Spanish airports operator Aena installed passenger temperature control systems using thermographic cameras in thirteen of its airports, including the busiest ones both in air and passenger traffic.
Indra has been awarded the contract of one of the two orders in a public tender. Indra’s cameras have been installed in the following airports: Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas, Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga-Costa del Sol, Alicante-Elche, Ibiza, Gran Canaria, Tenerife Sur, Valencia, César Manrique-Lanzarote, Seville, Fuerteventura and Menorca.
The system comprises fixed cameras in the arrival halls and mobile backup cameras, which will enable random checks to be performed anywhere in the terminals
The technology is designed to automatically detect the passenger without requiring them to stop or stand at a specific distance. It can recognize a person’s face and spot the areas covered by face masks, caps or other items to select the right place for an accurate temperature measurement.
This technology for temperature control, identifying and warning of disease symptoms identification and alert is part of Indra’s Mova Protect solutions line and is integrated in a set of systems for the management and control of people and passenger mobility in different means of transport.
Aena is working closely with the Spanish Foreign Health Authority in these monitoring and control tasks by providing the technological means necessary for the installation and use of the thermographic cameras.
