Abstract

We design and develop a low-cost pyroelectric detector-based IR motion-tracking system. We study the characteristics of the detector and the Fresnel lenses that are used to modulate the visibility of the detectors. We build sensor clusters in different configurations and demonstrate their use for human motion tracking.
