Technology to Measure High Temperatures in a Crowd
In these challenging times due to the coronavirus epidemic, there are some amazing new technologies that are already being put into use around the world. UpGrade Security Solutions came across a good example of new camera technology that helps medical professionals quickly identify those with a higher than normal temperature on a mass basis. It is now possible to measure high temperatures in a crowd with helmet mounted cameras.
LLVISION has created this helmet camera that is in use in Asia as you can see in this video. Note the initial title on the video says in English: “Kwong Kai Smart Helmet N901 Multi-purpose helmet: AI Temperature Gate + Smart Helmet.”
From LLVISION: We are now promoting our new solution: camera helmet to identify possible coronavirus carriers.

We have heard that coronavirus testing is going to be extremely important in the U.S. Here is the case for widespread testing:
Testing helps us deploy resources efficiently
We do not have an unlimited supply of things like ventilators, which can be used to help treat severe cases of the infection. If we know which areas will be hardest hit now and in the weeks to come, we can allocate federal funds and supplies to those areas so they’ll be able to administer better care.
Saving time and equipment in hospitals
Understanding who is or is not infected with the virus will allow hospitals to use the equipment and supplies they already have more efficiently.
While waiting for test results, patients have to be treated as if they are infectious, Health care workers have to use personal protective equipment like gowns, gloves and face masks whenever dealing with that patient. If a patient doesn’t have COVID-19, those supplies could have been saved for someone who does.
Social distancing becomes more effective
social distancing is a voluntary practice, one that many Americans can’t, or won’t, observe right now. One way to encourage more people to stay home, or governments to start shutting things down, is telling Americans exactly how bad the outbreak is. Many places in the U.S. have started enacting measures to limit social gatherings, like closing bars, restaurants and theaters, however, it’s not a universal practice.
Without knowing where the virus is spreading, we can’t say whether the municipalities that ought to be shutting down are doing so.
Verifying useful data going forward
Eventually we will be through the worst of this pandemic. At that point, our attention will start to turn from emergency measures to long-term responses, like what treatments or vaccines might help protect us from COVID-19 outbreaks in the future, and how we can avoid similar pandemics.
To make any of those predictions, we need data — and the most basic information we’ll need is knowing how many people were infected and where.
Technology to Measure High Temperatures in NY?
Here in New York we may simply need technology like the new helmet camera from LLVISION. And we will certainly have our privacy concerns if technology like this is introduced in the U.S.
