2. GateDoc: Wireless Bluetooth body temperature scanner
GateDoc is touting its touchless thermometers to address the risks of COVID-19 at CES 2021, Jan. 11-14.
GateDoc is designed for use by the general public to reduce waiting lines into public facilities such as the gym, supermarket or restaurant. It uses touchless sensors to perform a body temperature scan within half a second with accuracy up to 0.2 degrees Fahrenheit. To use the device, visitors place their heads 1–4 in. in front of GateDoc. The forehead temperature measurement scanning method illuminates a green or red light and sound to determine if someone can enter a building.
The device is app-connected, which means managers and owners of facilities can receive alerts when someone with a fever is detected at the entrance.
