Set-up Traffic Counting
How to succeed in traffic counting including the classification of vehicles according to our Classes/Subclasses on dedicated urban & highway streets
You want to know the traffic situation of an urban street or highway? SWARM software is providing the solution to get the number of vehicles passing at the street split per vehicle type (Classes) and direction.
For this use case, SWARM software is providing you with any data needed for traffic counting - The counts of vehicles including classification can be covered. The counts are split between two directions (IN/OUT). Furthermore, several counts can be made in one video camera, e.g.: count each lane separately. On top, you have the opportunity to add a second counting line, calibrate the distance in between and estimate the speed of the vehicles passing both lines.
How to configure?
How to get the data?
For receiving the best accuracy of the counting including the classification, the Counting Line should be placed approx. in the middle of the video frame so that vehicles from both directions are seen long enough for good detection and classification.
You can choose the direction IN/OUT as you want in order to retrieve the data as needed. On top, you have the option to give a custom direction name for the IN and OUT directions.
In our Traffic Scenario section, you can find more details about the possible Widgets to be created in the Traffic Scenario Dashboards.
