Driving Factor

Increasing Adoption of Smart Wearable Devices amid COVID-19 to Boost the Market

The havoc wreaked by the coronavirus pandemic outbreak has forced frontline workers to wear smart devices such as smart helmets and smart watches to screen and detect potentially infected people. For example, in China, Shenzhen-based tech company Kuang-Chi developed smart helmets for police officers to enable to automatically identify a person’s elevated temperature from a 5-meter distance. Similarly, smart helmets were distributed among healthcare workers in Mumbai, India in July 2020 that equipped with thermo-scan sensors to check body temperature during door-to-door screening drive amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In the UAE, too, specialist police teams wore smart helmets with thermal scanners to screen people at the Sharjah International Book Fair in November 2020. These helmets not only ensure quick detection of infection in people but also protect frontline workers from catching the infection from patients.
