Abstract. This paper describes a technical solution to stop the spread of COVID-19 by creating a system consisting of a video camera with a thermal sensor connected to a web-based platform, which would help to manage to restrict access of people who have fever into a building. The main purpose of the project system is to measure body temperature, to detect and to recognize the person that has at the moment or had fever in the past 14 days, the registration in the database of both the fever and the person, and validate the access of the person in the building if it has a temperature below 37 degrees Celsius. The technical details as analysis and determination of the domain of interest, development of the new system design, functional and non-functional requirements, interface, project planning, technical specification and quality of the proposed solution are discussed. The proposed system aims to reduce the number of employees responsible for collecting the temperature, thus no longer exposing them to the risk of infection.

Keywords: covid-19, thermal camera, body temperature, OpenCV library, activity diagram, user interface.
