Teledyne FLIR has unveiled a smart building sensor to monitor room occupancy at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week. 

It joins the release of two new mobile phone models in the Thermal by FLIR product line. 

The smart building sensor features the Lepton thermal micro camera module and is used to monitor building occupancy allowing building managers to monitor capacity without compromising privacy. The sensor is also expected to assist with asset management, manage people flow, and help reduce energy and operational costs.

The two new mobile phones offer what the company says are the most “affordable, thermal-enabled handsets on the market,” also incorporating Lepton’s thermal sensor that allows users to leverage infrared energy in their mobile phone camera.

"Teledyne FLIR is providing its ecosystem collaborators with significant improvements in functionality and design, offering half a century of thermal engineering expertise to help extract even more value from the highest-volume selling thermal camera of all time, the Lepton," said Mike Walters, Teledyne FLIR’s vice president. 

Visitors to FLIR’s booth at MWC were also  able to experience the company’s hands-free, voice-controlled thermal camera module using the RealWear Navigator headset. The thermal camera wearable is designed to help frontline industrial workers quickly and safely locate temperature anomalies in industrial environments, and share findings in real time using Microsoft Teams or Zoom.
