TEMPERATURE TO SLOW
THE SPREAD OF COVID
HOW IS YOUR TECHNOLOGY HELPING STOP THE
SPREAD OF COVID-19?
EAIGLE’s core expertise is crowd monitoring and
what really differentiates us is the capability of monitoring large crowds at a high degree of accuracy. Our
solution is a computer vision and AI-powered software
that is camera brand agnostic. It connects to 3rd party
security and thermal cameras or leverages an existing camera network to monitor large crowds without
any interruption in the crowd’s traffic flow. When the
novel coronavirus began to spread in North America,
EAIGLE introduced a new AI solution built upon its
existing crowd monitoring AI platform that
helps organizations prevent COVID-19
outbreaks in their facilities. Once
someone is detected to have an
elevated body temperature, an
alarm is issued in real-time, a
notification also is sent out to
security personnel for further
action. This feature can also be
applied for social distancing and
mask compliance scenarios.
We help all kinds of industries; from government and
public admin to commercial
retail and real estate,
and warehouses to healthcare and pharmaceuticals,
our solution is applicable to any operation to optimize their COVID-19 prevention and safe back-towork strategy.
WHY SHOULD OTHER ENTREPRENEURS CONSIDER USING TECH FOR GOOD, ESPECIALLY NOW?
Innovation is crucial during times of need, and
right now is no exception. In fact, now more than ever
in our modern history, entrepreneurs and inventors
are relied upon to help guide the world through this
global health crisis. If there are potential ideas, solutions, and technologies that can go towards helping
society reopen safely, entrepreneurs should jump to
seize every single opportunity to apply them.
WHERE DO YOU PLAN TO TAKE EAIGLE IN THE
NEXT 5-10 YEARS?
EAIGLE technology was built to be expandable
to a range of industries and businesses and scalable
to a variety of vision-based solutions. Our progress
during COVID-19 of introducing a new AI solution
that is applicable to all verticals and industries, is a
testament to this. We have a solid product development roadmap with a market expansion plan for the
next 5 years and are focusing on following our short
and long-term plans to become the world’s frontier
of occupancy data analytics.
