Driven by a vision to solve real-world problems by integrating advanced technologies like A.I., the Gurgaon-based start-up Staqu launched a new Thermal Camera under its video analytics platform, JARVIS. The latest technology will alert the system of anyone with a body temperature of above 37° C and examines heat signatures directly through the cameras, enabling authorities to identify and further inspect suspected Virus Carriers.

The camera has a range of up to 100 meters and can identify multiple people at the same time. The technology is functional and effective in scanning crowded places like Airports, Railway Stations, Malls, etc. The AI-powered system is enabled with a Sensitivity ranging from High sensitivity range of -40 to 160C or -40 to 320F, whereas the low sensitivity of -40 to 550C and -40 to 1022F. From airports to railway stations, the AI-powered Thermal Cameras can be installed at various hotspots of consequence for the purpose of early detection and prevention of the spread.

With the growing scare around novel Coronavirus and the possibility of our health infrastructure getting overwhelmed, the implementation of these cameras becomes pertinent and urgent. By reducing both the time and human effort required in identification, agencies can get ahead of the curve in controlling the spread of this pandemic.
