Our Pyroelectric sensors are an interesting device that allows you to detect the presence of a person while hiding the sensor from view. This property works well when you want to create an otherwise static poster into an animated one. For simplicity, we used an LED, a microcontroller Arduino, and our SS-430 IR Pyroelectric Sensor. Let me set the environment. Here at KAIC, our application intelligence lab, located in KEMET tower (check it out here), we wanted to highlight a message within a poste ...
