How to Avoid Including Pedestrians in your Counter Mode Results

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
