The Role of People Counters in Smart Building Management
At IMBuildings, we recently had the privilege of attending The Things Conference. A gathering of professionals from the Smart Buildings industry. The insights we gained from this event were truly eye- opening. Among the many innovative technologies discussed, one key takeaway stood out – the essential role of People Counters in smart building management.
Working with People Counter data
To optimize the use of People Counting we would like to share some information about the various ways you can work with people counter data. In general you would like to add some logic on People Counter data before displaying it or using it for further intelligence. This logic already starts the moment data is received.
General information about line crossing based People Counting
Line crossing based people counting means as much as counting how many people are crossing a line. Such a particular countline can be defined by software in (passive) camera based solutions or by an active signal beam from a device.
General information about occupancy
To determine how many people are within a given area, multiple solutions are possible. The most effective one is to count how many people are entering and leaving the area. By calculating the difference between the ingoing and outgoing count values you can determine the occupancy.
