Vodafone UK readies IoT heat detection camera for Covid-19 screening

Vodafone UK has teamed up with UK digital surveillance company Digital Barriers on a heat detection camera to help organisations get back to work safely during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The thermal imaging device, powered by Vodafone’s IoT connectivity tech, will allow companies to screen the temperature of staff and other visitors as they enter buildings and is capable of checking the temperature of 100 people per minute and eight individuals simultaneously, the companies said.

Digital Barriers has provided the underlying software and hardware. The UK-headquartered company’s technology is used in over 60 countries across defence and national security, law enforcement, border security, first responders, critical national infrastructure, transportation agencies, automotive and mobility and private security.

Covid-19 apps around the world

Millions of people in the UK are to be asked to use a phone app to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

The Government is “optimistic” people will download the app to allow better contact tracing – a key factor in beating Covid-19 and helping the country out of lockdown.

Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick said he thought the “vast majority” of people would download the app and “play their part” – but insisted it was just one element of the plan to stop the spread.

Covid-19: How technology can revolutionise your at-home workout

The coronavirus pandemic has thrown the world into chaos, forcing millions upon millions of people to self-isolate at home. 

Maintaining the health and wellbeing of both ourselves and our loved ones has become more imperative than ever – not only to combat the threat of the virus itself but to ensure we stay happy and healthy at home. 

Keeping fit and exercising is one of the best ways to do exactly that, to ensure we stay proactive and utilise the time we have at home to the best of our ability. But why stop there? 

Thanks to the increasingly technological world we live in, numerous exercise-based advances over the years have made at-home workouts much easier, more refined and more effective than ever before. Join us as we take you through how. 

Interview: Crowdstrike’s Zeki Turedi on Covid-19’s long-term impact

At the time of writing, the majority of the world’s governments have effected stay-at-home measures, mass confinements which would be unnavigable for businesses without cloud software and infrastructure. If we didn’t appreciate it before, the sheer power, necessity, even, of cloud computing has been keenly felt in recent weeks. 

Cloud: a virtual helping hand to support remote working

For years, proponents have urged businesses to better enable employees to work from home, citing benefits like increased productivity, less commute time, better work-life balance and enhanced preparedness for business continuity, should a localised disaster strike, such as a tornado, hurricane, earthquake or flood.

Overnight, the COVID-19 global pandemic made the final argument for work-from-home a reality for millions of workers – ready or not. Many global enterprises must suddenly support more and more people working remotely, whether they are equipped to deliver and support workloads at scale or not. This has sent businesses scrambling to quickly embellish digital channels and platforms, increase bandwidth, add virtual private networks (VPNs), provision more laptops, and offer thin-client applications to their employees and customers to improve operational collaboration and enforce social distancing.
