Health & Safety Human Resources Honeywell Screenings Temperature ThermoRebellion

AI-driven thermal imager conducts non-invasive screenings

Honeywell has announced a temperature monitoring solution that incorporates advanced, infrared imaging technology and artificial intelligence algorithms to conduct non-invasive, preliminary screening of personnel entering a facility.

The Honeywell ThermoRebellion temperature monitoring solution can be rapidly deployed at the entryway of a factory, airport, distribution centre, stadium or other commercial buildings to quickly and efficiently identify whether personnel exhibit an elevated facial temperature.

As individuals pass in front of a high-resolution, thermal imaging camera, their skin temperature is automatically detected within two seconds and displayed on an accompanying monitor.

This can alert a person with an elevated temperature to seek additional screening. In addition, operators gain reliable, real-time information about personnel entering their facilities enabling them to take measures to keep their premises safe and secure.

The Honeywell ThermoRebellion system can also identify if individuals are wearing the required personal protective equipment needed for entering the building.

Honeywell is piloting its new temperature monitoring solution at two of its U.S. production facilities.
