In this news, we discuss the Nokia announces zero-touch thermal detection solution to fight COVID-19.
Nokia on Thursday announced an automated, non-contact thermal sensing solution designed to monitor temperatures and mask usage in large facilities with thousands of people.
Leveraging advanced analytics and machine learning, Nokia’s automated analytics solution for access control fully automates the process of identifying people with high temperatures and monitors mask compliance in very large facilities with multiple accesses while reducing the cost of detection and ensuring business continuity and supply chain resilience. during the pandemic.
Using a thermal imager on site, Nokia’s automated analysis solution captures video footage and takes individual temperature readings for each person entering the screening site. In the next step, the analysis engine processes the video clip to determine if people require additional screening or are not meeting mask wearing standards.
If the solution detects an irregularity, a centralized company-wide view is presented and a real-time alert is automatically sent to field staff to initiate follow-up and follow-up or post-detection actions. The entire process is automated and takes place in near real time.
Additionally, Nokia can leverage its Digital Automation Cloud private wireless network solution to provide seamless outdoor connectivity for these operations. Nokia has deployed the solution on several sites, including at its Chennai plant to monitor employee safety and plans to roll it out for corporate clients in several industry segments.
“Nokia’s automated analytics solution has enabled us to achieve regulatory compliance in an automated, 24-hour, seamless, real-time fashion. This solution has allowed us to increase employee availability by reducing waiting time in queues and eliminating the need to assign additional staff to perform manual checks, ”said Sudarshan Pitty, Head of the Nokia Chennai factory.
More importantly, once the pandemic has subsided, the solution can be reused to support other use cases such as employee protection, site visitors and facilities, including predictive machine monitoring and maintenance, security threats and anomaly detection, and customized industry-specific analyzes.
