Grid-EYE® for Human Detection Applications

The Grid-EYE® Sensor can detect temperature distribution in a two-dimensional area without contact in retail stores, shopping malls, offices, and many other human detection applications. The Grid-EYE® Sensor works in tandem with software to identify the number and position of people based on their body temperature, outputting a thermal data image and recognizes where appropriate distancing or density is or isn't maintained.
