IR imaging startup funds for human activity detection product
Led by Demeter Partners and Phitrust Impact Investors with participation from existing and new investors, the funding will be used to accelerate and broaden product development and expand sales and marketing. Irlynx’s first product is a sensor for human activity that can perform presence and absence detection, person counting, and movement analysis.
The technology is a low-cost, uncooled pyroelectric detector based on a CMOS-compatible manufacturing process. It can be prepared as an array of from 16 by 16 pixels up to 128 by 128 pixels with a thermal resolution of 1°C. The main applications are energy saving, assisted living, and security.
Irlynx was established in 2012. Its first products and development kits for them will be available from the beginning of 2016.
