FeverSense: Catching Corona Before it Gets Past the Door

MachineSense is releasing a beta version of FeverSense a low-cost, infrared temperature scanning system that can be installed in the form of a gate or retrofitted to be installed at any entrance location for the automatic scanning of human body temperature.

The system doesn’t require human intervention to hold a temperature gun allowing for proper social distancing and, therefore making its operation safer and less expensive. It’s high-speed scanning capabilities also allow for a faster process.
FeverSense can be installed in a gate or retrofitted into an existing entrance. The machine scans the temperature of each individual as they come close to the system. This system would record the body temperature of every person who approaches the entrance of a retail store, factory or office, etc., and can be monitored and stored automatically.

MachineSense: FeverWarn - FeverSense - How it works

The system provides an alert if an elevated body temperature has been detected, allowing the person to be identified and isolated effectively. Further, the system is aided with a mobile app for self-registration of people who have been detected with an elevated temperature.
MachineSense is running a beta test of the FeverSense system with Novatec, Inc., a plastic machinery company located in Baltimore, MD which has been open during the state-mandated lockdown due to its classification as an essential manufacturing company.
Versions of a similar product to use in personal homes are planned.

In the at-home version, infrared technology will trigger an automatic doorbell alert that would sense if a person is standing outside, avoiding the need to touch a doorbell. The system would alert the homeowner if the guest has an elevated temperature,
