Glory Star, partnered initially with Aurora Multimedia, just launched its own line of TAURI Temperature-Check Tablets. Designed to screen people when entering healthcare, manufacturing or government facilities, hotels, restaurants, conference centers, retail stores, schools and gyms, TAURI is a touch-free private temperature-check and messaging system in one tablet.
You may recall seeing this before — as it was originally launched as an Aurora product on rAVe RADIO (see the video below) — and I am not privy to what happened with its partnership with Aurora but, this seems to indicate that Glory Star, based in Hong Kong, decided to go direct.
Glory Star’s TAURI Temperature-Check Tablet was built leveraging the same technology the company uses in its self-service tablet-based Nebula Total Kiosks Series.
The system’s result message can be customized. For example, if a high temperature is detected, the tablet can display a message such as, “Please step aside for a customer service agent to assist you.” The tablets are also equipped with an HDMI output, allowing results to be mirrored on a second screen, such as one located behind a reception or security desk. Both features keep health data private and secure.
TAURI is available in 7-inch, 10.5-inch, 15.6-inch and 21.5-inch models and can be deployed anywhere using VESA standard mounts, and each tablet is embedded with the TAURI Application, which immediately launches upon start-up and doesn’t require operators to sift through menus or additional applications. Initial setup and calibration take only seven minutes using the interactive user interface.
TAURI uses a body heat algorithm for temperature accuracy with a tolerance of +/- 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit (+/- 0.3 degrees Celsius) and a refresh rate of 64 hertz. Based on biological and environmental factors that can impact temperature data, the system’s self-calibration feature automatically attunes to the environment of the room. Guests are scanned in three seconds and from up to three feet away.
The tablet also includes face detection and optional face recognition. And, an API is also available for system integration. The data collected from TAURI devices can be sent to a server. But, this device does not appear to be FDA or HIPAA approved, yet.
Here’s a video on how it works:
