Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) rolled out the KC N901 smart helmet on Sunday for security personnel across Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO). The launching is in line with the Emirate’s commitment of ensuring safety and well-being of its community, and a showcase of the use of groundbreaking technologies for the same.
The new Smart Helmet is designed to help in contactless rapid thermal screening of individuals or crowds. The KC N901’s features include efficient thermal screening rapidly for both indoors and outdoors. Engineer Muammar Al Katheeri, Executive Vice President of Engineering and Smart City at DSOA, said, “DSOA is keen to ensure a safe environment for the whole DSO community and our business partners. In line with our commitment, and our focus on technological innovation, we found the implementation of a mobile thermal imaging camera allowed for the efficient continuation of business operations.”
He added, “The coronavirus pandemic, forcing populations around the world to self-quarantine and cities to go into strict lockdown, paved the way for numerous innovations. We have seen outstanding advancements in technology, 3D printing, ecommerce, and many more areas. DSOA is keen on exploring these innovations and providing the testbed needed to pilot them.”
He further stressed on commitment of DSOA to provide safe working environment for its employees, business partners, residents, visitors, and entire DSO community.
The KC N901 Smart Helmet is made using advanced composite meta-materials and designed to be comfortable for wearer. A variety of functional modules are featured that allow accurate temperature reading even at long distances, to ensure social distancing. It also features a pioneering AR display technology, that provides a large field of view at high resolution and with minimal blind spots.
Introduction of the Smart Helmet is a part of DSOA’s on-going disinfection drive across DSO and the development of a disinfection tunnel in-house. Also it is in line with DSOA’s recent Artificial Intelligence (AI) based solution deployment to support cities in ensuring adequate compliance with COVID-19 tackling measures.
