Acconeer publish two new focus use cases within presence detection

To simplify and create faster development processes, Acconeer continuously publishes new focus use cases with associated reference applications and demonstration videos on its website. Customers are thereby allowed to download software and application development packages and can quickly initiate tests on their hardware or one of Acconeer's development platforms. By making the source code available, customers can easily adapt the reference application to their products.

Acconeer now publishes two new focus use cases for presence detection:

  • Smart Presence

Acconeer has created a software for smart presence, which means that the sensor can detect if a person is moving towards an object (such as a refrigerator or speaker) or is passing by the object. Combined with the sensor's ability to sense small movements, such as the pulse of a person, it is possible to determine if, for example, there is a living being in a smoke-filled room.

  • Presence detection in cars

Legislation in Europe, the United States, and Australia among others, will require car manufacturers to install alarms that detect if a child is forgotten in a locked car. Acconeer's sensor has a great opportunity of becoming the leading solution in this market, thanks to its sensitivity, smallness, power-efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.

On Acconeer's website, there is also a video demonstrating the new features.

Lars Lindell, CEO Acconeer, comments: "Presence detection in cars is an area that will show strong growth in the future, driven by both legislation and by car safety organizations. Considering that global car production amounts to more than 80 million cars per year, where each unit will require at least four sensors at a cost of SEK 25 - 35, you can easily understand that this will be a very large market. Through the partnership with ALPSALPINE, Acconeer is well positioned to become an important player in this area".
