 The 2020 IoT Innovators Awards

Luis Alvarez said his company was able to withstand a slowdown in business caused by the pandemic by focusing on IoT solutions for fever detection and contact tracing.

Alvarez, CEO of Salinas, Calif.-based Alvarez Technology Group, said his company’s fever detection solution, which ties together thermal imaging cameras, networking and software, isn’t meant to be a silver bullet for dealing with the coronavirus since people with COVID-19 can be asymptomatic.

Instead, he said, it’s meant to be a long-term solution that recognizes the course correction many organizations are making in the way the think about how illnesses and viruses spread in general.

“Before March of this year, we wouldn’t have thought anything about going to work and watching the guy in the other cubicle sneezing his nose off or the gal sitting down the hall coughing and wheezing. And we’re like, man, I hope I don’t get sick,” he said. “Now I don’t think that will ever happen again.”

Alvarez Technology Group is among several solution providers that have pivoted or expanded their IoT offerings to offer solutions that are helping organizations respond to health and safety needs brought about by the pandemic.

“This is what helped us really continue to build our business,” Alvarez said.

For the 2020 IoT Innovators Awards, CRN is honoring these solution providers and others, 25 in all, whose solutions range from remote assistance applications powered by augmented reality to digital twins for manufacturing. Take a look at this year’s IoT Innovators in the following slides.
