In response to the immediate need for solutions to combat the spread of infectious diseases, WWT partnered with Intel to develop the Elevated Temperature Detection solution. Powered by Intel® Core™ Processors and leveraging Intel® RealSense™ cameras, this solution utilizes advancements in AI, machine learning and imaging for effective data capture and runs algorithms on the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit. Through depth and thermal sensing, we can now detect individuals with elevated temperatures, a primary indicator of virus infection.
WWT’s Elevated Temperature Detection solution is a nearly autonomous, stand-off cart that can be easily deployed in multiple environments including businesses, academic institutions, airports and entertainment venues to protect employees, clients, students and visitors by sensing individuals with elevated internal temperatures or symptoms of fever. The solution ensures the highest levels of accuracy and consistency by utilizing a combination of built-in deep learning models and advanced optics that focus on the inner corner of the eye (the eye canthus area), which is considered to be the optimal area for temperature detection.
