Honeywell has launched a new temperature monitoring solution that incorporates advanced, infrared imaging technology and artificial intelligence algorithms to conduct non-invasive, preliminary screening of personnel entering a facility.
Honeywell's ThermoRebellion system uses thermal cameras and AI to detect elevated body temperature and can validate if an individual is wearing proper PPE.
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.
"Protecting worker safety is the top priority for any building operator and today, more than ever, managers are looking for innovative solutions to enhance their health screening processes," said Renaud Mazarguil, president of Honeywell's gas analysis and safety business. "We've developed this breakthrough technology to automate and streamline the monitoring of an individual's temperature and reduce the need for invasive monitoring. Honeywell is committed to developing new solutions to help workers, families and communities stay safe."
The solution incorporates software powered by AI allowing for each individual pixel captured by the camera to be rapidly assessed for elevated temperature. The solution is easy to install and commission, and it is simple to operate with minimal training using an intuitive graphical user interface. The system also automatically logs data to simplify and standardize record-keeping for compliance, reducing the need for potentially error-prone manual tracking processes.
The system integrates with the Honeywell Forge platform and Honeywell's Healthy Building Solutions that provide a holistic view of a building's health based on key factors such as air quality, social distancing, occupant flow, sanitation, wellness density and governance adherence.
