Naval Dockyard designs low-cost temperature sensor in wake of corona virus pandemic

Updated: Apr 16, 2020


The Naval Dockyard here has developed a low-cost handheld temperature sensor to screen its personnel in light of the corona virus outbreak in the city.As many as 20,000 personnel enter the 285-year-old naval dock and Western Naval Command in South Mumbai every day.

All personnel are allowed inside only after proper screening at the gates, the official said.


The infrared-technology-based sensor is manufactured using in-house resources under Rs 1,000 (which is fraction of the cost of temperature guns available in the market), he said.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, screening became essential to prevent the spread of the virus within the yard and the Western Fleet, he said.

There is a shortage of non-contact thermometers or temperature guns in the market and the device has become expensive since the outbreak, he said.
