Treegreen Feasibility study
07/05/2008 - 26/08/2008
An SME, Treegreen, had developed a demonstrator
of an energy saving system which used a Passive Infrared Sensor to switch off
domestic appliances when there is nobody in the room. However, early versions
of the product had limitations due to the fact that the IR sensor is
essentially a motion detector, and could be confused by stationary people.
The feasibility study looked at the electronics hardware
and suggested ways in which the sensitivity could be improved to reduce the
proportion of times the detector was confused by immobile people. The company
has gone on to develop the product and the Treegreen ‘Energy Egg’ has won many
awards and is now available from a large range of suppliers.
Treegreen Feasibility study is a Innovation Award project funded by EDTC.
Carried out in collaboration with and others.
