KC Wearable has partnered with a number of national authorities across Europe, including the Italian police and a major airport in Rome, to distribute the KC Smart Helmet as a tool to fight Covid-19.

The helmet is designed to help officials combat the spread of the disease by using a fast-scanning infrared camera, which is connected to an augmented reality (AR) headset to measure people’s temperature in real time. The helmet can scan up to 13 people at once and 200 per minute.

KC Wearable global head Dr Jie Guo said: “We are extremely pleased to be working with authorities across Europe as the continent has looked to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we have seen in many countries, the ability to identify the virus is the first step in being able to control it. The KC Helmet allows officials to do just that by providing them with an accurate detection method. The key for us has always been allowing normal life to resume by keeping people safe. The KC Helmet is helping countries achieve this.”
