SENCORFLOORS & MATS
Detecting presence, movement & direction of people and objects in real time.
First of its kind.
Sencorfloors will detect how many people enter, where entered, which route they followed, and where they are in real time.

How it works.
Our unique and fundamentally different way of sensing, enables us to use the floor as a competitive sensor for the first time and offers endless applications. Sencorfloors are very accurate pressure sensitive underlayments that are easy and fast to install and meant to replace a standard underlayment. It simply fits under standard commercial available soft and hard flooring finishes like carpets, hardwood, laminates, tiles and poured floors or can be supplied as an individual mat.
Sencorfloors can be calibrated. All items on a floor like couches, tables, chairs, beds etc. generate a certain pressure. By calibrating the floor with these in place, the Sencorfloor understands what is normal and will monitor changes in pressure and as a result detect presence, exact location, direction and movement to such an extent that even people or objects on a chair or bed will be noticed.
What it does.
Sencorfloors, in real time, detect presence, exact location, movement and direction. The floor itself can replace all motion and detection sensors within a building and be the central data input for security, home and building automation systems. The lay-out of all areas (both internal and external) that have been fit out with Sencorfloors can be digitally mirrored on floor plans on computers/tablets etc. allowing for real time monitoring or provide other software systems and products with real time input.
Examples include foolproof alarm signals indicating unauthorized intrusion or people falling, the ability to direct cameras, manage lights/AC/smart home appliances and insights into floor utilization. Sencorfloors could sharply increase response time in e.g. hospitals and nursing homes, vastly improving security in buildings or allowing elderly to keep living longer within the comfort of their own home.
Sencorfloors in and around elevators.
A Sencorfloor installed in an elevator car provides input as to how many persons and objects are inside the car at any given time. It updates the computer about how much floor space is left, which is much more accurate than weight. An elevator car which is full (e.g. baby strollers), but not necessarily at its full weight capacity, could bypass a floor and the computer could re-direct another car to the waiting floor.
No unnecessary stops will be made and overcrowded uncomfortable cars will be a thing of the past. The same applies for the user experience in the lobby. No cars will stop that are already full or overcrowded. Every car that stops can be used.
Sencorfloors allow computers to decide on the most efficient strategy. It not only enhances the user experience which is measured in waiting time both inside and outside the elevator car but also reduces energy use and maintenance costs.
If installed in lift lobbies, a Sencorfloors can provide a computer with input it never had before. Not only will it understand, in real time, what is happening inside the car but also what to expect on which floor and adjust its strategy accordingly.
Both real time inputs combined allows the computer to direct the cars in an even faster and more efficient way, saving more energy and increasing the user experience even further. It will also allow a computer to even better keep track of how many people come in and go out of an elevator car at a every floor and as such have a real time understanding of how many people are present at each floor. Information that is useful in case of an emergency.
