New facial recognition and fever detection systems for safe work environment launched



Biometric companies around the world are working on releasing advanced solutions to identify people when wearing masks, to introduce contactless tech to ensure environment safety and to develop fever detectors to assist global containment efforts.

Cali Group subsidiary PopID has partnered with Wasserstrom to launch a biometric facial recognition and temperature screening platform for companies to enable a contactless working environment, writes Kiosk Marketplace.

PopEntry+ is cloud-based technology that scans employees’ facial features and takes their temperature in a few seconds when arriving at work to create an additional security layer. It can be embedded in the door lock or on a wall inside the building. Companies that integrate the technology will receive a “POP-Certified” or “Protecting Our People-certified” designation for their work environment. The platform can be also be expanded to automatically detect people recently tested for COVID-19 or that have immunity, the report says.

THine Electronics develops facial recognition fever detector

Japanese semiconductor THine Electronics has released a biometric facial recognition system to detect fever that can identify people wearing masks, writes Nikkei.

The system can process body temperature from less than a foot away.

Although Japan’s state of emergency due to COVID-19 might end on May 6, fears of a second wave of infections are pushing the government and business to find solutions so the economy can reopen. The government has already developed an app that traces people who came in contact with coronavirus patients.

THine’s AI system has already been installed in places for large public gathering such as office buildings, hospitals, and shopping malls, and it can store up to 50,000 faces at once. The biometric facial recognition tech identifies people from up to 30 centimeters, while the fever detector can measure body temperature with a margin of error of 0.3 degrees Celsius, according to the report.

Contact tracing and facial recognition have raised privacy concerns, however, which led to some 300 experts writing a letter warning about the dangers of government mass surveillance.

THine Electronics has not commented on who owns the data and how long the information collected would be kept for.
