Can temperature scanning slow COVID-19 spread? Airports are the testing ground for new tech

A camera in the security lines at Dallas Love Field is scanning every passerby for elevated temperatures, in a test by the airport and Southwest Airlines to find out if it can detect sick people before they board flights.

In the back hallways, employees are getting temperature checks at kiosks before they start work each day, trying to keep sick employees out of the airport, too.

As airlines, companies and governments scramble to reopen a battered economy facing the eighth month of a worldwide pandemic, airports are now the frontline for evolving thermal imaging technologies designed to pick out infected travelers before they can spread COVID-19 further.

Temperature scanning device makers such as Dallas-based Wello Inc. and Beaumont’s Infared Cameras Inc. have suddenly been inundated with requests for their technology. Even small restaurants, hotels and schools are asking about it.

“It’s not just convention centers and airlines,” said Gary Strahan,

Anyline Launches Contactless Smartphone ID Scanning for Hospitality Industry

VIENNA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct 1, 2020–

​Hotels, pubs, and restaurants across Australia are pulling back punters, but losing time to typing. Track and trace regulations require establishments to register information on each guest, causing delays for many patrons, while others are deliberately falsifying their data.

Tackling these issues, Austrian technology firm Anyline has launched software to scan Australian driving licenses and passports on any smartphone. This technology give hospitality personnel a quick and contactless way to gather the data needed from each guest on entry. In contrast to QR code systems, guests do not need to type in their information themselves, meaning incorrect data cannot be entered.

Amazon One verifies consumers and office workers by scanning the palm of their hand

Amazon is rolling out a new contactless technology that enables consumers to make payments and carry out other in-store transactions using the palm of their hand. The internet giant has big plans for this technology, including offering it to third parties.

Amazon One, as the feature is called, fits into the company’s broader push into the brick-and-mortar realm, which kicked off in 2016 with the launch of Amazon Go retail stores. Equipped with computer vision, sensor fusion, and deep learning, Amazon’s cashierless stores are designed to be friction-free, enabling shoppers to walk in and out without waiting in line.

Starting in two Amazon Go stores in Seattle from today, shoppers will be able to register the palm of their hand as a unique identifier and then insert their credit card into the Amazon One device located at the entrance to associate their payment credentials with their hand. They will then
