Disruptive Radar Technology Fuels Digital Sensor Revolution

Novelda is integrating XeThru sensor technology into high volume applications. Driven by the disruptive potential offered by the XeThru sensor technology, Novelda and STEINEL have initiated a collaboration to explore how the two companies can work together to improve the user experience and increase the value of presence sensors for the end-customers. With STEINEL, Novelda has developed True Presence, a sensor that uses people's respiration for accurate presence detection. The component will be the flagship for STEINEL presence detectors.

 

The idea behind the new and revolutionary True Presence sensor is to use people's respiration for accurate presence detection. Today, most available presence sensors are based on passive infrared radiation (PIR), ultrasound or microwave capable of detecting major and minor movements. They lack the ability to detect the presence of persons that are sitting still.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

The XeThru technology with its extreme sensitivity and accuracy allows for a very robust positioning and real-time presence detection. Being able to measure a person breathing up to 10 meters distance and providing distance measurements makes it possible to detect people that are sitting completely still or even sleeping under a duvet.
