Using AI to detect fever in extreme Crowds to prevent the spread of viruses

At the start of the pandemic, staff at publicly accessible spaces are often assigned to take the temperatures of people entering venues. The time-consuming process prevents people with fevers from spreading the coronavirus. Temperature monitoring systems have since improved to help reduce manpower demand and minimise inconvenience.

Cyberport incubation programme alumni WildFaces Technology Limited’s solution can combine with its IQ Anti Contagion Suite, designed to work in extreme crowds, such as MTR and hospitals, to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. It can provide simultaneous scanning (e.g. 30 times within 3 seconds) to give the most accurate temperature reading of each person even in a crowd without having to ask people to stay in a queue. Other environmental factors, such as the weather conditions, will not hinder the system from tracking feverish suspects. The system can even protect the privacy of each passer-by and only track people with fever via an app, alert relevant personnel of such incident to prevent potential spread of diseases.

Startups that develop solutions for the betterment of society and living spaces have Cyberport's full support. We’re all in this together!
