Xetal is innovating the way building adapt to people needs. Xetal have developed kinsei: an innovative indoor people localisation technology that does not require a person wearing or carrying any type of device or phone. Kinsei relies on proprietary positioning sensors placed on walls, beds or door frames to detect and track of one or more people with an accuracy of about 30cm. When such an accurate position information is used together with knowledge about the room itself, it is possible to understand what is happening in the room, what people are doing and determine what is likely to happen next. kinsei does not use cameras, audio or any other identification technology making it the perfect technology for when respect for personal privacy is a must. Such a solution address the need in the healthcare and security market to monitor people activity in real time and in a non-intrusive manner. Furthermore, it pens up possibilities for home automation application previously limited by the poor performance of movement based detections or privacy-invasive cameras.
