WISKA: Contactless body temperature measurement via CCTV
Industrial and shipbuilding supplier responds to current safety requirements
"Security through CCTV video surveillance is part of our daily work, so it was only logical for us to start right here especially with the need for increase safety measures in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. With the new camera solution, we are able to meet the protection requirements for guests and employees exceeding the required social distance measures, contact-free but with AI-precise accuracy at +/- 0.3°C," says Ronald Hoppmann, WISKA General Manager.
For indoor applications, a distance of 3 meters is required between the camera and blackbody. The blackbody is the device used to measure and reference the temperature. An individuals forehead temperature is measured with high efficiency and in real time – at different distances depending on the product version. The unit can measure up to 15 people simultaneously; this makes the solution equally suitable for low to high traffic areas. Measurements are reliable even when wearing a mask and result messages can be supported by an integrated alarm management. WISKA only displays, does not store or process the data generated - all legal requirements are met.
"The safety requirements have increased across all areas – that is why we are now thinking of new applications for our products. In particular, video surveillance offers unexpected possibilities, from body temperature measurement to fully automated mask recognition to access control in high traffic areas, there are hardly any limits to development - certainly also for the maritime industry. And best of all: These solutions can be seamlessly integrated into our existing CCTV networks," explains Rico Feldmann, Director Business Unit CCTV at WISKA. With their digital video systems, WISKA offers internationally certified solutions for a wide range of applications, from outdoor to indoor, night vision and explosion protection to searchlight combinations.
