Omron develops super-sensitive thermal detector for smartphones
With the intention of eventually using it as an energy-saving device, Japanese electronics firm Omron has developed a thermal area sensor that can use a smartphone camera to detect heat.
Dubbed the D6T non-contact MEMS thermal sensor, it can effectively detect people even when they remain completely stationary. A lot of sensors these days rely on motion for detection, but Omron’s super-sensitive infrared temperature sensor works without it.
