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

A brief description of the technology used:

Sargent College has an occupancy sensor that turns its vending machine on when approached.

Vending misers were installed on vending machines across campus and used for over a year. Problems with the debit card readers (the primary point of transaction) caused the program to be terminated, replaced with EnergyStar units across campus.
