What You’ll Hear.

The COVID-19 coronavirus and the human suffering it has wrought are rapidly changing the way we live and work. In the near term, staying at home and practicing social distancing are vital to ‘flattening the curve’. However, when we do venture out of our homes in the coming months, it is likely that a vaccine for the coronavirus will still be months or even a year or more away. As societies loosen social distancing practices, there is a real possibility we could experience further outbreaks unless the institutions and businesses we rely on do all they can to prevent the further spread of the disease. In this webinar we will cover how technology - alongside such continued good practices as hand-washing - could play a vital role in helping to isolate cases and support a targeted approach to quarantine. Learn how a layered approach using emerging technologies like 3D lidar, video intelligence, IoT and AI are helping to: - Contain the spread of the virus using elevated body temperature sensing alerts - Prevent the spread of disease through handwashing verification and social distancing compliance through 3D lidar without personally identifiable information (PII) - Report on and comply with policies, using analytics and incident management solutions to provide transparency to employees, customers, and regulators Disclaimer: These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
