PIR sensor array for hand motion recognition

Presentation / Conference
Wojtczuk, P., Armitage, A., Binnie, D., & Chamberlain, T. (2011, August)
PIR sensor array for hand motion recognition. Paper presented at SensorDevices 2011, Nice, France
Abstract—In this paper we present our work towards a hand gesture recognition system realised with a passive thermal infrared sensor array. In contrast with the majority of re...

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...
