Safety equipment for human detection

Abstract

Two basic principles for the detection of human beings in a restricted area are presented in this paper. These principles are used in connection with safety equipment, although many of them still have physical limitations, which must be taken into account to ensure the equipment's functioning on all occasions. The two main principles are: touch sensing detectors and presence sensing detectors. From the latter, capacitive, ultrasound, optical, vision and microwave sensors are included in this paper. Some estimates from the adaptability of these principles to safety use are also discussed.
