I intend to ask a broad and general question about how to detect presence and position of humans in an indoor environment (my home). I want to know (1) weather there is anyone in the house and (2) in which rooms there are humans.

This fits Home Improvement, Electrical engineering, this site (DSP.SE) and probably others (SE-s are popping up like mushrooms lately).

On witch site, if any, is this question appropriate?

Maybe related: Snore detector

Even in the last case, you will have to show what you've tried, where you're getting stuck, what algorithm you're trying to improve, etc. Do not use this site as a proxy for "Teach me how to build my own detection system".

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, I guess I really need to break it up and form concrete questions. Those inter-disciplinary questions really puzzle me as to where should I ask them. $\endgroup$
