Given its extensive spread and threat to the economy, COVID-19 calls for new strategies to effectively fight it. As the world slowly accepts the fact that people need to learn to live with Coronavirus, more and more people are now stepping out for their personal and professional needs. This poses a great challenge to governments and enforcement agencies in effectively monitoring and controlling the situation. As per the Ministry of Home Affairs guidelines under the Disaster Management Act, 2005, thermal screening is mandatory at entry and exit of establishments. But, does the existing people screening mechanisms enable enforcement agencies to efficiently tackle the situation.
Agencies and establishments need to re-evaluate the existing screening methodologies and their effectiveness considering the large mass of people expected in Public places like Malls, Railway Stations, Airports, Large Organisations, etc. The traditional methods of screening are mostly man-managed and have their own limitations. The law enforcement agencies have to adopt more reliable and faster solutions to manage this situation. Mistral has always been a trustworthy partner offering cutting-edge solutions to Homeland security agencies for over two decades.
Mistral‘s Automated Thermal Screening (ATS) System is an Artificial Intelligence enabled mass people screening solution for establishments where a high footfall is expected, viz. Malls, Railway Stations, Bus Stations, Airports, Public/private Organisations, etc. The ATS System offers various benefits over traditional thermal systems. The automated system effectively reduces manpower requirement and close contact among people. The ATS System offers faster people detection and temperature measurement and generates real-time, accurate data for active monitoring and quick decision making. Automated Thermal Screening System can perform simultaneous temperature screening of multiple people with an accuracy of ±0.5℃.
The system consists of a Wall-mounted Thermographic Bullet Camera, a bi-spectrum Image fusion Camera with AI-based human body detection and can screen multiple targets at the same time and an 8-Channel NVR with PoE Switch. The video feed from the cameras will be recorded in an 8-Channel Network Video Recorder installed with the Centralized Management software for the CCTV. In addition, customers can opt for a Black Body Calibrator for higher accuracy. This is a calibration device that can set the temperature value and is a standard temperature source. The thermal camera is calibrated based on the temperature of the black body, thereby improving the accuracy of the Temperature Screening System.
