STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Nokia has set up an automated system that uses a thermal imager and real-time video analysis to determine if a person has symptoms of COVID-19 and wears a mask as part of protecting employees when they return to work.
The Finnish company has been using the system for two months at its plant in Chennai, India, and has inspected more than 200,000 people at this facility. Following the outbreak of the coronavirus, the factory, which has been closed for a while to meet Indian regulations, employs more than 1,000 people.
The system detects if a person has a high temperature or is not wearing a face mask and alerts the operations center, Amit Shah, head of Analytics and IoT Nokia, told Reuters.
It has privacy settings where faces can blur to meet local regulations and can be installed in different locations and monitored from a central facility without keeping any person at any checkpoint."Nokia's factories and R&D centers are deploying this," Shah said, adding that "the system was in a fairly advanced stage" in North America, Latin America and Asia, as well as in sectors including schools and government buildings. is.
