Misty Temperature Screening Assistant

Misty Robotics’ goal is to create a robot platform (hardware and software) that any developer can use to build useful and immediately applicable robot applications.

A number of early customers have started building solutions. When the Covid crisis hit, companies started to realize that to be safe, checking people’s temperature on entry into a building would be a powerful preventative measure. So, Misty decided to build a specific application for temperature screening.

It took about 30 days to go from idea to beta application that is validated in office environments. The application includes:

  • Automated, contactless, and touchless temperature screening
  • Interactive health question survey with configurable screening questions
  • Customizable greetings 
  • Immediate pass/fail result determination and recording
  • SMS or email notifications/alerts
  • Web-based administration and reporting 
  • Choice of 25 languages 
  • Polite and engaging interaction experience

I think it’s an awesome alternative to the approach of having a human being do the screening. The idea of having a human greeter temperature screen people on entry into an office environment just sounds like an unsafe, tedious, and uncomfortable job to me right now.

Misty is in beta with this and already has several paid beta customers. If you are interested in learning more, sign up for a demo.
