Crowd Density Monitoring System
This is a platform in the cloud where crowd monitoring projects can be setup and configured. Camera integrated Raspberry Pi units are used as the built-in camera can be configured through a web portal to take photos periodically. These photos are sent to the server and analyzed for crowd density estimation. The photo and estimated crowd density index are served to users through the Android mobile app. The platform is designed to be extensible. More sensors can be added to the Raspberry pi module to collect more data to aid analysis.
This technology uses image analysis to detect the crowd level. Data analytics gives new insights to crowd behavior with the potential to improve retail sales, advertising, event management and crowd control. The analysis can be done on a server or be shifted to an embedded module client to lighten processing load on the server. The embedded client is flexible and customizable for different application requirements.
