Technology company Datametrex AI (DM) has begun deploying its MiCovid Cam Temperature Scanners to COVID-19 testing customers in the market.

The company’s new product is an AI-based non-contact thermal detector, which comes with facial recognition capabilities. The device is able to identify and triage anyone with an elevated temperature, which is a symptom of COVID-19 infection.

Datametrex’s product uses artificial intelligence (AI) chipset technology, allowing it to provide immediate body temperature detection. It can do so quickly, accurately, within a long sensor range, and non-invasively, in keeping with social distancing protocols.

The MiCovid Cam is fully integrated into Web Services API suite, which allows third-party and independent software developers to introduce body temperature data into their software solutions.

The company’s choice to deploy the device now is timely, as the global number of COVID-19 infections and deaths reaches new and terrifying heights. While some cities and nations are still battling through their first wave of the pandemic, numerous hotspots around the world are now experiencing secondary bouts of COVID-19 cases. 

Datametrex AI’s CEO, Marshall Gunter, commented on the ongoing outbreaks of the pandemic which have necessitated such a solution. 

“As we potentially enter into a second wave of the COVID-19, there is a need to support the reopening of economies, and having another tool to support this with MiCovid Cam, which is a solution capable of fast-tracking the safe return of customers to office buildings, restaurants, retail outlets, coffee shops, government offices, and educational institutions,” he said.

Datametrex AI (DM) is down 4.35 per cent and is trading at C$0.11 per share at 2:13pm EDT.
