Network Presence Sensing uses an emergent system behavior of wireless communications to detect the presence of humans.
When devices communicate with each other, their wireless transmissions interact with the environment as they propagate through space. During normal operation, the radios provide network diagnostic information to aid network formation and diagnose communications issues – Ivani’s NPS technology analyzes this data to derive human presence in a detection area.
In NPS, we refer to the area bounded by a set of nodes as a detection area. NPS uses 3 or more nodes to define a detection area.
Network diagnostic information will be collected from communications between those devices and analyzed to make determinations about human presence in the physical detection area.
