Thermal imaging cameras are expected to play a big part as Japan begins to reopen following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Retailers in Tokyo are embracing the technology as a way to quickly scan multiple customers for fevers.
The iconic 109 department store in Tokyo’s trendy Shibuya district reopened today equipped with thermal imaging cameras at its entrance, while Isetan Mitsukoshi’s flagship department store opened over the weekend with thermal cameras at its entrances.
The Tokyo metropolitan government has announced that it will set aside 4.2 billion yen ($39 million) to help schools adopt the technology.
