BANGKOK and HAMBURG, Germany, Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

The spread of coronavirus shows that in today's world of fast global travel, 
outbreaks of infectious diseases can cross national borders within the shortest 
time. DERMALOG has developed the first biometric border control system with 
integrated fever detection, identifying potentially infected travelers right at 
border entrance to contain epidemics. The latest innovation of the German 
company has now been presented to the public for the first time in Thailand.

As the first country in the world, Thailand has introduced a pilot for a new 
fever detection system, fully integrated into its biometric border control. The 
new solution was demonstrated to the press by the Thai Immigration Bureau 
deputy commissioner, Pol Maj-Gen Surapong Chaichan at Don Mueang International 
Airport in Bangkok on February 12.

special fever camera, which is fully integrated into the Thai entry-exit 
system. It automatically measures the exact temperature of the traveler while 
standing in front of the border counter. The high fever-detection accuracy at a 
distance of up to 1.5 m, is one of the system's outstanding features. 

Border counters are the perfect spot for such fever checks, as travelers stop 
here one by one for a moment. DERMALOG's solution provides more accurate and 
precise results than camera systems that capture several travelers 
simultaneously. This makes the Thai borders more secure, also against the
