HPC168 Binocular Camera bus passenger counting system

HPC168 3D automatic passenger counter 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.

Compare Our HPC168 3D Automatic Passenger Counter Camera for Bus with Others

HPC168 bus passenger counter adopts the latest generation of Huawei chip (2020.12), which has high calculation accuracy, small error and fast calculation speed. All hardware including processor and 3D camera are unified together, and it has the following advantages:


1. Because it is an all in 1 system, it is easy to install, plug and play, and does not require many connections. Other companies use a processor plus a camera, and a lot of cables are needed for installation.


2. The calculation accuracy is high and the speed is fast. Especially when there are multiple doors in one bus, because HPC168 is one door and one processor, the calculation speed is 2-3 times the data processing speed of other passenger counters, plus the latest chip, the speed will be even better.

Generally speaking, the number of vehicles in the bus system is hundreds or even thousands of vehicles, the calculation speed of the passenger counting camera will become a very critical factor for the normal operation of the entire system.


3. Cost reduction. If a bus has only one door, our cost is much lower than a processor plus camera from other companies. because the passenger counter system of other companies need a sensor plus an expensive Processor and then a lot of wires.


4. Our 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 counting cameras on the market, in this case.The ABS shell greatly saves the international freight cost. Most of the other counterparts use industrial metal casings, which are very heavy and air freight is very expensive.


5. The one-piece design of the housing, the perfect combination of the mounting bracket and the camera, supports 180-degree rotation installation, and uses high-strength ABS to meet the use of vibration environments.


6. The arc shape design can effectively avoid the collision of passengers to cause injury; in addition, the terminal is hidden and installed, which is beautiful and durable, while greatly saving labor.

7. In order to prevent the People counting from colliding with the passenger’s head during driving, the shell of our passenger counting camera is made of ABS plastic, and the appearance adopts a circular arc design. At the same time, all the connecting lines are concealed. No connection can be seen from the outside. It is beautiful and durable while avoiding unnecessary disputes with passengers. 


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 3D Automatic Passenger Counting Camera 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, 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.
