People Entry/Exit counting
How to success in setting up counting for people entering and exiting a dedicated area
You want to know how SWARM software is providing the solution to get the number of People either entering or leaving your configured area via a Virtual Door in different sceneries. SWARM software is providing the solution to get the number of People either entering or leaving your configured area via a Virtual Door in different sceneries.
For this use case, SWARM software is providing you with the counts of people split by direction (IN/OUT). On top, several counts can be made in one camera, e.g.: count each door separately.
How to configure?
How to get the data?
For receiving the best accuracy of the Virtual Door, the Virtual Door should be placed approx in the middle of the video frame and not too close to the camera so that people will be detected before their center point is already in the perspective of the Virtual Door.
The direction IN/OUT can not be chosen. If a person is detected outside the VD and disappears inside the VD, it will be direction IN.
In our Generic Scenario section, you can find more details about the possible metrics to use for creating your Generic Scenario Dashboards.
As people counting is based on a Virtual Door, you need to choose the Metrics "VD count" or "VD IN/OUT Difference". You have then the different options to choose the data you want for a certain time period as well as choosing the output format (e.g.: bar chart, number, table, ...).
If you need your data for further local analysis, you have the option to export the data of any created widget as csv file for further processing in Excel.
