Railways have decided to install COVID surveillance cameras based on Artificial Intelligence at all stations. With the help of these cameras, Railways will measure the temperature of the person’s body.
During a fierce battle with Corona, the Indian Railways are continually making decisions in the interest of passengers. Now, the railways have decided that it will install Artificial Intelligence-based ‘COVID surveillance’ cameras at the stations which will measure the body temperature of every person entering the stations.
With the help of scanned photos, it will also find whether the passenger has worn the mask or not. With this, RailTel has issued a tender to purchase 800 cameras.
Price of COVID Surveillance Cameras is Four Lakhs
The price of these cameras is said to be more than four lakhs. These cameras have a feature that will tell the exact body temperature only after seeing the photos of the passengers coming to the station. In this regard, railway officials have said that two types of cameras are currently being purchased. These will prove to be very useful.
The New Technique Will Help Identify COVID-19 Patients Quicker
The Mumbai Railway Zone has already purchased such cameras, and tenders are being issued to buy cameras from different zones. Due to Corona, there was a complete lockdown from 25 March to 31 May. Relief started in June, and currently, Railways is also running some special trains for people to reach their homes. In such a situation, there is a need for a thermal camera, with the help of which people in public places can be identified more easily by this technique of body temperature.
The Railway is Going to Install Cameras in Railway Zones
According to the railway officials, instructions have been given to install such cameras in the railway zones. Tenders are being issued to buy cameras for different zones. To install these cameras, RailTel has also issued a tender to purchase 800 cameras.
Recently, Indian Railways have invented the automated Robot Captain Arjun for the contactless thermal scanning of the passengers to measure their body temperatures. Along with this, automated mask and sanitizer dispensary machine has also been installed at many railway stations for the passengers of Special trains.
Railway board chairman Mr V.K. Yadav recently said that railways would provide his all resources for the safety and security of their passengers.
