New Opportunities for the Latest Presence Detecting Sensor

By Enterprise Technology Review | Friday, September 20, 2019

The sensor technology comes cost-effectively, powered by the battery and IoT-driven sensors that can help in faster connectivity with the impending 5G network.

FREMONT, CA: The introduction of new sensor technology has brought fresh and widely efficient presence detection in several industries such as construction and real estate. The advancements in IoT suggest that more and more devices can be connected. The machines are connected to the new sensor technology with the help of a gateway that collects information in a vast number and sends them to the cloud via 5G or any preferred network. In the connected world, IoT and sensors are necessary for each other to come up with a variety of technical solutions such as smart homes and buildings. It is developing rapidly by upgrading the old sensors that only controlled the relay for the functioning of lights. It is converting the old ones to a much better form where it can send data to the hub, and in any way it wants directly.

The sensors for presence detection are generally created with pyroelectric sensors, which can only sense the variations in temperature and have limited coverage. On the other hand, the new sensor holds the ability to sense a human presence by detecting heat radiation. Subsequently, it is considered to be a much better device for detecting static people in any given space.

The latest presence detection is prepared with a thermopile, which is made up of nanotechnology. With the help of it, the device can measure an absolute or relative temperature and heat flow. It also helps in detecting any form of movement or the presence and stays passive whenever it is not working to save energy consumption.

There are areas where the application of the technology is prominent such as in smoke and gas detection, absolute temperature and heat measurements, smart offices, and plumbing. By utilizing modern sensors, companies can reduce energy consumption and expand the battery life of the device as it activates only when there is somebody present in the space. They can also be used to trigger biometric authentication systems, like fingerprint scanning or facial and iris recognition.

When it comes to benefits, the sensors provide numerous advantages as it is based on nanotechnology. It is thin and durable, along with being flexible and cost-effective to manufacture large volumes of data. It is appropriate for every type of application that needs small sensors where temperature or heat flow can be measured.
