An Indoor Human/Robot Monitoring system with PIR Sensory Fusion using wireless communication used in homes, offices and indoor environments. The pyro electric IR (PIR) system provides less information about human location by means of target motion. Along with PIR, we used RFID is used for wireless communication. In this study, we propose an PIR sensory fusion system and indoor human/robot monitoring based on a wireless communication. We develop a sensor-network based wireless communication with PIR. This system determines both PIR and RF localization positions. We have developed and experimentally proved a PIR sensory fusion system, which can be successfully given results and working. The people can flexibly moved with robots. Robot gave efficient work.
