Until now, there were thermal cameras that helped measure the body temperature of people and determine if they have Covid-19 symptoms or not. Now, Vehant Technologies has developed a thermal camera named FebriEye that not just measures the body temperature but also detects face mask and social distancing violations. The camera system also rings an alarm in case of any deviations.

According to a report by IANS, the camera may be used at entrances to events, airports, metro stations, manufacturing plants, buildings, hotels, commercial complexes, shopping malls, and gated societies during the Covid-19 spread.

"Using advanced facial detection technique, it detects facial temperature for more accurate measurement and generates an alert when it detects high temperature," Cherukumalli Rao, General Manager (sales), Vehant Technologies, told IANS. 

The report mentions that FebriEye's face mask detection feature uses visible stream from the camera combined with 'AI techniques' to detect and generate an alert for people not wearing face masks. A user-friendly interface allows monitoring and review of alerts generated by the system.

Rao said that this feature not just flags people for not following minimum acceptable social distancing guidelines but also alerts the administrative authorities to take appropriate action.

Responding to a tweet by the company on Saturday, Telangana's Minister for Industry and Information Technology K.T. Rama Rao asked Principal Secretary Jayesh Ranjan to look into the innovation.

Asking the company to send him a presentation, the official said this could be useful once the malls, factories, and offices re-open.
