Hytera develops contactless biometrics and fever detection for body cameras and access control
Chinese company Hytera has released non-contact body temperature detection and communication technology for coronavirus frontline workers to reduce the spread of the virus, the company announced.
Land border crossings and immigration customs control points at ports and airports can leverage the technology to monitor and detect travelers that have a fever. Hytera’s technology enables remote, contactless detection of body temperature of multiple people simultaneously and up to a distance of 3 meters. When a high temperature is detected, a notification is sent to Hytera PNC550 PoC radio devices and the person placed in isolation.
Hytera VM780 body worn cameras (BWCs) can also help with conflicts between travelers and customs officials who will be filming the conversation at all times, the company says. The body cameras stream live video over 4G and Wi-Fi networks for enhanced transparency in the field.
Non-contact detection equipment is in increased demand for the healthcare environment where there is a high need for such detection methods to process patients. A Hytera temperature measuring device with biometric facial recognition and remote temperature measurement technology can be installed at hospital gates, reception areas and offices.
Hytera says its facial recognition technology identifies faces even if a mask is worn, and it creates a data log of people, their temperature and time of entry and exit for accurate tracking. Doctors can use the technology to remotely diagnose patients, while the radio’s touchscreen works with gloves to prevent infection.
The bodycams can be worn by paramedics for live streaming from the ambulance for doctors to have real-time monitoring of their patients and even give advice for urgent medical interventions.
Hytera temperature measuring terminals can be deployed at buildings’ gates or entrances to detect employees that may be sick, at residential buildings, metros and even railway stations.
The new offering is the latest in a series of products launched to assist contactless fever detection, and facial recognition technologies promising accurate identification of people wearing face masks.
