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.
