Athena’s Elevated Temperature Detection System
Athena’s Elevated Temperature Detection System to help detect febrile individuals, provides fast, accurate, and safe screening of over 2,000 people per hour (each person must be scanned next to the HSRP device in a single file line six feet apart, which follows the FDA guidelines for screening the public). The system is non-invasive and non-contact; it works by detecting an individual’s face, ignoring hot spots like hot lights above and other hot objects on the person such as a cell phone or coffee. The individual looks at the camera, and the system detects the hottest point on the face near the eyes, with over 1,000 temperature readings on the face. The technology then focuses on the hottest point on the face: the inner canthus, the area near the eyes that most closely correlates with basal body temperature (when not experiencing a fever), so the subject needs to remove glasses and look at the camera. Athena is best utilized as the first of a two checkpoint system, where an elevated temperature that could be a fever is then confirmed by a second FDA approved medical thermometer.
Please Note: The system can only detect elevated temperature and does not diagnose any virus or disease.
