Barrett-Jackson has announced the company is adding Draganfly’s Vital Intelligence Technology and Varigard disinfectant spray to its health and safety protocols for the 2021 Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale, March 20-27.
Draganfly, an industry-leading drone solutions and systems developer, will implement its “Safely Opening Sites” protocol during the main auction days, according to a press release.
“We take the health and safety of our guests extremely seriously,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson in a prepared statement.
“We were lauded for the efforts we took to help create a safe environment for our guests during our Fall Auction in Scottsdale last year, and we want to go even further than what was done during that event. We’re extremely pleased about the added safety Draganfly will bring to our Scottsdale Auction, and we’ll continue to implement new health solutions as they become available.”
During Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale Auction in March, Draganfly will supply a Vital Intelligence system kiosk to provide employees with vital-sign screening to help deliver a safer workplace environment and customer experience during the event, the release said.
Draganfly will also provide spraying services using patented drone technology of the Varigard “one-of-a-kind, revolutionary organic sanitizer” that provides up to 24 hours of pathogen sequestration and kill-efficacy. Spraying by drone will occur after the auction closes, and not when guests are present.
Draganfly’s Vital Intelligence technology Smart Vital assessment platform and telehealth app can automatically detect with voluntary consent body temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure and O2 saturation, all from a camera that takes seconds to capture the information.
The technology will be deployed for employees and event staff via a kiosk and smartphones, noted the release.
Safety measures already in place for the Barrett-Jackson 2021 Scottsdale Auction include general admission tickes available for purchase online, in advance only and no gate sales in addition to required face coverings and no-touch temperature checks for all attendees prior to entering, the release added.
