#Tech New Infrared Sensor Distinguishes Humans From Objects https://t.co/UPiC733A7C

The newly-developed sensor, "Active-type Infrared Sensor," measures 44.5mm x 19mm x 13.5mm and comes in two models. The detection ranges of the "SN5-0186" and "SN5-0187" are up to 40cm and 100cm, respectively. (source: Nippon Ceramic) [Click to enlarge image] Nippon Ceramic Co Ltd developed a sensor that can distinguish between humans and objects and will start to mass-produce it in December 2015. The sensor detects infrared light emitted from a human body. Also, it measures a distance to the detected object based on the principle of triangulation and prevents misrecognition caused by color or reflectance. Unlike a pyroelectric sensor, which detects changes of infrared light caused by the entry of a human into the detection area, the new sensor detects the existence of infrared light having a specific wavelength. It differentiates objects whose temperature is close to that...
