Thermal Sensors Target Hot Smart-Building Apps

ULIS announces the launch of ThermEye Building, a thermal sensor line for system integrators of detection and people counting equipment for connected buildings. The ThermEye Building range includes two new products: ThermEye-b90 and ThermEye-b120. Both 80×80 thermal sensors provide system integrators with advanced functionalities to detect presence (even when people are immobile) and localize and count people to improve capabilities in analyzing human activity and communicate with relevant smart building applications. Coupled with a 90° or 120° field of view (FOV) lens, a single ThermEye Building sensor can cover a zone of 30m2 (323 ft2), equivalent to a meeting room accommodating eight to ten people.

 

The product range is configured with a conventional video channel (50 images per second) and features an intermittent mode that is compatible with low-power consumption applications. One AA battery is required to run a ThermEye Building sensor when transmitting an image at two-minute intervals.

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 ThermEye Building product line guarantees occupant anonymity and privacy, as there is no facial recognition. This is said to be a plus for integrators wishing to use data to develop other future solutions for smart building applications that improve how facilities optimize space usage and energy management, detect potential fire hotspots and manage people flow during a fire.
