Engineers at an airport are testing a “smart helmet” that will allow people to scan passengers and check if they could be carrying coronavirus.
The scanner would allow a worker to move around the airport and scan anyone in its radius with infrared.
If they showed up as being hot, they could have a fever and may be carrying coronavirus. In that case they could presumably be removed from the plane.
Security officers would be able to scan people as they waited at the airport and remove anyone that would be unsafe for travelling.
The kit is being tested at Rome’s Fiumicino airport as part of plans to ensure passengers’ safety from coronavirus when flights resume.
Using such technology is also intended to make passengers feel safe about returning to flights once lockdowns are lifted.
