Interference can occur if the SR300 is capturing infrared patterns projected from multiple infrared projectors simultaneously.  Low interference assumes a user is in front of each SR300 and comfortably spaced apart.PR interference.png

Review of Turnstile Setup Operations

  • A: Door Setup (@ 59")
    • Good depth range from 47" to 71"
    • Requires high mounting height
  • B: Turnstile Setup (@ 41", 0.9m range)
    • Good depth range from 47" to ~65"
    • Does not work well for taller that ~65"
    • Requires tall people to lean over the PR (need to tile head 60+ degree down)
    • Leaning over th PR can cause hair to cover the face
    • Recommendation: Not feasible as a product
  • C: Turnstile Setup (@41", 1.2m range)
    • Good depth range from 47" to ~71"
    • High risk of accidental recongition (ID A, grand access to B)
    • Requires tall people to lean over the PR (need to tild hear 50+ degrees down)
