Face recognition and temperature measurement

1 August 2020 Editor's Choice

Designed to detect users with elevated skin temperature, Suprema’s recently launched Thermal Camera, which is purpose built for FaceStation 2, brings a new level of safety to the company’s face recognition device while not holding up the queue.

The Suprema Thermal Camera is expected to enhance security and safety at sites by combining face recognition and skin temperature measurement. The accuracy and consistency of the temperature measurement of Suprema’s solution is increased by using the face recognition algorithm of the FaceStation 2 to pinpoint the upper area of the face. FaceStation 2 displays the skin temperature and thermal image of a subject’s face on its intuitive GUI, giving both audio and visual alerts when a higher than threshold temperature is detected.

The Thermal Camera and FaceStation 2 can be configured differently for varying needs. It can be set to deny entrance of users with elevated skin temperature while the ‘bypass mode’ will disable the face recognition feature and only admit users based on skin temperature. The system can also be arranged to trigger an alarm and notify admin when the measured temperature is higher than the preset threshold.

Using advanced thermographic technology, the Suprema Thermal Camera quickly and precisely measures temperatures at 19 200 pixels per frame. With an accuracy of 0,5 degrees Celsius, the camera does not require a reference blackbody for temperature measurement, improving ease of use. Temperature data, which can be displayed in both Celsius and Fahrenheit, can also be saved as event logs. The new camera can be connected to FaceStation 2 via a USB cable, enabling easy deployment on new and retrofit installs.

“The new Suprema Thermal Camera demonstrates our market focus. There has been a growing demand for temperature measurement devices to be used at access points and Suprema’s Thermal Camera was designed to meet this need. Our cameras can be conveniently installed on FaceStation 2, enhancing safety as well as security,” said Young S. Moon, CEO of Suprema.
