Thermal infrared camera in malls detecting body temperatures to figure out how much air conditioned is needed and study shopping behaviours
The idea is to install fisheye thermal infrared cameras in malls (or airports...) that, by detecting people's body temperatures, could provide information about:
1) the exact air conditioner that is needed, hence allowing for an optimized energy waste and a lower energy bill
2) the number of adults and children in the mall and their preferred paths and shops... This could be useful to optimize the mall space as a whole and to provide relevant market info to the stores.
We thought about main malls implementing this system and offering such information to its stores, in exchange for an increased rent.
What do you think of this idea? Please help us!
