Coronavirus, fever detection system by Athena Security
Publication/Creation DateMarch 13 2020
DescriptionIn this video, Chris Ciabarra demonstrates Athena Security's new Fever Detection System. On their website, they write that this system "provides fast, accurate mass screening for elevated temperatures. The system is non-invasive, non-contact, and fast. The system identifies the face of the subject, ignores hot spots like hot lights above and other hot objects on the person like a cell phone or hot coffee. The person looks at the camera, and the system finds the hottest point on the face near the eyes, called the inner canthus. Near the eyes is the area that most closely correlates with basal body temperature, so the subject needs to remove glasses and look at the camera. Athena is best utilized as the first of a two checkpoint system, where fever is then confirmed by a second medical thermometer".
