Advantages for bus passenger counting system:

HPC168 3D Automated Passenger Counting Camera for Bus adopts the latest generation of Huawei chip (2020.12), which is with high calculation accuracy, small error and fast calculation speed. All hardware including processor and 3D camera are unified together.

Bus passenger counter has the following advantages:

1. All-in-one system, easy to install, plug and play, no need for many connections.

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.

3. Reduce costs.

4. The ABS shell greatly reduces the weight and greatly saves the international freight.

5. 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.


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 RS45 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.

FAQ for 3D Automated Bus Camera Passenger Counting System:

 1.Can this bus passenger counter display real-time data?

Yes, the camera passenger counting system has a video output function, which can be connected to a display device to display real-time video images.

The below picture shows that bus passenger counter is connected with DVR system

2. How to check the data of the bus passenger counter with the camera?

The following four ways:

a. SD module. The data is stored in the SD card. Take out the SD card and use a card reader to connect to the computer to browse the recording files in the SD card.

b. Directly connect with the customer's display device to display the video image and the information of the number of people in and out in real time.

c. Integrate the bus passenger transport counter with the customer's GPRS and other systems, and view the data directly on the customer's software platform. We support RJ45 or RS485 interface and API.

d. Can support customized software according to your requirements. Please specify your requirements.
