PROPOSAL FOR A LOW-COST TECHNIQUE FOR REMOTE MONITORING OF BODY TEMPERATURE: AN APPLICATION FOR WORK SAFETY
This study aims to propose a cost-effective technical solution in monitoring the distance of workers operating in hazardous areas or under strong external influences. A prototype was built to measure body temperature, relative air humidity and ambient temperature through of an applied research. Body temperature data is display in a graph, within a predetermined period, wherein the measurement range can be easily set. As a result, the system first tests were stable solution and for using open source tools, it was possible to develop a low cost prototype.
