The Indian Railways is taking various precautionary measures for the safety of passengers amid the coronavirus outbreak. Passengers are all praises for these innovative steps being taken by the national transporter.
Here are some of the new safety measures by Indian Railways:
Automated thermal scanners
To make the process of screening seamless, the bullet thermal image screening cameras have been installed at various railway stations such as Secunderabad, Hyderabad and Asansol.Book Trains
When a passenger enters the camera’s focus range, it begins to screen the body temperature of the passenger. The temperature is shown on the LED screen as a text message followed by an alert audio alarm.
Today, on 4.6.2020, Human Body Temperature Screening System through thermal camera has been installed and commissioned at Main Entrance of Asansol Station. It will be helpful in quick scanning of passenger’s temperature without stopping them & also detecting person with no mask. pic.twitter.com/zBnOJDr6mZ
