Detection of Human Body Motion Based on Electrostatic Measurements in the Indoor Environment
An effective non-contact electrostatic detection method is used for human body motion detection. Theoretical analysis and pratical experiments are carried out to prove that this method is effective in the field of human body monitoring, in which a model for human body induced potential by stepping has been proposed. Furthermore, experiment results also prove that it’s feasible to measure the average velocity and route of human body motion by multiple electrodes array. What’s more the real-time velocity and direction of human body motion can be determined by orthogonal electrostatic detector array, and the real-time velocity and direction of human body motion can be obtained within the range of 2 meters.
