For fast and accurate determination of human body temperature to prevent the spread of infectious viruses, Land Instruments International has released a high-resolution fixed thermal imaging camera. It performs nonintrusive screening of a large number of people and can discern small differences in body temperature. The vIRalert uses a certified temperature calibration source and an in-scene calibration technique to take thermographic images of body temperatures at a distance and compares the images with a blackbody calibration source at 9 Hz. If elevated temperatures are detected, an alarm alerts a staff member who can decide on further action. The system is used in airports to detect temperature radiance differences caused by fevers.
