Internet of Things Inc (CVE:ITT) (OTCMKTS:INOTF) announced Thursday that its fever detection system ThermalPass was featured on Reuters TV.
The Toronto-based company’s technology was highlighted as one of the leading thermal body temperature scanners that will help economies around the world to manage the spread of coronavirus.
ThermalPass is a medical-grade touchless sensor body temperature device that scans the body 20-times per second looking for a temperature threshold level typically above 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
The story, titled “Demand for thermal devices skyrockets in coronavirus times,” was featured on Reuters, which is seen by over 1 billion viewers a day with more than 33 million unique monthly visitors, according to Internet of Things.
"ThermalPass is an innovation inspired out of necessity to help get this crippled economy back to normal, to get people out of their houses, to get people in malls, to get people back in the office in a post-COVID world," said Michael Lende, CEO of Internet of Things.
"Unlike camera solutions, our touchless medical-grade sensor-based ThermalPass does not breech privacy nor social distancing, as it does not require human intervention, and is more accurate with 400 temperature readings per second. People do not have to slow down as they go through ThermalPass."
According to research firm Markets and Markets, the global thermal imaging sector is forecasted to reach US$4.6 billion by 2025, up from $3.4 billion in 2020.
ThermalPass is a wholly owned subsidiary of Internet of Things.
