Bus Passenger Count Sensor PASSENGER COUNTER

A compact PASSENGER COUNTER sensor provides high counting performance based on image processing methods used for our people counting sensors.

Horizontal beam sensor system is generally used to count bus passengers, it often misses overlapping passengers or counts luggage or other such objects. Also, the increase of low-floor buses has resulted in many passengers standing beside the door, which in turn increases counting errors.

The PASSENGER COUNTER Bus Passenger Count Sensor is designed to solve such problems and performs highly accurate and reliable counting.
The sensor, a monocular camera, is compact enough to be installed with limited space. In addition, our original image processing technology is able to eliminate the impact of changes in brightness and enables stable and accurate counting of individuals even inside the bus. In addition, the sensor is resistant to environmental stress such as vibrations and power supply variations.

System Configuration

The bus controller and on-board device are connected and the passenger count is recorded in the on-board device.



Counts passengers getting both on and off

Because the front door and back door sensors count people getting on and off respectively, it is possible to count passengers simultaneously when they all get on and off at once.

Counts two passengers at once

A single sensor is able to function properly even if a wide door allows two passengers to get on/off at the same time.

Stable accuracy more than 95%

Accuracy is based on average accuracy of an actual vehicle count (in our recommended environment).
*Note: Accuracy may vary depending on the installed environment and boarding/alighting conditions.

Outputs live images

The camera's video output function allows viewing of the conditions near the middle door (back door), which is difficult to see, and also records the images in the video event data recorder.


Recognition and Counting


Sensor Installation



What purpose does the sensor serve?

The sensor is designed to count the number of bus passengers getting on or off.
All passengers are counted regardless of their payment method (cash, pass, welfare ticket, or discount ticket).

How is it used?

The sensor can be used to get information on the usage status and crowding of bus passengers.
Take advantage of the sensor's abilities to create an optimum time table by knowing the number of passengers getting on or off at a particular stop, at what times, on which lines, and in which zones.

What type of sensor is it?

The sensor (camera) is installed in the bus ceiling near an entrance and exit.
It is compact and easy to install.
A single sensor can count people getting both on and off.

How is the performance and accuracy?

Counting is possible even in crowds of people or during the night. (Highly sensitive CCD camera adopted)
A single sensor can function properly even if the door is wide.
Passengers getting on and off are counted respectively even when passing each other at the door.

How is the count sensor configured?

The configuration is simple with two sensors and one bus controller.

Is it necessary for drivers to operate the count sensor?

The count sensor starts working simply by turning it on.
Because no special procedures or settings are required, there is no burden put on the driver.
