Recognition of simple gestures using a PIR sensor array

Journal Article
Wojtczuk, P., Armitage, A., Binnie, D., & Chamberlain, T. (2012)
Recognition of simple gestures using a PIR sensor array. Sensors & transducers, 14, 83-94
We present an approach that is intended for simple gesture control using a relatively inexpensive pyroelectric array detector. The detector is manufactured using standard wafe...
