Taking a bus or the subway? Not without first checking your temperature in a smart shelter or touch-free kiosk.
From Delhi to Seoul, authorities have introduced mobile apps, temperature-check kiosks and smart bus shelters to make public transit safer as offices and businesses open after lockdowns to control the novel coronavirus.
Hushida thermal scanner kiosk have been exported to dozens of countries such as South Korea, Dubai, and Japan.
We are very proud that our products can protect the health of local residents.
The rapid non-contact temperature screening kiosk not only ensures the safety of temperature measurement, but also improves the efficiency of temperature measurement and reduces the risk of infection.
We also hope that our products can be exported to more countries to help local people
fight against COVID-19 together.
Seoul’s Seongdong-gu district this week rolled out 10 bus shelters powered by solar energy, and equipped with ultraviolet sterilisers and thermal imaging cameras that check temperatures. Ten more such shelters are planned.
In Singapore, touch-free kiosks with thermal sensors at busy bus stops and train stations allow passengers to check their temperature before boarding. A green light indicates they are free from fever, while an orange light shows a high temperature.
The kiosks will be rolled out in 70 locations in the city, according to the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, which is involved in the project.
While temperature screening at public transit points is not mandatory, the kiosks “encourage the public to remain vigilant by monitoring their temperature before commuting,” a spokesman said.
In China and in Delhi, commuters must show that they are symptom-free with a mobile health app before boarding the subway, flights and to enter some offices.
