Motion sensors are all around us, the most common application of motion sensor is the automatic doors that we come across when we walks into a grocery store. Since mid-1800s, motion sensors have been used globally. In the 1900s, astronomers used infrared light to detect the movement of planets and stars, but back then this was its only use. The discovery of radar led to modern day motion sensing devices. Samuel Bagno used the principles of radar detection to produce the ultrasonic motion alarm.
In ancient times, farmers used to gauge the movement of stars and decided when to plant crops and harvest them. The first motion sensor system radar was pioneered by Heinrich Hertz. According to the properties of waves, Hertz found that waves could bounce off of objects and had different speeds.
The World War II gave a perfect platform for the development of motion sensors technology. Decades of study regarding the properties of waves facilitated detection of air and naval vessels. In 1940s, radar technology was adequately advanced such that the military could identify attacks in advance and guided their aircrafts. The ubiquitous utilization of radar would lead to the other uses of motion detectors after the war. The report describes the various technical advantages and insights provided by motion sensor products.
