Has the institution installed vending machine motion sensors for at least one vending machine?:
Yes

A brief description of the technology used:

The vending machines contain a motion sensor which allows the machine to switch into the energy conserving sleep mode if nobody is around. The machines also contain a sensor that electronically notifies the supplier when the product supply is low. This prevents the vendor from needing to drive to the site to manually check the supply, thus reducing fossil fuel combustion.


The website URL where information about the institution's use of the technology is available:

Approximately 50% of the vending machines on campus use this technology.
