Dermalog and Pensees roll out computer vision temperature check systems for access control
Efforts to allow soccer players from the German Bundesliga to train while observing safe health practices are being supported by automated temperature checks by Dermalog technology.
Five of Dermalog’s Fever Detection Cameras have been deployed at different access points of Bayer 04 Leverkusen’s club site to scan the faces of players and coaching staff to measure their body temperature. The cameras have high accuracy at a distance of 2 meters, according to the announcement, and an alarm is activated if a high temperature is detected without the participation of operating personnel.
The FLC1 system used by Bayer 04 Leverkusen does not appear to include facial biometrics for identification, but optionally includes facial recognition with face liveness detection.
The Fever Detection Cameras are also in use at border control points, airports and events, and can be used to assist occupational safety efforts, provide access management, and protect shops, offices, and factories.
The new Intelligent Non-contact Body Temperature Monitoring System provides an infrared thermal body temperature scanning within 0.3 degrees Celsius, and includes a facial recognition access control module. The system features Pensees’ in-house developed face and body detection technologies, and automatically issues real-time alerts through voice message, lighting change, and other methods when a fever is detected.
The company says its integrated facial biometrics, temperature detection, and visitor management product is suitable for a wide range of public space and workplace deployments.
In the company’s local market, Singapore’s Productivity Solution Grant (PSG) can reimburse small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) for up to 80 percent of the cost of the system, as Pensees is a pre-approved solutions provider appointed by the Infocomm and Media Development Authority of Singapore.
