Paper Abstract

The aim of this study is to design and develop a wireless distributed pyroelectric infrared sensor system which can track multiple humans. By using TI’s micro-controller MSP430149 and RF transceiver TRF6901, we have implemented a prototype multiple human tracking system, which can track two people in both follow-up and crossover scenarios with average tracking errors less than 0.5 m. The proposed wireless distributed infrared sensor system can not only run as a stand alone inmate/patient monitoring system under all illumination conditions, but also serve as a complement for conventional video and audio human tracking systems.
