Drones can detect a person with COVID-19 symptoms

Dragon Fly a company specialized in quadcopter drone launched a drone with the collaboration of the University of South Australia and the Science and Technology Group (DST), which is part of Australia’s Defence Department that can detect a person with COVID-19 symptoms.

The Draganfly drones will be fitted with a specialized sensor and computer vision system that can monitor temperature, heart and respiratory rates, as well as to detect people sneezing and coughing in crowds and other places where groups of people may work or congregate.

The drones can monitor people in public crowds, workforces, airlines, cruise ships, convention centres, border crossings or critical infrastructure facilities. The technology can also be used to monitor potential at-risk groups, such as seniors in care facilities.

In a rush to combat the global spread of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) in the U.S., Draganfly will deploy “pandemic drones” to remotely monitor and detect people with infectious and respiratory conditions to help stop the spread of the disease.
