By equipping vehicles with thermal sensors in the passenger cabins, the data could determine if there is an infection in the population.
Fever is a possible indication of a coronavirus infection. What is proposed is a thermal imaging for detecting elevated body temperatures. This type of thermal imaging already exists. What is proposed is for it to be used in vehicles, especially school buses and public buses as well. This can only an early warning detection system for potential risk of virus infections.
Who will take these actions?
The goal is to develop this and have them installed.
What are the projected costs?
The costs are not known at this time.
This will likely take several years in order to have the system available across multiple communities.
