Monitoring the movement of pedestrians using low-cost infrared detectors: initial findings.

Conference Proceeding
Kerridge, J., Armitage, A., Binnie, D., Lei, L., & Sumpter, N. (2003)
Monitoring the movement of pedestrians using low-cost infrared detectors: initial findings
Monitoring the movement of pedestrians in everyday environments is difficult, especially if accurate data are required. Typically, data pertaining to the origins and destinati...

Infrared sensing using pyroelectric polymers.

Conference Proceeding
Armitage, A., Benjamin, K., Setiadi, D., Weller, H., & Binnie, D. (1996)
Infrared sensing using pyroelectric polymers. In A. T. Augousti, & N. M. White (Eds.), Sensors & their Applications VIII, 297-302
