Real-time data from the temperature sensors enables healthcare workers to efficiently screen individuals with a high temperature. The solution has recently shipped to Italy to help with its Coronavirus (COVID-19) response efforts.
Semtech supplies analogue and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, and Polysense develops Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for fibre and wireless sensing.
Alex Wu, president of Polysense, said: “With the new infrared LoRa-based temperature sensors, cities are able to provide better health monitoring and services to communities. Health officials will be able to monitor people’s temperature and if needed, escalate to provide immediate healthcare to individuals who are in need.”
