IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Advantech, a global leader of advanced IoT intelligence systems and embedded platforms, marked a successful 2020—despite the year’s global pandemic challenges—with prestigious honors and recognitions, as well as new solutions to help organizations around the world combat COVID.

This past year, Advantech was laser-focused on embracing its core values of environmental stewardship, social responsibility and corporate governance (ESG) to further its vision of enabling a more intelligent planet.

“I’m extremely proud that despite the global impact of COVID-19, Advantech met any and all challenges head-on while also being recognized and honored as a world leader in cutting-edge embedded products and solutions,” said Ween Niu, general manager of Advantech North America. “Every Advantech team member pivoted and pulled together to not only continue providing our existing products and solutions, but also developed new solutions to help organizations address and combat COVID-19.”
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Advantech developed a suite of highly innovative solutions to help reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19. One such solution is an AI-based infection prevention solution. Advantech’s Visitor Thermal Screening System, released earlier this year, can measure human body temperate from a distance and quickly pinpoints individuals within a group of people who have abnormal temperatures through a thermographic smart camera, video AI facial recognition and thermal screening. It’s ideal for small or large organizations screening employees and visitors.
