'Coughing recognition camera' that recognizes coughing sounds in real time and displays the location of coughing people with images has been developed.

The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) announced on the 3rd that a research team led by Park Yong-hwa, a professor of mechanical engineering, developed a cough-recognition camera that boasts 87.4% accuracy in collaboration with SM Instruments (CEO Kim Young-key). The research team expects the technology to be used as medical equipment that can detect the prevalence of infectious diseases in crowded public places or monitor patients' conditions at all times in hospitals.


On August 3rd, an article about the "Coughing Recognition Camera" co-developed by SM Instruments with the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) was reported through the Maeil Business News Korea.

At a time when the Corona 19 virus is spreading, the use of a "cough-recognition camera" in public places and many dense facilities will greatly help prevent and detect the virus early.
