    Kochi student develops automatic thermal scanner

    Jun 22, 2020 21:10 IST

    An engineering student in Kochi, Divins Mathew has developed an automatic thermal scanner. ‘AutoTemp’ is capable of recording body temperature through infrared sensors along with taking pictures to help authorities identify a potentially infected person. If the body temperature is higher than normal, a photograph of the person will be clicked and transferred to the computer connected to the device. The box-like device can be placed at entry points and can benefit health workers so they can avoid closely engaging with people.
