People Tracking and People Counting
The People Counting and Tracking AI video analytics can count people and track people within a defined zone or region of interest. The first step is to define the region of interest. Thereafter, any person within the region of interest will be detected, given a unique ID, counted and then tracked. Any person entering the zone will also be treated similarly. When a person leaves the region of interest, that person will not be counted or tracked.
Two main technologies are used: object detection and object tracking. For object detection, pictures of people are used to train the deep neural network model. Thereafter, single shot detection algorithm is used to detect people. After detection, people tracking algorithm is used to track. It is based on the co-ordinates of each person in each frame in the video. By following the co-ordinate of each person (with and ID), tracking is achieved.
