From exploring the mysteries of the universe to controlling your TV over a remote - infrared sensing technology is everywhere. IR Sense 2 click is designed for short-range infrared sensing applications.
IR Sense 2 click
IR Sense 2 click carries the AK9752, infrared sensor IC, which is capable of sensing wavelengths from 2 to 5μm. This Click board is well suited for human presence detection applications, especially wearables and IoT
The sensor is capable of detection through
IR Sense 2 click is ready to be used right out of the box since the chip comes with the factory calibrated offset.
Applications for this kind of sensor are many, and various. Human presence detection is the first one in line. Since the human body emits infrared waves, the sensor picks that up. The benefit here being that typical presence detection devices rely on movement, while an infrared sensor only depends on an object entering its range.
Art restoration and new galaxies
Did you know that infrared technology is used in art restoration? There was a famous case where the portrait of Isabella de'Medici was painted over by Victorians, who wanted to
Infrared sensing is also used for space exploration. Since there are numerous objects in the universe that are too cold to be registered in visible light, they are detected by scientists with the help of infrared. The "Mountains of Creation" is an image captured by the Spitzer Space Telescope.
