstanding accuracy and speed.
The biometrics company’s Fever Detection Camera, measures body temperature by scanning people’s faces using state-of-the-art sensor technology, providing fast and precise measurement results to significantly reduce the risk of infection spreading in many areas of daily life.
The DERMALOG camera can simultaneously check up to 5 people for fever.
If an increased temperature is detected, the system sets off an alarm or even denies access, for example, as part of an automated access control system.
High accuracy, even from a distance of up to 2 meters, is another advantage of the camera.
When using a handheld thermometer, the recommended safety distance cannot be maintained, which leads quickly to the spread ofinfections.
In contrast, DERMALOG’s automatic Fever Detection Camera does not require any additional operating personnel and, as a result, ensures extra safety.
The company’s solution is already in use at border controls, airports, trade fairs and events.
