Labs Idea #2: Detect Movements in Buildings with Sensirion's Differential Pressure Sensor
Persons and objects cause air turbulences when moving around. Sensirion's differential pressure sensor can detect the direction of such air turbulences. Thus, it is possible to determine the direction of movement of persons and objects passing by the air flow sensor. This valuable information can be used to drive actions for building control or surveillance purposes. A smart home might turn on lightning in the direction of detected movement. A smart thermostat might increase or decrease temperature based on room occupancy and load.
