Checks at Schools
Sakura Nursery School Selects TAURI Temperature Check Tablet
for Fast, Stress-less, Autonomous Scanning
After experiencing stressful and time-consuming temperature checks that caused traffic jams and lack of proper social distancing the Sakura Nursery School in Japan, selected the TAURI Temperature Check tablet. TAURI is a patented-pending contactless, highly accurate tablet that instantly and autonomously screens the school’s 370 kindergarten students and doubles as a messaging/digital signage system.
“The response to TAURI has been extremely positive,” said Masahiro Hori, Sakura’s principal. “The children happily check their temperature every morning. The parents have said they’re glad that it has reduced the amount of time it takes to do checks, and teachers have one less job to do in the morning. In this aspect, they are back to their pre-COVID-19 work routine.”
TAURI combines Glory Star’s expertise of creating and programming commercial-grade tablet solutions with the leading sensor hardware to create a fast, worry-free, and healthy experience. Because TAURI is tablet, it feels familiar and sets users at ease. A student simply walks up to the tablet and it intelligently detects their face from up to three feet away. It automatically begins scanning. Results are delivered in less than 3 seconds. The tablet’s sensor and body heat algorithm ensure a temperature accuracy with a tolerance of +/- 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit (+/- 0.3 degrees Celsius) and a refresh rate of 64Hz.
TAURI solved numerous impediments for Sakura. It eliminated the need for another person to perform scans and prevents any contact with skin. As a result, it helps adhere to social distancing measures while promoting clean surfaces. What’s more, the speed at which it detects helps the school prevent long queues of students and cars. Teachers, students, and parents are able to proceed quickly on with their day with no interruptions.
For many schools, technology purchases need to provide long-lasting benefits to optimize budgets. With that in mind, Glory Star designed TAURI benefits to extend beyond a simple temperature check device. It functions as an affordable, easy-to-use digital signage screen, providing a long-term solution with a greater ROI. When the organization no longer needs to scan temperatures, the capability can be deactivated. The signage feature can continue to provide parents and students with important reminders, information, or sponsor campaigns
