BANGKOK and HAMBURG, Germany, Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

The spread of coronavirus shows that in today's world of fast global travel,

outbreaks of infectious diseases can cross national borders within the shortest

time. DERMALOG has developed the first biometric border control system with

integrated fever detection, identifying potentially infected travelers right at

border entrance to contain epidemics. The latest innovation of the German

company has now been presented to the public for the first time in Thailand.

fever detection system, fully integrated into its biometric border control. The

new solution was demonstrated to the press by the Thai Immigration Bureau

standing in front of the border counter. The high fever-detection accuracy at a

distance of up to 1.5 m, is one of the system's outstanding features.

Border counters are the perfect spot for such fever checks, as travelers stop

here one by one for a moment. DERMALOG's solution provides more accurate and

precise results than camera systems that capture several travelers

simultaneously. This makes the Thai borders more secure, also against the
