Police Launch Fever-Detecting ‘Pandemic Drone’ in Effort to ‘Flatten the Curve’ of COVID-19

Police Launch Fever-Detecting ‘Pandemic Drone’ in Effort to ‘Flatten the Curve’ of COVID-19

This is Draganfly’s new “Pandemic Drone” and it can detect when people on the ground have fevers and determine if the public is adhering to social distancing. It’s being used to assist first responders in the Westport Police Department in Connecticut as a part of its “Flatten the Curve Pilot Program.”

Comparable to a “Terminator-like” computer vision system, the Pandemic Drone is equipped with a specialized sensor that displays temperature/fever, heart, and respiratory rates/abnormalities. It also detects sneezing and coughing in crowds, workplaces and anywhere where groups may congregate. Draganfly’s technology can precisely detect infectious conditions from a distance of 190 feet.



Drone operators can see if a person is surrounded by a green circle, which means they are six feet away from another person. As soon as they are closer than six feet, their circle turns red. Fairfield County, CT, becomes the first U.S. municipality to test drone technology to assist first responders in combatting coronavirus.
