Time-of-Flight sensor is used for crowd flow monitoring in public transportation

Time-of-Flight sensor can be used for crowd flow monitoring in public transportation by providing real-time depth information of the people in its field of view. The Time-of-Flight sensor uses a light source to emit a pulse of light and measures the time it takes for the light to reflect off the people and return to the camera. This information can then be used to generate a depth map of the scene, which can be used to estimate the number of people, their direction of movement, and their speed.

By placing Time-of-Flight sensor in a strategic location within a transportation hub or vehicle, operators can monitor the flow of people and optimize the operation of the system. For example, if the Time-of-Flight sensor detects a large number of people moving in one direction, transportation operators can adjust the frequency of vehicles or add more staff to that area to better accommodate the crowd.

Furthermore, Time-of-Flight sensor are non-invasive and can be used without capturing personal identifying information, providing a privacy-friendly way to monitor crowd flow.DOMI has a variety of sensors for public transportation crowd flow monitoring, please consult Email: domi@domisensor.com
