The system uses CCTV cameras linked to a Video Turnstile people counter which accurately detects and records entries, exits and waiting times. Video analytics data is regularly sent back to a central database. During setup you can watch the video and see exactly what the system is counting thus verifying the counts. You can also securely log on and remotely control and configure the units from any internet-enabled computer.

Our passenger counting systems are currently providing key data in the UK, Europe and Singapore.

Counting People around Stations

As well as counting passengers as they get on and off buses and trains, the counting system can also monitor passenger flow around stations and show current occupancies. Queues can be monitored - showing the number of people currently waiting and the average queuing time for example. The system will show hotspot maps of activity: know exactly how long and where people pause. See which entrances and areas have the most traffic, and at which times of day. And, for retailers on the station, count footfall both going past and into each retail unit.

Smart Cities

Automated passenger counting is being used by smart cities as part of their big data analytics. Combining passenger counts with pedestrian flow, vehicle numbers and pollution monitoring.
