Thailand pilots Dermalog’s biometric border control solution with fever detection


Dermalog’s biometric border control solution with fever detection

Amid fears of coronavirus rapidly spreading around the world and other infectious outbreaks, Dermalog has developed a biometric border control system that detects fevers, the company announced.

The technology has already been showcased during a press conference by the Thai Immigration Bureau deputy commissioner Pol Maj-Gen Surapong Chaichan at Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok on February 12.

The system integrates fever detection and immediately identifies potentially infected travelers at border entrances to control epidemics. Thailand is the first country to test the fever detection system by integrating it into its biometric border control infrastructure. As a result, the system will start not only registering fingerprints and facial images, but it will also measure body temperature and immediately inform an officer that the person needs a health check.

The technology consists of an advanced camera integrated into the entry-exit border system. When the person is in front of the border official, it instantly calculates temperature, with accuracy up to 1.5 meters away, and can process multiple people at the same time.

Thailand’s Immigration Bureau has used Dermalog’s biometric border control solution to process more than 49 million people since it was introduced in May 2019 and in that time has detected over 4,300 people on a national blacklist and some 127,000 travelers in breach of visa violations.
