In times of this global pandemic it has become imperative to check every individual for high temperature and flu-like symptoms. To aid in this detection of high temperature, a healthcare start-up named ARVI has launched a contactless thermal scanning kiosk which is based on Artificial intelligence technology alongwith deep learning to combine both facial recognition and thermal screening to detect high body temperatures in an individual as well as those individuals who violate safety protocols like the wearing of a mask. This product has been founded by a team of engineers from IIT Bombay and is designed and fabricated in India. These contactless and unmanned thermal scanning kiosks will have feature like temperature check, face mask detection, auto hand sanitisation and access/attendance management.
The USP of this product is that along with the above said features it will also screen blood oxygen, pulse and respiration rate of the user. There is absolutely no requisite of a human observation or intervention. There are certain places which need the placement of these hi-tech kiosks like restaurants, housing societies, banks, companies, manufacturing plants, schools, malls, hospitals, airports and corporate offices as they require effective screening solutions to contain the spread of COVID-19. The makers of this product have been able to successfully integrate advanced sensors and facial recognition.
The screening time of the kiosk is 1 second and the operation range stands between 15-42°C with an accuracy of +/- 0.2°C. The thermal scanners are priced between INR 60,000 TO 1.25 lacs.
