At the end of last year, we introduced vehicle tracking. In Map view with Smart Presence™, our capability powered by computer vision, it identifies and highlights vehicles, in addition to people.
With people and vehicle counting, we can count both the number of live objects currently in view and the number of objects crossing a line over time. For the latter, we separate count crossings in both directions as well as the difference between them. These counts can be done on a single camera, or across multiple cameras covering a larger area.
Imagine the managers of an office building wanting to get better visibility of day-to-day operations. With people counting covering all entrances, they can immediately determine the number of people inside the building and easily optimize cleaning, heating, and cooling systems.
In stores and public venues, managers can discover the footfall traffic flow at any given time. They can get instant notifications when queues are detected to allocate staff according to the busiest business hours. Additionally, they can use counting to find out which locations perform the best and why.
Warehouse operators or parking garage operation managers can also use vehicle counting to investigate the flow of trucks and other vehicles in the busiest hours.
We’ve also made it possible to download and share historical data, allowing flexible selection of the start and end date and time intervals to facilitate advanced analysis.
