Intel Thermal Detection

Detect Heightened Temperatures for Customer and Employee Protection 

Standoff Scanner for Elevated Temperature Detection

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.

  • Grounded in science for maximum accuracy
  • Nearly autonomous screening process
  • Quickly reads subject's temperature within 2-4 seconds
  • OpenAPI for ease of integration into access control, monitoring and other systems
  • Adjustable to a wide range of subject's heights (children through adults 44-74")
  • Detects obstructions such glasses and prompts subject for removal
  • Accurately reads temperatures with presence of hats and masks
  • Clearly indicates pass or requires additional attention
  • Operates with proper standoff (6 feet) from subject and operator
  • Powered by Intel® Core™ Processors and Intel® RealSense™ cameras, using the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit
  • Scalable to the cloud
  • Supports multiple business and work environments
  • Default settings to ensure no PII and HIPAA data stored in systems
