Advantages for bus passenger counting system:

HPC168 3D Automated Passenger Counting Camera for Bus adopts the latest generation of Huawei chip, which is with high calculation accuracy, small error and fast calculation speed. All hardware including processor and 3D camera are unified together.


Automated Passenger Counting Camera


Bus passenger counter has the following advantages:


1. All-in-one system, easy to install, plug and play, no need for many connections.fully considering the convenience of the installer, we designed the Passenger counter as an all in 1 system, the whole set of equipment has only one hardware part, and the installation is very convenient. However, other companies use a sensor plus a processor, plus other modules, and a lot of connecting lines between them are needed, and the installation is very cumbersome.


2. Higher calculation accuracy and faster speed, especially for multiple doors on a bus. Because the bus passenger counter is one door, one processor, the calculation speed is 2-3 times, the latest chip, the speed will be better. The calculation speed is fast, whether installing a passenger counter on one door or installing multiple passenger counters on multiple doors, since each of our passenger counters has a built-in processor, it is equivalent to several brains performing independent calculations at the same time, In this way, our calculation speed is 2-3 times faster than other companies' Passenger counter calculation speed. In addition, we use the latest chips, and the speed will be far better than that of the other competitors. Generally speaking, the number of vehicles in the bus system is hundreds or even thousands of vehicles, the calculation speed of the passenger counter will become a very critical factor for the normal operation of the entire system.


3. Reduce costs.The price of our Automated Passenger Counting Camera is lower. If a bus only installs a passenger counter on one door, the cost of our all in 1 system passenger counter will be far lower than that of other companies, because the passenger counter system of other companies need a sensor plus an expensive Processor and then a lot of wires.


4. The ABS shell greatly reduces the weight and greatly saves the international freight. Our Automated Passenger Counting Camera is made of ABS plastic shell, and the Processor is also integrated in the shell, so the total weight is very light, our weight is only one-fifth or even less than other passenger counters on the market, in this case, your Shipping costs will save a lot especially by air. While the sensor of other companies uses a heavy metal casing, the Processor also uses a heavy metal casing. The combination of the two will make the whole equipment heavier, which will lead to very expensive air freight, which will directly lead to the customer's purchase cost, the cost is greatly increased, and the sharp edges and corners of the metal shell will also pose a potential threat to passengers.

5.The shell of the HPC168 Passenger counter is made of high-strength ABS. First, the car can be used normally in the vibration and bumpy environment during driving. Secondly, the shell adopts an integrated design. The bracket used for fixing is uniquely designed. The bus passenger counter supports 180-degree rotating installation and adopts high-strength ABS to meet the needs of vibration environment.


6. The arc-shaped design can effectively avoid the injury caused by the collision of passengers; In addition, the hidden terminal installation is beautiful and durable, and at the same time, it greatly saves labor.

7. self-owned factory makes sure the high quality and fast delivery. The price of our passenger counter is lower. If a bus only installs a passenger counter on one door, the cost of our all in 1 system passenger counter will be far lower than that of other companies, because the passenger counter system of other companies need a sensor plus an expensive Processor and then a lot of wires.



8. Passenger counting camera has a built-in dedicated video hardware acceleration engine, high-performance communication media processor, adopts a self-developed dual-camera 3D depth algorithm model, and dynamically detects the cross-section, height, and movement trajectory of passengers to obtain high-precision real-time passenger flow quantitative data.


9. 3D Automatic Passenger Counting Camera is not affected by seasons and weather, people's shadows or shadows, and external light. It automatically activates infrared supplementary light at night and has the same recognition accuracy. Therefore, it can be installed outdoors or outside the car. Provide more options for actual needs, if you need to install it outdoors, you need to add a waterproof cover.


10. The door opening and closing status of the Bus is the condition to trigger the passenger counting camera to count. When the door is opened, it will start counting, and the data will be counted in real time. When the door is closed, it will stop counting.


11. The accuracy of our passenger counting is not affected by passenger height, clothing color, hair color, hat scarf, etc.; it is also not affected by passengers passing side by side, crossing traffic, blocking traffic; it will not repeatedly count objects such as suitcases, and at the same time The height of the detected target can be limited by software, and the specific data of the desired height can be filtered and extracted.


12. Our Passenger counting camera has a unique one-click adjustment function, which provides the installer with a convenient debugging method of one-click calibration. After installation, the installer only needs to click a button, Automated Passenger Counting Camera will automatically adjust parameters according to the specific height and actual installation environment which saves a lot of installation and debugging time for the installer.

HPC168 3D automated passenger counting camera for bus is widely applied in buses, coaches, metros and other public transportation tool passenger automatic counter application field. It possesses high-performance communication media processor with Hisilicon video purpose hardware acceleration engine. Adopted with main development dual-camera depth algorithm model, it conducts dynamic detection on cross-section, height and movement trajectory of the passenger target, and in turn, obtains comparatively high-precision real-time passenger flow data, providing RJ45 or RS485 interface to conduct data interaction and sharing with third-party equipment, which is very convenient for data depth development.


HPC168 counter depth camera can be adjusted from 0-180 degrees, to meet all passenger car environment installation requirements. The built-in wiring method enables perfect integration of HPC168 counter and passenger car environment.


HPC168 counter adopts integrated design which combines depth camera and calculation main control board, so as to minimize interference factors on camera image information to the lowest level, and possibly to the uttermost decrease construction wiring difficulty level. The one-button debugging mode can quickly complete environmental parameters collection required by HPC168 counter, with no assistance from other equipment terminals.


HPC168 counter provides rich data interface:
1. RJ45 network interface
Via RJ45 interface and HPC168 counter connection, client tool program views or sets working status and operates parameters. At the same time, HPC168 counter submits passenger flow data to the designated server in real time through RJ45 network interface.

2. Composite video output interface
Can be connected with vehicle-mounted display to visually display passenger counting results. Can also be connected with vehicle-mounted video recorder to save the passengers dynamic video of getting-on and getting-off in real time.

3. RS485 interface or RS232 interface
Provides one-way RS485 or RS232 for third-party equipment to conduct data calls, customizes baud rate and communication ID code.

4. Vehicle door switch signal
Can receive 8-36V voltage range vehicle door switch signal input. HPC168 counter stops counting once vehicle door is closed, and automatically starts counting when vehicle door is opened.
