A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11911132B2) discloses a device designed to accurately measure a person's core temperature by utilizing a temperature sensor and an orientation sensor. The device is equipped with a processor and computer-readable memory that stores instructions for correcting peak temperature readings based on the orientation sensor data and determining the core temperature based on a percentile of multiple temperature readings ranging between 70 and 90 percent.

Furthermore, the device described in the patent includes multiple integrated circuits that enable short-range communication, long-range communication, and processing tasks. To ensure optimal performance, a heat shield is positioned near the temperature sensor to dissipate heat generated by the integrated circuits. Additionally, the processor is strategically placed within the heat shield to maintain an appropriate operating temperature for accurate temperature readings.
