Japan Computer Vision Corp. ("JCV"), a SoftBank Corp. subsidiary, has deployed the AI-powered integrated facial recognition and thermal imaging device "SenseThunder" at 20 karaoke BIG ECHO stores. Operated by DAIICHIKOSHO CO., LTD. ("DAIICHIKOSHO"), BIG ECHO aims to provide a safe and secure environment for customers to enjoy karaoke.

JCV's AI Thermography device "SenseThunder" integrates a thermal imaging camera with unique facial recognition technology to effectively screen above-normal temperature. The device can identify faces in 0.5 seconds from up to 1.2m while accurately estimating temperature measurements within ±0.4℃. "SenseThunder" aims to help maintain the social distance between staff and customers by enabling customers to self-check their physical condition, thus creating a care-free environment for them to enjoy karaoke and have a great time.

With this deployment, as part of the "New Lifestyle" movement, DAIICHIKOSHO aims to ensure both the staff and customer safety and to set an example as a leading karaoke company within the industry. With this deployment, JCV hopes to contribute in the recovery of Japanese society and will continue to assist in the promotion of safe and secure building access environments. 

No personal data or images of customers will be stored in this deployment.

The device is not a medical instrument. Please seek a medical instrument for measuring body temperature for a medical purpose.
