Utilization of Thermopile sensor at an early stage of human detection is challenging as there are many things produce thermal heat other than human such as electrical appliances and animals. Therefrom, an algorithm for early presence detection has been developed through the study of human body temperature behaviour with respect to the room temperature. The change in non-contact detected temperature of human varied according to body parts. In an indoor room, upper parts of human body change up to 3 o C whereas lower part ranging from 0.58 o C to 1.71 o C. The average changes in temperature of human is used as a conditional set-point value in the program algorithm to detect human presence. The current position of human and its respective angle is gained when human is detected to be presented at certain pixels of sensor array. Human position estimated successfully as the developed sensory system is tested to Stand Fan.
