IoT Thermal Camera.
Thermal imaging is a non-invasive and convenient method for facilitating the rapid screening of human skin temperature. It is well suited to picking up common symptoms of illness such as COVID-19, and in turn can be used to help keep public spaces and workplaces safer. In response to the pandemic, the client engaged Boost Design to research and develop a new thermal imaging camera suitable for use in the post-COVID-19 recovery.
- Conducted research into available technologies and limitations
- Invented a new approach to produce a high-accuracy thermal imaging camera at a fraction of the cost of comparable offerings
- Developed a benchtop proof-of-concept of the technology, including electronics, firmware, software, and industrial design, proving feasibility of the low-cost technology
- Developed sales and marketing assets allowing the Client to test the market prior to committing to further development
- Conducted patentability searches and freedom to operate searches, and applied for a provisional patent on the technology
- Designed a prototype of the device suitable for performance testing
- Developed test methodologies and equipment to verify camera performance and accuracy
- Designed and developed all industrial design, electronics, firmware, and software for the production device
- Designed customisable mounting solutions, including desk mounts, floor standing mounts, and wall mounting systems
- Developed an upgraded software package, allowing WiFi connection of the camera to a local network, and a highly-configurable automated alert system that sends notification emails when high temperatures are detected
- Manufactured short-run production devices on behalf of the client
A great example of a product response to the COVID-19 pandemic. SureVis provides a well designed solution at a cost that is achievable to SMEs. The user experience of the device is simple and has been thoughtfully designed. Materials, design selection. workflow and aesthetics are of high quality.”
