CompuLynx, a Kenyan-based software development company has launched an AI based Face Recognition and Temperature Monitoring solution.

The innovation forms part of its touchless biometric solutions. The launch took place at the CompuLynx Head Office in Nairobi, Kenya.

This new body temperature detection system dubbed “e-Face” will help prevent a direct contact transmission of the virus whether in public or at the workplace.

Based on its AI-enabled face recognition technology, the touchless thermometer is able to detect body temperature without any physical contact.

It measures body temperature at a medical accuracy level of ±0.3℃. It also triggers an alarm automatically when the temperature is above the safety range and captures the head image of the individual as evidence.

The technology keeps records of past and present employees visitors and also captures over 100,000 faces.

With e-face, workers and health workers can now be screened before passing through hospitals, shopping malls, educational institutions and other public places.

Speaking during the product launch, Richard Katiwa, Director of IT Infrastructure Services at CompuLynx said that, “ The new temperature pass management and face recognition will enable ease of identification, avoids physical contact, and eliminate potential hotspots to spread the disease especially through existing devices like shared biometric scanners for employee / visitor identification, time and attendance, etc.”

Mr Sailesh Saivani, Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of CompuLynx also expressed excitement over the “strong customer interest” currently being given to the e-Face technology.

“Businesses are very keen to implement this innovative technology to drive commercialization of AI based Face Recognition & Temperature Monitoring Machine in the East African Market”, he added.
