In this paper a novel application of inductive proximity sensors for detection of living tissue by means of measurements of the coil impedance changes at different frequencies is described. The mathematical analyses utilizing Bessel function estimation include detected object size and its distance from a sensor. The main aim of this study is to prove the possibility of distinguishing between metal objects and living tissues. The movement of an object can be also detected, assuming it is in a distance comparable with a size of the induction sensor.
