These glasses will mainly be used by the authorities to scan people in public areas and transport stops, as a means to ensure the safety of all residents.

These innovative AI-powered glasses will also help authorities prevent the spread of other future pandemics as well.

The smart glasses can ALSO identify faces and sends related info about the person to the operation room…

Noting that, the smart glasses, ‘Rokid T1’, can detect the body temperature of people from a distance of 2-metres and can also measure the temps of 100 people at once. Once a person with high temperature has been detected, the glasses send a notification alerting the police.
