The real-time data provided by the temperature sensor can support health care workers to effectively screen out persons with abnormal body temperature. Semtech Corporation (NASDAQ: SMTC), a leading supplier of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products and advanced algorithms, announced a few days ago: Bolixin Technology, an innovative manufacturer of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for optical fiber and wireless sensing The company (Polysense Technologies Inc., hereinafter referred to as “Bolixin”) has developed a series of smart body temperature monitoring products based on Semtech LoRa® devices. The solution has recently been shipped to Italy to help respond to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.
Wu Yunqiao, President of Polyxin Technology, said: “The new LoRa-based infrared body temperature detector can provide better health monitoring and services for communities in many cities. Health workers can use it to monitor the body temperature of the population, and when necessary It can provide immediate medical services to those in need at any time.”
Global communities are increasingly using Internet of Things (IoT) technology to help many countries and cities provide residents with better community services. With its high flexibility and wide coverage, IoT solutions support the medical industry to develop applications that optimize the workflow of hospitals, patient care, and public health through reliable and accurate data monitoring.
Brisson has launched two LoRa-based temperature monitoring products. WxS x800-IRTM is a wireless sensor monitor for real-time temperature measurement of the human body. It uses thermal sensing technology and embedded LoRa devices to continuously monitor the human body temperature in real time. The sensor uses a connection based on the LoRaWAN® protocol to automatically upload body temperature monitoring data to the cloud platform application and perform trend analysis. If the monitored data exceeds the normal body temperature value, an alarm message will be sent to the mobile device, so that persons with abnormal body temperature can avoid contact with others and seek medical attention immediately.
“LoRa devices speed up product development and enable the deployment of solutions to quickly meet customer needs. The thermal sensor body temperature monitoring application of Polyson demonstrates that LoRa-based IoT solutions can provide real-time observation data to help the community And health care workers to better respond to the new coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic.” said Marc Pegulu, vice president of the Internet of Things, Semtech Wireless and Sensing Products Division.
This WxS x810-IRTMS is an independent thermal sensor body temperature detection device used in public places. The product can be deployed in public transportation, airports, railway stations, schools, shopping malls, and large building entrances to help public health personnel effectively monitor the body temperature of the crowd and screen out people with abnormal body temperature. The deployment of WxS x810-IRTMS takes less than five minutes to perform body temperature screening and improve the safety of public places.
