Please check below short video for our HPC168 3D automatic passenger counter camera for bus.


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 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.

Main Functions of HPC168 3D Automatic Passenger Counter Camera for Bus

  • Built-in image anti-shake algorithm, strong environment adaptability;
  • Algorithm correction function, adaptive lens angle, focus information, allowing a certain angle tilt with the horizontal direction;
  • Counting accuracy is not affected by passenger body form, clothing color, hair color, hat and scarf, etc.
  • Counting accuracy is not affected by passengers passing side by side, crossing passing, and blocking traffic;
  • Height limit can be set on target, passenger baggage error can be filtered;
  • With the status of the bus door switch as the trigger condition, it starts counting when door is opened, captures real time statistical data, and stops counting when door is closed;
  • Possess strong scalability and portability, can be installed according to the number of vehicle doors;
  • Unaffected by the season and weather, unaffected by figure shadows or shades, unaffected by external light, automatically activates infrared fill-in light at night to have the same recognition accuracy;
  • Easy to install, support 180°installation, strong environment adaptability.


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.

3. Cost reduction. If a bus has only one door, our cost is much lower than a processor plus camera from other companies

4. 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.

FAQ for HPC168 bus passenger counter:

Can the equipment (bus passenger counter device) work normally at night?
There are infrared fill lights, which will automatically turn on when the light is dark, so it can work normally at night.

What is the installation height of the bus passenger counter device?
The installation height of the standard version is 190-220cm. If the installation height is very low, we can also customize the ultra-low door scheme for you.

What door width does the bus passenger counting system support?
The door width is within 120cm. Only one device is needed for one door.

What is the accuracy of the equipment?
The accuracy rate of the bus passenger counting system under the factory environment test and feedback from customer can get 95%. The actual accuracy rate is related to the actual installation environment, installation method, passenger flow and other factors.

Can we integrate HPC168 bus passenger counter with our system?
Yes, of course. We provide free integration protocol based on RJ45 and RS485 interface. Acturally, this is what most customers prefer to and did. 

Can it count people wearing hijabs?
Yes, there is no problem. Passengers wearing headscarves can be identified normally, The counting accuracy is not affected by the passenger's body shape, clothes color, hair color, hats and scarves, etc.
