Safe facility management through person detection

July 2011 Sensors & Transducers

For reasons of security and economic planning, recording the numbers and frequencies of people already takes place in many public areas. How many persons are in an airport, mine or train station? How is the flow of soccer fans in the stadium shaping up? What is the ratio between the number of persons in shopping malls and the number of purchase transactions? To answer these questions, SICK’s innovative TVS100 3D ‘people counter’ supplies the necessary data. Whether children or adults, single persons or groups – the non-contact measuring system provides important data for, among other things, facility utilisation of safety technology.

The detection of persons takes place using a camera system measuring in 3D using an infrared LED light source. By means of detection from above and internal image processing, the TVS100 can detect and count several persons simultaneously (max 80 per second), walking beside or behind each other and in different directions. Because of its measuring technique, the system offers better accuracy than conventional counting solutions and is absolutely ideal for use in shopping malls, stores and other urban areas of interest.

The maintenance-free TVS100 poses nearly no limitations on installation as the system can be mounted beyond path and walkways to protect against damage or manipulation. Convenient downstream evaluation of measured results elucidates.
