As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, biometrics companies are modifying and upgrading their biometric identity systems with facial recognition software and temperature sensors to offer new capabilities that comply with the regulations. They are introducing novel access control biometric identification systems.
When individuals enter buildings, they are screened by thermal imaging cameras added to the biometric access control and incident management solution to look for potential COVID-19 cases. A computer vision device with thermal imaging and biometric facial recognition technology conducts the screening. If a fever is found, the system notifies a smartphone user, and hospital personnel will isolate the patient.
The upgraded technology includes thermal imaging, biometric authentication, and event management tools. It has been implemented in two businesses in the United States and the Netherlands, as well as in Israel’s local government system and geriatric medical center. It is scaleable for big organizations because it can scan thousands of people.
The next natural development was automated thermal imaging technology. The technology can be used in workplace buildings, shopping malls, college campuses, sports stadiums, and cultural institutions. It is contactless and non-intrusive. To strengthen security infrastructures, digital heat sensors can be integrated into digital security technologies like biometric face recognition.
