An Israeli company called UVeye has developed contact-free, emergency-vehicle inspection systems equipped with thermal sensors that not only detect critical vehicle-safety problems, but also can identify drivers and passengers with fevers in the vehicle.

According to the company, UVeye is offering to equip health-related fleet operators with vehicle-inspection equipment on a not-for-profit basis during the current COVID-19 crisis. Among those eligible for assistance would be ambulance and police fleets, as well as delivery services for food and medical equipment.

"Our technology can help fleet operators maintain their vehicles in safe operating condition without the need for 'hands on' testing or inspection," said Amir Hever, UVeye's founder and CEO, in a statement. "As crisis conditions ease, we also will be able to assist car dealers, independent garages, and vehicle rental agencies in setting up inspection lanes that can ensure that their mechanics are not exposed to the virus."

Hever is hopeful its vehicle-inspection technology could assist federal, state and local government officials attempting to speed up the process of identifying people infected by the COVID-19 virus. The company envisions vehicle-inspection systems equipped with thermal sensors possibly being installed at emergency drive-through lanes set up at hospitals, health care facilities and other community locations to test for potential coronavirus victims.

According to Hever, UVeye is prepared to help equip drive-through check points in critical locations throughout the United States within the next week, adding that UVeye already has orders for the installation of contactless inspection systems with thermal sensor technology at several locations in both the UK and the U.S.
