Description of Startup:

IRLYNX develops and manufactures human activity sensing modules for Smart Cities, Smart Buildings and Smart Homes.

In particular, our sensing modules are able to detect presence or absence, count people, evaluate location, assess motion direction, distinguish human from animal and recognize posture.

These data open the way to many applications, including building and home automation to increase user comfort while saving energy, space management, and security. Finally, they allow to assist elderly people in their day-to-day living.

How does it work? We use thermal infrared technology to sense people activity: our detection array uses the heat that any human is emitting and transform it into electric signals that are directly processed inside our sensing module.
