Abstract

At the current time, the world faces a danger pandemic comes from the fast outbreak of Novel Coronavirus that was firstly originated in December 2019, Wuhan, China. The known symptom of this risky virus is fever which can be measured easily by infrared thermometer. Due to close distance nature of temperature measurement by this kind of thermometer, there is a high probability of large exposure to coronavirus. These conditions imposed the utilizing effective gadgets to identify the infectee within the crowd based on fever symptom to face the outbreak of virus in many nations. The online 2D temperature reading can be provided based on the merits of thermal imager. This technology can generate individual thermal image having multiple points within millisecond. Therefore, the target of the current research is to provide a cheap detection system of COVID-19 covering large zone based on the fever symptom within the crowd utilizing IoT technology. The capturing of detected high temperature of the individual is done through thermal module as well as face detection based on optical camera.
