The historically black university, located in Montgomery, Alabama, is about to enter a new school year, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to protect the university’s students, faculty, and staff from the virus as it reopens, ASU has implemented various safety measures. 

Draganfly’s screening technologies are an extra layer of protection that may help identify and mitigate the spread of COVID-19. These technologies the company’s Smart Thermal Temperature Assessment Stations, Vital Signs Assessment Stations, and Social Distancing Awareness technologies.

The technologies can detect elevated body temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, and oxygen saturation, all via a non-invasive camera. Those who demonstrate an elevated temperature can then undergo further screening to confirm a diagnosis of COVID-19.
