We have designed a passive device that can identify and take the temperature of people's foreheads while they walk through a doorway. Given the current pandemic that we have been facing, we wanted to create a low-cost solution to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. The goal of our project is to collect enough data from our device to help characterize buildings or any place with large gatherings of people. This would allow epidemiologists to quickly identify local outbreaks or high-risk areas and assist in contact tracing. At the heart of our project is a microprocessor running Linux. Combining our microprocessor with an image sensor and medical-grade infrared thermometer, equipped with a five-degree field of view lens, allows us to detect and take temperature readings of a person's forehead.
