The 30 Top Technology Innovations of 2020

Dolph Pick: Xandar Kardian Occupancy Sensor

Why should your customers be interested in this product? Because 30% ($200 billion annually) is wasted each year heating and cooling commercial buildings. The innovative Presence Detector from Xandar Kardian can substantially reduce this energy loss. The manufacturer claims 99% accurate presence detection with less than 0.01% false alarms. Most presence sensors utilize either ultrasonic or PIR motion sensors.

The Xandar Kardian sensor utilizes micro vibration (vital signs) from the body. These sensors use a new thresholding method for impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) radar-based detection applications by taking both the false alarm and miss-detection rates into consideration. Some popular applications include 99% true occupancy, occupant wellness monitoring, people counting, real usage-based janitorial services and smart co-working spaces.
