Long-Range Human Body Sensing Modules with Electric Field Sensor 2008-01-0909

The authors have developed a long range version human body sensing module. This module has a high measurement accuracy with a capacitance of less than two femto Farads and can detect more distant human bodies compared with conventional sensors. Furthermore, optimizing the electrode structure of this module, noise tolerance and directivity have been improved. We produced some prototypes of this sensor module and evaluated the sensitivity of them in a vehicle. The results show that the prototype can detect a hand at the distance of 300 mm from the sensor electrode.
