Smart turnstiles bar access to public places for the COVID-19 afflicted

20 Oct '21
A St. Petersburg company called O.Vision has developed its own method of inhibiting COVID-19 pandemic escalation: turnstiles that can recognize faces and measure body temperature.

The O.Gate has been showcased as a new contactless biometric device for access control. It can be installed on any turnstile and is reported to be able to recognize the face of a person within 0.2 sec; the person doesnt even have to stop or slow down to be recognized at all.

While the recognition system does its part of the job, a special sensor instantaneously measures the temperature of the persons body. If its above a given threshold (e.g., 37.5C), the system immediately sends out a signal that automatically shuts the turnstile, and also sends a report to the administrator web terminal. If the temperature is within norm, the person can enter without any card, key or ID, and the turnstile logs the time of his entry.
