Human presence detection is a continuously sought of an issue by the scientific community. Visual camera-based technologies have emerged recently with low cost and easy usage. However, these technologies have been increased the user privacy issues. Hence it is highly essential to design a human detection system without compromising the user privacy, comfort, cost and easy deployment. The pyroelectric infrared (PIR) based sensor systems are introduced however this technology is incapable to detect the presence of stationary human because it can detect the fluctuating signals only. In this paper, we have proposed a novel infrared (IR) based sensor system to detect the human presence either mobile or immobile in targeted locations with high accuracy. The proposed infrared (IR) sensor is designed to sense the heat radiation emitted by the human body, it detects the human presence accurately in targeted locations. The proposed IR based sensor system has successfully deployed in a targeted location and tested successfully for detecting the human presence and also other objects.
