While the coronavirus pandemic is spreading fast in some countries, it also seems to be slowing down in some regions. China, for example, recently announced that it will lift lockdown imposed on Hubei and that no domestic cases were reported after a long time. Additionally, after two months of total lockdown, the country has opened up a couple of public places that are attracting crowds. However, to stay safe and detect people infected with the Covid-19 virus, China is equipping its forces with AI-powered smart glasses.
AI-powered smart glasses that can detect fever
While it might sound like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, it is indeed a reality. Security guards at the recently reopened Hongyuan Park wetland preserve are wearing new AI-enabled smart glasses that feature a thermal imaging camera to measure someone’s temperature from up to 1 meter away, reports South China Morning Post. These smart glasses are said to be capable of checking the temperature of “several hundred people within two minutes” to reduce queues at the park’s entrance.
