Human detection using sensors preserves privacy. The Passive Infrared sensor is used to detect the presence of humans. But this detects the human only if they are in motion. Grid-EYE sensor overcomes the limitation of the PIR sensor by detecting the human at a stationary position. The Grid-EYE sensor detects the human using the infrared radiation radiated by the human body. Every human radiates the infrared energy of a specific wavelength range. The absorbed incident radiation changes the temperature of a material. Detection of a human is being used in applications like automation systems, industrial and manufacturing, medical field, security purposes, etc.
