PIR, Passive Infared Detector. Human body has a constant temperature and emits infrared at certain wave length. PIR senses the human body by monitoring this particular infrared ray. The technology is simple and practical, and undisturbed by temperature and light. So that it is widely used in automatic switches.
Combining with other modules, PIR Sensor Card can apply the interactive mode of human body sensing into various creative ideas. For example, when pedestrians approach, the sad face on the display screen turns into a smiling one, or when people approach, atmosphere music of the space rings.
PIR Sensor Card allows you to sense the motion of any object in its range. The sensor integrates an ADC converter (Analog-to-Digital Converter) and outputs HIGH, when anyone moves in its detecting range. It features S16-L221D 6-pin SMD pyroelectric infrared sensor which measures only 3.6×3.6mm.
Longan Cards is a unique open source development platform designed by Longan Labs. As a plug and play development platform, Longan Cards allows you to quicky build wide array of prototypes and applications in no time. A full set of Arduino libraries and plenty of example codes are available to play with Longan Cards platform.

↑ Longan Cards system consists of Cards and Boards. There are many gold finger antennas on Card and several gold finger sockets on Board. They are combined together through sockets interpolation, which is intuitive and easy to use. With this unified and flexible interface, you can realize a variety of ideas. Many more Boards with different themes would luanch to help people explore more fun.
↑ Longan Cards modules are classified into many types. Firstly, the main control cards which are the heart of Cards system, run the code and take charge of the exchange of data between modules. Besides Carduino, you can also use MicroBit, Arduino and other development board through connection board. The sensor cards can detect data of surrounding such as temperature and air pressure, etc. The inputs cards allows you to do some operations, such as buttons, knobs, etc. The output cards give feedback in various forms, such as buzzers, motor drives, etc. The communication cards can transmit data in many ways, such as Bluetooth and 4G network. The power cards supply power for electronic projects, including batteries, DC, etc. And other cards, mainly do some auxiliary work, such as expansion, code downloading, etc.
↑ STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math. STEM education began in the United States in the 1990s. It is an interdisciplinary teaching method that combines STEM content and real life situations, which helps stimulate students’ original curiosity and thirst for knowledge and novelty. Longan Cards contains dozens of modules, involving a wide range of knowledge in the process of use, including electronic circuit, mechanical structurenature, programming, science of nature, daily wisdom, and humanities, etc. It is a powerful tool for STEM education at fields of electronic prototyping, science experimentation and DIY project.
