Portsmouth: Thermal Scanner To Screen Passengers For Covid-19
Portsmouth International Port has become the first UK port to install a thermal scanner to allow ferry and cruise operators to screen their passengers for Covid-19 symptoms.
The temperature screening technology involves using a camera detection system to monitor the temperature of passengers.
In the beginning it will be trialled as an option for foot passengers joining ships to help support infection control onboard. If successful, the technology could then be used elsewhere in the port.
