JD.com Launches Smart Body Temperature Screening System


by Yuchuan Wang

JD.com, China’s largest retailer, has launched a smart body temperature screening system to help increase public transport efficiency during the large inflow of people returning to work in public places after working remotely due to the COVID-19 breakout. Providing efficiency at scale, the system has been rolled out in 10 cities across China to date, including Beijing and Tianjin.

The system employs technology to quickly screen people with abnormal body temperatures in densely populated places, such as airports, train stations, office buildings, parks and shopping malls, providing epidemic prevention solutions at a critical time.

The smart body temperature screening system is based on JD Cloud & AI’s technology, equipped with an infrared sensor which will detect the body temperature of a moving group of people in real-time. Its measurement range is 30 °C to 45 °C, with an accuracy within ±0.3 ℃. When high body temperature is detected, an alarm warning will be provided.

Compared with traditional manual temperature checks, the system enables a highly efficient working procedure and solves the problem of frustrating congestion while queuing. It also quickly locates people who have a fever to enable further assessments in an effort to contain contagion.

The system also provides daily analytics and real-time statistics of the people passing through checks to help generate further useful insight leading to prevention such as potential infected people.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in China, JD Cloud & AI has launched a series of technology products and services for the public and individuals to use including an emergency resources information platform, a smart epidemic assistant, a cloud video conference service, and online classroom services to support access to information and education during this time.
