Project Description

Body temperature measurement video analysis system at the  Library of Rome

DAB Sistemi Intergrati oversaw the creation of the video analysis system for measuring body temperature at the National Central Library of Rome, which is located within the archaeological area of ​​Castro Pretorio and is also known as the “Vittorio Emanuele II Library”, from the name of the personality to which it was named at the time of its establishment (1875).

The Library with its 60 thousand square meters is the largest in Italy, called to collect and preserve the entire Italian publishing production and to enhance its assets.

Today, to ensure the safety of users and employees and joining the battle to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, the Library has prepared all the safety measures for the gradual reopening of services to the public.

Admission is limited and users can only access if equipped with masks and disposable gloves. Upon entry, the user is subjected to the temperature display. DAB Sistemi Integrati oversaw the creation of the video analysis system for measuring body temperatures.

Specifically, it is a KIT consisting of a Bi – Spectrum camera and a Black body: the camera is able to perform a rapid screening of the skin surface temperature and to detect potential feverish states, the Black body is the tool that, inserted in the shooting field, it provides a constant and precise temperature reference and the camera uses to automatically calibrate itself and increase the accuracy of the measurement. The camera is also equipped with video analysis algorithms capable of simultaneously providing a normal and thermal image of the scene being shot.

The system is already in operation and represents an example of a sustainable and integrated project. In fact, the technologies adopted can be used and implemented in the existing video surveillance system guaranteeing a safeguard of the investments made.

“They are – explains Director De Pasquale – the two sides of the same coin: the absolute priority is to ensure the safety and health of users and employees and, on the other hand, we never stop believing in our responsibility as guardians of the heritage. that we keep available to readers, students, scholars and researchers. This is why we have chosen such an effective tool “.
