The COVID-19 pandemic has made it a priority for organisations – particularly in the Transportation, Health and Events sectors – to be able to detect anyone with abnormally elevated body temperature (EBT) in order to ensure no virus transmission occurs. New regulations are taking effect, and organisations of all types are obliged to make sure they can comply with new measures. For some sectors, the most difficult part is to deal with crowds of people in motion and to make sure they wear a mask and do not have fever, the main symptom of Coronavirus.
Public places like airports, public transportation stations, concert halls, shopping malls, cruise companies and factories are seeking tools for preliminary temperature screening in their crowded infrastructures, in order to safeguard the health of their personnel and customers. Thermal imagers are not designed nor intended to diagnose or detect medical conditions including, viruses or other illnesses, but they have proven to be very efficient to measure skin-surface temperatures.
Our Panoramic Temperature Screening camera mIRcury® was designed to measure skin-surface temperatures in wide and crowded environments, in order to achieve fast and efficient preliminary temperature screening in busy public areas, without impacting the flow of people.
The unique panoramic screening technology of mIRcury captures and checks multiple people with elevated body temperature on the fly, wherever they are, whatever their posture, in the biggest crowds. When an abnormal skin-surface temperature is detected, the person is isolated and a second check is performed with a medical device, to confirm fever.
mIRcury is a barrier-free, non-invasive system, for continuous monitoring of body temperatures in crowds, complementary to other existing solutions on the market (sector cameras, hand held thermometers).
