The devices have already been installed in few co-working spaces like Incuspaze and also in few IT Parks as a safety measure.
Agrex.ai, a video analytics company that helps organisations derive operational intelligence, monitor compliance and automate visual surveillance, has developed AI enabled thermal cameras to aid early detection of COVID-19 and combat the spread of the virus. With this global pandemic rippling across the world, the global healthcare sector has been under great distress. It has been duly noted that early detection of key symptoms can help in curbing the spread of COVID-19 and perhaps also save lives.
Agrex.ai’s thermal sensor-based detection system is capable of scanning a large number of people from a distance up to 20 metres. The camera comes with a ready to use plug and play system which can be set up within 10 minutes. The USP of the product lies in the fact that it scans temperature within a fraction of seconds eliminating the need to stop and scan each person individually. This enables users to examine 80-100 people in one minute, ensuring fast data collection.
“Keeping in mind the precautionary measures that firms are taking to ensure smooth functioning once people start accessing public places, we have started taking orders for installing devices across various locations. We currently have an order of 50 units and are also in talks with hotels, hospitals, and most major malls in Delhi for installing the device. We have also shared proposals with Municipal Corporations of multiple cities,” said Arush Kakkar, Founder, Agrex.ai
He further added, “Our devices have already been installed in few co-working spaces like Incuspaze and also in few IT Parks as a safety measure. We see a growing demand for the thermal camera across locations like hospitals, metros, railway stations, airports and other locations that witness the large public movements. Since one of the early-stage symptoms of COVID – 19 is a high body temperature, thermal cameras covert infrared radiations into detectable pixel values and generate an audio-visual alert. This aids in identifying potential cases early on, reducing the chances of spreading virus. To ensure that no false alarms are raised, our camera is equipped with an artificial intelligence-based system to detect humans and measure temperature from the face.”
