MUNICH--29 Jul--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Governmental regulations all over the world created an urgent need for solutions to secure social distancing in public buildings in order to support slowing down the spread of Covid-19. Within three months, Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) developed a solution that counts people while entering and leaving buildings or rooms and ensures social distancing at the same time. The Smart entrance counter solution is a miniaturized, discrete radar board (250 mm x 150 mm) that accurately and anonymously counts people with one single 60 GHz radar sensor and integrated software. A traffic light system informs about if an entry is allowed or not.

"We aimed at quickly creating an effective solution that allows everyone of us to securely move within public spaces, in offices, airports or restaurants according to the regulations of the so-called new normal," says Andreas Urschitz, Division President Power & Sensor Systems Infineon Technologies. "Our Smart entrance counter solution is a closed system. On the one hand, it prevents overcrowding, on the other hand, it enables businesses to keep their operations running. And most importantly, due to the use of radar technology, personal data are 100 percent protected. The system counts a person, but does not know who it is."

The expected volume for this kind of solution amounts to 90 million units globally. Infineon's Smart entrance counter solution with XENSIV(TM) 60 GHz radar sensor works contactlessly and can easily be installed on the side or ceiling of an entrance or exit. It can be implemented in all kinds of building types, such as public buildings, retail and grocery stores, restaurants, schools or corporate spaces, e.g. canteens, offices, and the like. Furthermore, Infineon is already working on the next generation that will include further features.
