Thermal optical cameras at airport

Thiruvananthapuram: The State’s first thermal and optical imaging camera with Artificial Intelligence-powered face detection technology has been temporarily installed at T-2 (terminal-2) of the Thiruvananthapuram international airport to screen the Non-Resident Keralites (NoRKS) arriving from West Asia and other countries for fever.

The camera will be first used for screening the passengers who will arrive by the IX 374 from Doha at 10.45 p.m. on May 10.

A technician of the Amsterdam-based firm that supplied the gadget and a qualified doctor will be behind the camera to monitor the temperature. Four health desks are placed behind the camera for completing other formalities. As per the standard operating procedure, only 20 flyers will be allowed to leave at a time from the airport to the terminal to ensure social distancing. Those showing high temperatures can be scanned at a safe distance using the camera and the potentially sick can be identified easily. After completing the formalities and health screening only will the flyers be allowed to move to the second floor where the immigration wing functions.
