Glory Star’s TAURI Temperature Check Tablet Provides a Fast, Noninvasive, and Autonomous Scan in Seconds
A normal school day can be incredibly busy and stressful. Every minute has to be accounted for to maximize education. As the world learns to function in a pandemic, schools are having to juggle even more, from disinfecting surfaces throughout the day to wearing masks and temperature checks. At Sakura Nursery School, the administrators are helping ease the stress and anxiety with speedy and autonomous temperature checks.
With 370 kindergarteners, the need to checking everyone’s temperature stressful and incredibly time consuming. It was causing traffic jams in and around the school. Sakura looked for a better, smarter solution that would accelerate the process and make it less nerve-wracking on teachers, parents, students, and neighbors. The school found Glory Star’s budget-friendly TAURI Temperature Check tablet for the optimal solution.
Through many thoughtfully designed features, TAURI is able to create a fast, worry-free, and healthy experience for everyone. Because TAURI is tablet, it feels familiar. Afterall, students are accustomed to using tablet devices in school and at home, including reading stories, watching videos, and completing assignments. Leveraging this technology as a temperature solution helps everyone feel at ease.
TAURI combines Glory Star’s expertise of creating commercial-grade control solutions with the best sensor hardware and smart programming. Students simply walk up to the tablet and its intelligent capabilities differentiate a human face from other objects. As soon as a face appears up to three feet away, it automatically begins scanning. There are no buttons or triggers to push. Results are delivered in less than 3 seconds. The tablet’s sensor and body heat algorithm ensure a temperature accuracy with a tolerance of +/- 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit (+/- 0.3 degrees Celsius) and a refresh rate of 64Hz.
TAURI solved numerous obstacles for Sakura. It eliminated the need for another person to perform scans and prevents any contact with skin. As a result, it helps adhere to social distancing measures while promoting clean surfaces. What’s more, the speed at which it detects helps the school prevent long queues of students and cars. Teachers, students, and parents are able to proceed quickly on with their day with no interruptions.
The solution’s temperature messages can also be customized. For example, when a temperature is detected, it will alert that person should not proceed to class. This way, the school is able to lessen fears and guide parents to next steps quickly and efficiently. When no temperature is detected, it gives users a visible reassurance. In addition, users have the option to set TAURI to detect if a person is wearing a face mask, and subsequently issue an onscreen reminder. Organizations can also choose to take advantage of the tablet’s facial recognition technology to ensure that all students were scanned.
For many schools, technology purchases need to provide long-lasting benefits to optimize budgets. With that in mind, Glory Star designed TAURI benefits to extend beyond a simple temperature check device. It also functions as an affordable, easy-to-use digital signage screen, providing school organizations such as Sakura with a long-term solution with a greater ROI. When the organization no longer needs to scan temperatures, the capability can be deactivated. The signage feature can continue to provide parents and students with important reminders, information, or sponsor campaigns.
“The response to TAURI has been extremely positive,” said Masahiro Hori, Sakura’s principal. “The children happily check their temperature every morning. The parents have said they’re glad that it has reduced the amount of time it takes to do checks, and teachers have one less job to do in the morning. In this aspect, they are back to their pre-COVID-19 work routine.”
