One of the key challenges in containing infectious diseases such as COVID-19 from spreading is the lack of a safe and cost-effective way to perform early detection of potential carriers at scale. It is particularly damaging when the virus has a long incubation period, rendering 1-shot checks, such as those performed at airports, largely ineffective. What is desperately needed is an inexpensive way to continuously screen large populations, such as in hospitals, workspaces, classrooms, buses, cafes, and homes. This project aims to use low-cost (~$300) thermal cameras to perform continuous skin temperature measurements, enabling anyone to perform fever screening remotely and safely.
Our system uses inexpensive thermal cameras (~$300) that anyone can install and use.
We automatically detect people to enable placement in different environments.
We develop accurate 3D thermal models to ensure correct identification of people with fever.
The system generates real-time notifications to alert users.
