Stereoscopic cameras capture images of the area below the device that are analyzed in real time using by a sophisticated algorithm. The Passenger Counter algorithm analyses the height, shape and direction of any objects that are passing the field of view; if it is determined that the object is a person entering or leaving, the incoming and outgoing counters are incremented accordingly, along with time information. Thanks to the integrated high luminosity infrared LED system it can operate in any type of lighting condition.
Tested against extended temperatures and severe vibration levels, the DynaPCN 10-20 grants integrators the possibility to deploy the system in a wide range of harsh conditions typically encountered in transportation applications.
The Passenger Counter can be easily flush mounted in the ceiling space above a doorway. The angle of the optical panel can be adjusted; therefore, it can be placed in different positions and on non-horizontal surfaces.
Featuring Ethernet connectivity, the DynaPCN 10-20 can be easily and quickly integrated with an on-board unit that is already available. Eurotech M2M gateways provide full software support for integrating the DynaPCN 10-20 through Eurotech’s Everyware Software Framework (ESF).
The DynaPCN 10-20 features digital I/O interfaces that are used to directly communicate with intelligent doors or flow control systems, guaranteeing the best counting performance.
