I want to make a circuit that recognizes the presence of an object and that measures the temperature of the object.
For recognizing the presence I found that I can use an infrared sensor like: TCRT5000
And for measuring the temperature I can use infrared sensor: MLX90614
But these are both infrared sensors. So do you guys know if I can do both functions with 1 sensor? Can I use the MLX90614 for instance also to detect an object in front of it?
Thanks in advance,
