In the latest Engineers' Insight Martin Keenan explains how the development of PIR sensor technology is opening it up to new applications.

Adapting PIR sensor technology to new applications

The passive infrared sensor (PIR) seems so familiar that it is easy to miss the many applications that exist for it and the subtleties of engineering that guide the best ways in which to use it. But thanks to the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), PIR sensor technology is now being adapted into new applications.


In the latest Engineers' Insight, Martin Keenan investigates how manufacturers are adapting their PIR sensors for this new wave of applications.
