PCN-1001 is able to count passengers entering or leaving busses, trams or trains with high accuracy. It also has the capability to record time and date information, which allows users to make varied statistical analyses at a later time.
The Passenger Counter can be interfaced with Eurotech's mobile computing systems to create a complete intelligent and fully customizable network with advanced surveillance, communication and infotainment capabilities.
The device is specifically designed to be used in mobile environments. Thanks to its shape with a front mask that allows it to be mounted in an embedded position under doorways, it becomes almost invisible.
The optical panel can also be angled to allow for mounting on positions that are uneven or not directly above the intended detection area.
The Passenger Counter is an autonomous device with two stereoscopic cameras, which capture images of the area below the device. Using this information it then analyzes the height, shape and direction of any object within the detection area.
The PCN-1001 comes with four integrated high luminosity infrared LEDs, which enable the system to operate in any kind of lighting condition, even in complete darkness.
Multiple Counters Configuration
Thanks to the circular automotive connectors, it is possible to network PCN-1001 units together; this allows users to monitor all the doors within a vehicle in real time.
If the width of a doorway is greater than 120 cm, two or more counters can be interfaced together. In this configuration, the first unit recognizes the presence of the others and manages any overlapping areas within the effective detection zone, which ensures that passenger movements are correctly analyzed.
In all configurations, an RS-485 serial communications bus is used to interface the PCN-1001 units to the host PC of the vehicle.
Isolated digital inputs and outputs can be used to control devices within the vehicle, which helps to guarantee correct functionality at all times. For example the unit stops counting when the doors of the vehicle are closed.
