AAEON Can Help! AAEON Donates Fever Detection System to Eden Social Welfare Foundation2020-08-07
AAEON, a leader in IoT and AI Edge solutions, has donated an OMNI-2251-SKU panel PC with AI powered fever and mask detection software to assist in monitoring residents at the Ai-De Disability Rehab Center of the Eden Social Welfare Foundation in Tamsui District, New Taipei City.
As the world continues to combat the spread of COVID-19, many nations are turning their attention towards prevention methods in care homes and centers. Because of the high risk of residents who require the services of these institutions, it is vitally important to stop the spread of the pandemic at the first sign of infection. To help with this endeavor, AAEON, a leader in IoT and AI Edge solutions, has donated an OMNI-2251-SKU panel PC with AI powered fever and mask detection software to assist in monitoring residents at the Ai-De Disability Rehab Center of the Eden Social Welfare Foundation in Tamsui District, New Taipei City.
The donation ceremony was held on July 24th at the Ai-De Disability Rehab Center in Tamsui. In attendance were Cheng Liang, President of the Eden Social Welfare Foundation; Steve Hsu, Senior Consultant of AAEON; Jeffrey Chuang, Director of AAEON’s IoT Product Division, and Jianlun Yeh, Commissioner of the Division of Welfare Services for the Disabled, Social Welfare Department of New Taipei City Government. The Ai-De Disability Rehab Center is a 24-hour residential care institution for the physically and mentally handicapped, currently serving 108 residents. The thermal imaging system has been installed where residents, staff, and visitors must pass through for monitoring. If the system detects someone with a fever, it will let out a beeping sound to alert staff, to help prevent the possible spread of disease.
The thermal imaging system donate by AAEON utilizes a thermal imaging camera connect to AAEON’s OMNI-2215-SKU modular panel PC. AI software trained using Microsoft Azure Cloud Cognitive Service can not only detect individual people’s temperatures, but also if visitors and staff are wearing masks, and issue warnings if they are not. The OMNI-2215-SKU is a 21” touch screen panel PC powered by the 6th Generation Intel Core i5 processor (formerly Sky Lake), and equipped with a flexible I/O loadout to support accessories needed to help power various applications.
“With the nature of the current pandemic, and even with Taiwan’s success in dealing with it, social welfare services need to adapt to new ways of preventing the spread of disease,” said Cheng Liang, President of the Eden Social Welfare Foundation. “Eden Social Welfare Foundation is dedicated to providing social services and preventing the spread of this pandemic in our community, and thanks to the technology donated by AAEON, our workers have a great load lifted off of their shoulders in this challenging time and can provide even better quality of service.”
“AAEON is dedicated to providing industry leading solutions to improving the lives of those around us, and have already seen several of our products deployed in various roles to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic,” Jeffrey Chuang, Director of AAEON IoT Products Division. “The AAEON team is proud to have this opportunity to give back to our community and ensure the health and wellbeing of those around us and help with the monumental efforts social welfare workers undertake every day.”
