We just published an important article on SENSORS, where we quantitatively demonstrated that the "working distance", "angle of inclination", and "light conditions" can strongly impact temperature measurements obtained with the contactless infrared thermometers commonly used during the COVID-19 pandemic. and Forli24Ore created a small interview about it. Here the links of the post:
