AS the current COVID-19 pandemic sweeps the globe and dramatically alters the way we all go about our daily lives, governments and businesses are turning to advanced innovative technologies to limit the risk of contagion.
UK Government guidelines state that if employees develop a new, continuous cough or have a temperature of 37.8 degrees Celsius or above, they must self-isolate and get tested.
To support businesses with the challenges they face in keeping their staff, customers and visitors safe, safety technology company, Vision Techniques, better known for their vehicle safety solutions, have launched VT IPATH.
VT IPATH is a high temperature alert system that identifies body temperatures often associated with viruses and infections such as the existing COVID-19 virus, seasonal flu, common colds and many other transmittable disorders. VT IPATH detects and measures temperature and provides an accurate reading of a person’s body temperatures in real time, records and notifies of an abnormal temperature, and enables you to make quick and informed decisions to protect your employees’ and visitors’ health.
In addition to VT IPATH’s temperature monitoring ability, the system also provides clear identification, using facial recognition, enabling you to accurately match recorded data to individuals. This functionality can also be used as an entry control system – alerting you to unauthorised personnel. The system works by alerting both the individuals directly and the system administrator if an abnormal body temperature is detected and by recording the captured data in the system’s back end for historic reporting.
The VT IPATH features a 7” touch screen display, which runs the software interface and the fast and accurate detection registers identity in 0.5 seconds at a rate of 99.9% accuracy.
The protection system can be used in a range of environments or applications, especially in areas where the management of people flow, traffic and security need to be monitored; especially on entry and exit points of buildings and work sites. Applications include offices, warehouses, factories, exhibitions, supermarkets and shops, health care environments, educational facilities, airports, train stations and bus stations.
