How the people counting system works.
Our people counting system called Quantium, designed and built in France, is both robust and discreet. The 3D video-sensors are fixed at the site entrances and exits and count the people passing in both directions, scrupulously respecting all the necessary regulations concerning personal data protection. The sensors are connected through Ethernet cables, and can transmit data concerning entrances and exits, and thus instantaneous presence, all in real time.
Compared with manual counting, electronic counting with instruments such as our connected cameras is of extreme accuracy, especially in crowded areas. The sensor identifies people as they enter the field of vision and renders the count anonymous using a yellow square covering the person’s face. It is only when people have passed completely through the Quantium’s counting zone that they are accounted for. The anonymity square changes to green if the person is detected as arriving and to red if detected as leaving.
The counting systems are interconnected and contain an algorithm which enables several counters surveying the same counting zone not to double count the visitors. This feature of the product is the latest one perfected by our R&D department, and has been subjected to tests by the independent Bureau Veritas Company.
Validating the counting accuracy of people counting systems
The counting tests take place in our facility in Honfleur, France. In total, more than 2,000 passages are carried out and more than 20 counting scenarios explored. A manual control count is also carried out by the Bureau Veritas Company. These test results validate the Quantium V3 counting system’s accuracy at greater than 99%.
