Infrared Smart Sensors for Climate Control, Person Detection and Air Quality 2000-01-C053
Passive thermal infrared (IR) sensors are commonly used as non-contact temperature sensors, presence detectors or IR absorption gas sensors for many consumers and industrial applications. Due to their decreasing costs, small size, newly integrated signal conditioning and high reliability, these sensors are commencing into several automotive applications. This paper presents new thermal IR-sensors and describes possible automotive applications.
