Internet of Things Inc’s (CVE:ITT) (OTCMKTS:INOTF) mass fever detection system was featured in an article on Fox.com Thursday night, the company announced.

The story, titled, "As America reopens, fever-screening technology touted as promising tool,” discusses how businesses are turning to fever-screening technology like ThermalPass to spot possible carriers of the coronavirus at the door as they begin welcoming back customers.

The device instantly screens for higher-than-normal body temperatures with an accuracy of 0.36 degrees Fahrenheit, thus identifying possible carriers of the coronavirus. If ThermalPass machines are stationed at the entrances of high-traffic public locations, they can potentially help reduce the risk of further spread.

Unlike traditional thermal cameras, ThermalPass relies on medical grade sensors to detect an object's infrared energy from a distance. The AI system allows for rapid scanning of individuals as they pass through the device — without having to slow down — and quietly notify security personnel of anyone with a higher-than-normal temperature.

"We are pleased to see ITT Inc and ThermalPass profiled in a news outlet as widely viewed as Fox.com," CEO Michael Lende said in a statement. "We are planning to start 'In-field' testing of the ThermalPass later in the month in the U.S. and Canada and are receiving calls from hospitals, malls, outdoor concert venues, retail stores, grocery chains and governments to test the product."

ThermalPass was developed jointly by ITT subsidiary AI Labs Inc and Commersive Solutions Corp. Last week, ITT announced that it received permission from Health Canada to onduct business with ThermalPass pending clearance of a Medical Device Establishment License (MDEL).
