Devices capable of determining a person’s likelihood of being infected with COVID-19 were recently introduced at Tongji University in Shanghai as part of the university’s epidemic prevention and control efforts.

The devices use an artificial intelligence (AI) system independently developed by Tongji University to monitor the temperature and personal information of faculty members and students.

By standing in view of the device’s camera, people can receive a quick scan without taking off their masks.

The system will give a warning if the person displays signs of fever or cough, or if their information fails to meet Shanghai’s safety standards

According to a research team at the university, the device makes use of technologies such as facial recognition, data processing, and motion recognition.

The device can even identify individuals with abnormal temperatures among crowds, monitoring their movements, taking photos, and giving a warning.

More such devices will be installed at the university’s gates in the future, in an effort to reduce the burden on workers and increase campus safety.
