In order to prevent passengers from Ebola from sneaking into the airports, a Valencian company has developed a technology that, through thermal cameras, measures body temperature in order to detect the possible fever that reveals Ebola infection. However, this would only be one of many applications of this technology. For example: detection of forest fires, security work such as land and maritime perimeter surveillance of large military installations or surveillance of pyrotechnic shows.
In Guinea Conacry, epicenter of the Ebola crisis, thermal cameras have already been installed that measure the body temperature of travelers. Above 38 degrees, the alert is activated.
