The Counter Mode of the countCAM3+ uses computer vision to track and count vehicles as they pass the countCAM3+'s view. This counting will be impacted by pedestrians though the following steps can be used to minimize pedestrian impacts:
- Use Counter Mode at locations where low pedestrian traffic is expected. Under these situations pedestrian volume will not be high enough to impact the count.
- Avoid setting Counter Mode at locations where pedestrians pass in front of the countCAM3+ in close proximity to the device. Under this situation the pedestrian will appear larger and quickly pass the device's view which may cause a false positive vehicle count. Pedestrians on the far side of the roadway will have less impact on the count as their speed and size will notify the countCAM3+ they are not a vehicle and they will be omitted from the count.
