Digital signage, kiosks take COVID-19 head on

The workplace revolution has begun. Millions of people worldwide have permanently left the traditional workplace, and those who return are following new procedures such as having their temperature checked and their identity verified.

Welcome to the post-COVID-19 workplace. The coronavirus will eventually be controlled, but by the time this happens, employers will have new regimens in place for managing their workforces. There will be hundreds if not thousands of worker monitoring technologies that will make workplaces safer if not also more efficient.

Automated kiosks and digital signage, particularly health monitoring systems, represent some of many technologies being introduced. The contact tracing technology market alone in the U.S. — which has also drawn the attention of the office furniture, construction and design industries — is pegged at around $4 billion, according to a report in The New York Times, based on estimates from International Data Corp.

Industry's response to the "new normal" began as soon as quarantines were announced in early spring. The momentum has since escalated.

In May, this website summarized 40 self-service solutions introduced in response to the coronavirus pandemic. One article explored solutions designed to dispense safety products and/or allow locations to sanitize self-service equipment, while the other focused on kiosks with temperature sensors.

Since then, innovations have nearly doubled. Where some systems focus on limited functions, such as dispensing personal protective equipment, others now include diverse offerings, such as temperature detection, identity verification, population monitoring and more.

Following is a summary of self-service technologies designed to protect visitors from COVID-19.

Advanced Kiosks

Advanced Kiosks' new Guardian Kiosk can detect temperature from a person's face with an accuracy of less than 1 degree Fahrenheit. If the temperature is over a predetermined threshold, an alert sounds. Additionally, the kiosk uses an artificial intelligence system to analyze the face and see if the person is known to the kiosk, such as a company employee, providing a stronger level of access control than typical key card access methods.

The facial recognition technology even works if the person is wearing a mask, and can be configured to sound an alert if a mask is absent.
