Area Luce develops and produces optical systems for monitoring, surveillance, and security. Our offer includes pyrome-tric sensors optics, IR illuminators, panoramic lenses, micro-lenses, TOF and LIDAR systems.
Pyrometric sensors can collect the energy emitted from a thermal source, converting it into an electric signal. The human body emits radiation in the range of 8-14um wavelength (LWIR zone) and, by means of a specific optics, this energy can be gathered on the sensor, allowing it to identify human presence. Typically optics operate selectively on some angular sectors detecting the movement of the warm body across the monitored area: this allows to identify human presence among the other possible static warm bodies in the environment.
