I want to use a sensor to detect the temperature of a person. I have this sensor which is used for Arduino and I'm wondering if it can be used on the Raspberry Pi 4. Otherwise, what other choices do I have to accurately measure human temperature?

  • Ah, anything Anono can do, Rpi can do better. GY906 IR actually is not only for Anono, but for everybody: You might like to check if yours is similar to this one, or let me know the link so I can have a look..aliexpress.com/item/…. Cheers. – tlfong01 Aug 31 '20 at 6:15

    I'm using this one: aliexpress.com/item/… – YJJcoolcool Aug 31 '20 at 6:26
  • Oh my goodness. I have never seen this long distance GY906. I have a couple of IR temp sensor but all cheap things. Your high class thing is 10 times more expensive than mine. I once looked for this for covid app. Let me have a quick google and come back to you later. – tlfong01 Aug 31 '20 at 6:39
  • I am back. I quickly googled that it is using the following: MLX90614 I2C 17 bit ADC family / Single and Dual Zone Infra Red Thermometer in TO-39 Datasheet - Melexis datasheet.octopart.com/…. I skimmed the data sheet and found that it is using a small subset of standard SMBus commands. If you already know that Anono can do it, Rpi can do it better, with 90% certainty. But I am just a poor friendly hobbyist. I have never played this high class thing before. No guarantee no nothing won't melt down or blow up. Good luck and cheers. – tlfong01 Aug 31 '20 at 6:51
