Mantra Softech, one of India’s leading biometric and RFID manufacturing company recently launched Mirada Rapid, a facial recognition-based thermal scanner to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The thermal scanner has been designed with advanced Blackbody technology for the purpose of body temperature screening and effective detection of potential COVID-19 infected persons in public spaces.
In public areas such as airports and railway stations, the Mirada rapid aids in the quick screening of a multitude and eliminates any unnecessary delay thereby fostering social distancing in hotspots such as check-in points, baggage counters, etc. The AI-based thermal scanner recognizes human bodies and instantly detects body temperature by accurately locating the forehead area. It is capable of detecting the body temperature of an individual through the captured image even if the person is wearing a mask.
“Our facial recognition based thermal scanners can help contain pathogen transmission at public spaces by accurately identifying Coronavirus suspects through temperature.” – said Mr. Hiren Bhandari, Director of Mantra Softech.

The Mirada Rapid helps authorities efficiently reduce the transmission of pathogens in the premises by generating an alarm signal as soon as it detects an individual whose body temperature exceeds the predetermined limit. These body temperature measurement scanners are easy to install and provide automatic on-screen temperature measurements instantly, it has a temperature accuracy of ±0.1 0C with high trouped of 6-7 person per second, also it can easily measure the temperature of the individual from a 4-meter distance, additionally, it can detect face and forehead with 99% accuracy.
“With the COVID-19 virus proliferating at an alarming rate, several institutions are eager to deploy our thermal scanners at the earliest to ensure safety,“ added Mr.Bhandari. The company is also proactively developing contactless biometric solutions for preventing the spread of the virus.
