To some people, it might appear as if the COVID-19 crisis is over and things will return to normal soon. For others, new technology will ensure that this pandemic remains under control until a proper vaccine has been developed.
It is evident that the COVID-19 pandemic will remain a global concern for some time to come.
Checking for COVID-19 With Smart Helmets
It might not necessarily impact daily lives more than it does today, however. That will only happen if proper measures are put in place to protect the health of everyone. Countries such as China and Italy are experimenting with some interesting concepts. Surveillance helmets have been issued to local police forces to scan people for COVID-19 fever. It may look a bit odd at first, but it is a rather non-invasive solution. These “smart” helmets are equipped with all of the necessary sensors and other hardware to properly record and process the data in real-time.
Initially developed by KC Wearable, they offer thermal imaging to take people’s temperature at a safe distance of up to 2 meters. The helmets also come with an augmented reality display screen, an infrared camera, and a visible light camera. Ultimately, the helmets will also allow law enforcement officers to scan people’s QR code for personal data.
