MoveAround v1.0 (obsolete)

Detects presence in upto 8 regions of humans, animals or other heat-emitting objects. The sensor has a total field of view of roughly 41 degrees horizontally by 6.0 degrees vertically, ie. per region a view of 5.1 degrees horizontally by 6.0 degrees vertically. Can be used to count the number of people passing by. Use the sensor data to calculate movement direction and speed of these heat emitting objects within a couple of meters. View the sensor data using our MoveAround software (see below). Be there not or be I-CubeX-ed. A digital I2C sensor, that outputs high resolution, low-noise signals. Need longer cables ? Use the ExtendCable2D. For a single region version, try the HotSpot2D. If you just need to know if there's somebody moving or not in a room, try the MoveOn.

Application examples

  1. Use for detecting the number, direction and speed of visitors present and/or passing by an exhibit or through a walkway.
  2. Combine with a TapTiled floor, some MoveOn and/or ReachClose sensors and make sure every move of your visitor has an effect. The Flash + SeeLaser combo allows you to implement break-beams that could indicate borders or thresholds.

Software support

  • Our EditorX software allows you to configure the digitizer to process and map the sensor data of multiple sensors simultaneously.

  • 19 Jan 2018: MoveAround v3.21 for MacOS and Windows from source code in Max. For multiple sensors or sensor outputs, run multiple instances of the application, each started in its own folder. Requires a digitizer with firmware v7.51 higher or v7.33 or v6.33. Use together with Connect (MacOS / Windows).
  • 03 Nov 2017: MoveAround v3.20 for MacOS (Sierra or lower) and Windows from source code in Max. For multiple sensors or sensor outputs, run multiple instances of the application, each started in its own folder. Requires a digitizer with firmware v7.5, v7.3, v7.2, v6.3 or v6.2. Use together with Connect (MacOS / Windows).

Application notes
  1. Make sure the sensor is plugged into the digitizer with the red wire connected to power. Reversing the plug may cause damage to the sensor.
  2. Requires a digitizer with digital (I2C) ports, eg. the USB-microDig or the Wi-microDig.
  3. The default I2C address is 104 (0x68). Both I2C lines have 10 kOhm pull-up resistors.
  4. For more technical specs, and to find out how to access the sensor data, please consult this datasheet.
