Bosch launches new human skin temperature detection solution

GRASBRUNN, Germany--Bosch has launched a human skin temperature detection solution that features built-in Artificial Intelligence (AI). The intelligent solution assists businesses to react to and predict possible unwanted situations.

Data from the “Human Skin Temperature Detection solution” from Bosch provides actionable insights that can minimize illness spread by accurately identifying people with elevated skin temperature at checkpoints in office buildings, manufacturing plants, and airports.

Highlights of the new solution include:

  • Contactless solution can scan people for elevated skin temperature within a range of 2.5 to 4.5 meters (8 to 14 feet).
  • The camera’s thermal module is highly precise and has a radiometric accuracy of +/- 0.5 °C / 0.9 °F, tested by an independent third-party lab.
  • Facilitates single-person stop-and-stand temperature screening in office buildings, manufacturing plants, and airports.
  • Built-in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and smart profiles filter possible anomalies caused by environmental conditions, like air temperature, and known false triggers to ensure high accuracy.
  • Trusted solution that officially follows Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines and offers General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant self-service mode.

During a crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses need to stay open to serve customers, generate revenue, pay employee salaries, and contribute to the economy while keeping people safe. The new Human Skin Temperature Detection solution from Bosch is a contactless screening tool that can scan employees, customers, visitors, and contractors for elevated skin temperature. By leveraging critical data, business owners and security operators can take the right predictive measures to safeguard people’s health.

The solution also contributes to the overall needed awareness to maintain proper physical distancing in areas where people must pass through a checkpoint, such as in airports, commercial buildings, or manufacturing plants.

The Bosch Human Skin Temperature Detection solution is offered as a kit that contains a DINION IP thermal 9000 RM camera combined with a smart VIDEOJET decoder 7000 that also acts as a direct monitor output, a temperature reference device (blackbody), a special control keyboard, and specific software that helps to detect anomalies in human skin temperature. The solution will quickly detect multiple facial hotspots and indicate if an individual has an elevated skin temperature. The system has an intuitive interface allowing operators to access temperature alarms, temperature histograms, quick snapshot replay, and alarm threshold configurations via a USB keyboard, without the need for an additional computer or software.

Safeguarding people’s health involves processing sensitive data; therefore, the Human Skin Temperature Detection solution from Bosch offers a special GDPR compliant public self-service mode. This self-service mode will cover the person’s face and hide the screen’s absolute temperature data. By default, the decoder will automatically erase stored historical data after four hours to ensure the latest data is used for reference and sensitive data is not unnecessarily kept.

The solution’s built-in AI not only enables the detection of faces of which it measures the hottest spot. It also filters possible false triggers caused by heat sources, like a cup of coffee. The system continuously monitors all temperature data (both historical and current). If there are too many deviations, a new threshold is estimated so that an operator can update system settings accordingly.

Since 2016, Bosch has offered Intelligent Video Analytics, a form of AI, as standard in all video security cameras it brings to the market. This data-driven approach, coupled with its ability to build high-quality hardware platforms, has enabled Bosch to swiftly develop a solution that detects elevated skin temperatures and offers businesses an option to reduce disruption as the coronavirus pandemic persists.
