Occupancy detection/ people counting
mmWave sensor family provides precision and accuracy for occupancy detection and people counting applications.

mmWave sensor family provides precision and accuracy for occupancy detection and people counting applications.

Our mmWave solutions for occupancy detection/ people counting enable 3D detection and tracking of multiple people or objects with precise position, velocity and angle information. Simplify solutions by ignoring non-moving objects such as chairs and tables and filtering clutter from moving objects such as fans, curtains or blinds.

  • Detection and tracking of people indoors up to 14m and outdoors up to 100m
  • Object classification to reduce false detections and triggers
  • Fine resolution to distinguish objects with minimal spacing (less than 50mm) for accurate people counting
