  1. 1. Irisys People Counter Training - IP Last Updated: 11th May 2012
  2. 2. How the People Counter Works The counter looks down on the area where people are to be counted. As people walk underneath the counter they are detected and tracked.
  3. 3. How the People Counter Works The counters field of view is, effectively, a square on the ground. Think of it as a three dimensional pyramid stretching from the ceiling to the floor.
  4. 4. How the People Counter Works As people walk underneath the counter, their body heat is detected as infrared radiation. Once detected the source of infrared is tracked around the field of view and is counted if it crosses either of the two (by default) virtual count lines (configured at time of install).
  5. 5. Dual View Counter The dual view counter model provides an additional video view alongside the thermal view. This allows for: • • Remote setup and diagnostics Counter performance monitoring and validation services
  6. 6. How the People Counter Works Multiple counters can be connected together, if required, in order to count through a very wide entrance: • One IP master can be installed with up to seven node units, to form a ‘Wide Opening Network’ of 8 Units. • One IP dual view master can be installed with two node units, to form a ‘Wide Opening Network’ of 3 Units.
  7. 7. Counter Ceiling Positioning
  8. 8. Mounting Locations Things to look for: • The counter should be positioned above where people walk and away from areas where people queue or stop 20° Outdoor • The counter needs a clear view of the area Version Only beneath so position away from obstacles and signage hanging underneath • Three lens versions of the counter are available dependant on ceiling/mounting height 60° 40°
  9. 9. Single Counter Installation
  10. 10. Mounting Locations For most standard double door entrances, a single unit will usually be enough. Front View A single counter should be positioned centrally to the door, so that the field of view extends to the left and right side of the door.
  11. 11. Mounting Locations To confirm that a single unit is enough, measure the height of the ceiling and width of the door. W H Front View And look up the information on the mounting height graph (Irisys document IPU40188).
  12. 12. Mounting Height Graph (m) The dotted line shows the maximum distance that counters can be mounted to ensure the minimum amount of overlap: 60° Lens 4.8m 7.5m 4.5m 7.0m 20° Lens Outdoor only 40° Lens 2.5m 2.2m 8.0m 4.0m 3.5m 7.0m 15.5m 14.5m
  13. 13. Mounting Height Graph (inches) Use the ceiling height to find the width of the field of view for a single unit, and compare that to the width of the door: 189” 60° Lens 295” 177” 275” 610” 20° Lens Outdoor only 40° Lens 98” 87” 315” 157” 138” 275” 571”
  14. 14. Mounting Locations If security barriers are in the field of view of the counter, at height H, the field of view should exceed the width of the barriers slightly: H Front View
  15. 15. Mounting Locations If no security barriers, then the counters field of view, at height H, should exceed the width of the door plus ½m each side (ideally): ½m H ½m Front View
  16. 16. Mounting Locations - Examples Do Not Position Counter Too far away from the Door as people could be missed if they turn left or right: Overhead View Side View
  17. 17. Mounting Locations - Examples Do not position counter too close to the door as some of the field of view will be blocked and unusable - the counter will also not ‘see’ through the glass: Overhead View Side View
  18. 18. Mounting Locations - Examples In any case, the counter should not be positioned directly above the swing of a door: Overhead View Side View
  19. 19. Mounting Locations - Examples And should not be mounted between the two doors of a double door: Overhead View Side View
  20. 20. Mounting Locations - Examples Instead mount the Counter outside the swing of a door: Overhead View Side View
  21. 21. Mounting Locations - Examples And away from the swing of a double door: Overhead View Side View
  22. 22. Mounting Locations - OPTIMUM The optimum position for the Counter is where the field of view meets the ‘door line’: Overhead View Side View
  23. 23. Mounting Locations - OPTIMUM Optimal position is central to door, approximately half the field of view away from the door: ½ FOV ½ FOV FOV Overhead View Side View
  24. 24. Mounting Locations - Examples But, if the door is fully open and is undercover, e.g. a shop in a mall, the units can be positioned closer to the lease line if required – but do not block out any of the FOV: Overhead View Side View
  25. 25. Mounting Locations - Examples If installing in a ‘corner’ location the field of view can also be maximised by installing away from the side wall: ½ FOV ½ FOV ½ FOV FOV
  26. 26. Mounting Locations - Examples Do not exceed the maximum height of the counter. If required, lower the counter instead. Example: 40° 60° Side View 60°
  27. 27. Mounting Locations - Examples Lowering of the counter will be required if ducting, light fittings etc could block part, or all, of the field of view: Side View
  28. 28. Mounting Locations - Examples Also, do not go below the minimum mounting height: <2.2m (87inches) Side View
  29. 29. Mounting Locations - Examples If possible, recess the counter to increase the height: Min >2.2m (87inches) Recommended >2.5m (98inches) Side View
  30. 30. Mounting Locations - Corridors In Corridor-like locations the counter should be mounted away from areas that might cause people to stop in the middle of the field of view. Avoid: • Chairs, sofas, and other waiting areas • Side doors • Filing cabinets, water-coolers, coffee machines, pay phones, or anywhere that a person could stop Overhead View
  31. 31. Mounting Locations - Elevators For counting at Elevators, correct counter placement on the ceiling is crucial: Elevator Shaft X For 60° units: X = Tan (60 / 2) h h Or X = 0.577 h Elevator Counter should ‘see’ Under the Wall and Through Elevator Doors (when open) Side View
  32. 32. Mounting Locations - Elevators When using 40 degree units at Elevators, correct counter placement on the ceiling is even more critical: X For 40° units: Elevator Shaft X = Tan (40 / 2) h h Or X = 0.364 h Elevator Counter should ‘see’ Under the Wall and Through Elevator Doors (when open) Side View
  33. 33. Mounting Locations - Elevators When counting at Elevators, each separate Elevator should have its own counter, mounted centrally to the door. Do not worry if their field of views overlap: Overhead View
  34. 34. Mounting Locations – Elevators In most cases, counting at the approach to the elevator rather than directly through the elevator doors, will be the preferred method, if possible. This will be more accurate in the majority of cases. E.g.: Side View
  35. 35. Mounting Locations – Elevator Lobbies Counting IN and OUT of an elevator lobby will be more accurate than counting IN and OUT of the elevator: Elevator Elevator Lobby Overhead View Elevator
  36. 36. Mounting Locations – Escalators/Stairs Counting directly over stairs or escalators is not recommended. Instead count at the very top or bottom: Stairs Side View Escalators
  37. 37. Mounting Locations - Stairs Alternatively, count at a ‘landing’ point on stairs, if possible: Side View
  38. 38. Mounting Locations - Escalators Stay clear of the ‘landing zone’ at the top and bottom of escalators: • These can create thermal reflections which can mask genuine targets Side View ‘Landing zone’
  39. 39. Outdoor Installations For outdoor installations - even when undercover – the outdoor variant counter should be used: • • Outdoor counters are designed to resist water penetration from the weather They also have a breather valve in order to prevent damage from condensation build up
  40. 40. Counter Base Installation • Ensure Base is level to the ground - Remember that the ceiling may not be - Pack under the base if required • Pay attention to the orientation of the Base, always point arrow into the store • Secure base to the ceiling using mounting holes provided with appropriate fixings • Once the base is correctly aligned lock in place using this screw position
  41. 41. Cable Connections There are two types of base board: IP Master • IP Connection • Power Connection • Wide Opening Network Connection • Used on every door installation IP Wide Opening • Used in Dual View Counter too Connections Node • Power Connection • Two Wide Opening Network Connections • Must be used in conjunction with an IP master, if required
  42. 42. Cable Connections Outdoor counters have the same connections as the indoor counters. IP Master • IP Connection • Power Connection • Wide Opening Network Connection IP Node • Power Connection • Two Wide Opening Network Connections • Must be used in conjunction with an IP master, if required Wide Opening Connections
  43. 43. Cable Connections For a single counter installation: • IP Master base board is used • Power can be via dedicated power terminal or via power over CAT5 (not PoE) • Counter must be grounded 12 – 28V Power Injector (IWC3060) sends power down the spare pairs in the CAT5 cable Power Injector supply 15 – 28V
  44. 44. PoE Warning Irisys IP enabled counters are NOT PoE compliant • PoE switches supply 44 – 57V • Irisys IP Counter require 12 – 28V • PoE Voltage levels will destroy an Irisys IP counter! As part of the 802.3af (PoE) specification: • PoE switches should not supply voltage to a non-PoE device • PoE switches should provide isolation between all cable connections and ground Many switches claim to be 802.3af compliant – but are NOT
  45. 45. PoE Warning A fully and completely 802.3af compliant PoE switch will work fine: PoE Switch – (Each Port) PSU Circuit Mains Plug L N E People Counter 48V 24V Tx External PSU Rx L + + - Rx 0V Mains Plug N E Tx CAT5 Network Cable Gnd Tx Rx 0V RS232 • The switch correctly recognises a non PoE device and no voltage is supplied from the switch
  46. 46. PoE Warning A non 802.3af compliant PoE switch could incorrectly detect the counter as a PoE device and supply 50V: PoE Switch – (Each Port) PSU Circuit Mains Plug 48V 24V Tx L N E People Counter Rx + - - 0V Tx CAT5 Network Cable Power supplied incorrectly by switch This will destroy the counter! Mains Plug L + Rx • External PSU Gnd Tx Rx 0V RS232 N E
  47. 47. PoE Warning Even if PoE is manually disabled; a non 802.3af compliant switch may have a grounded connection: PoE Switch – (Each Port) People Counter 48V 24V PSU Circuit Mains Plug L N E Tx External PSU Rx L + + - Rx 0V Tx CAT5 Network Cable Gnd Tx Rx 0V RS232 Non Compliant Ground Reference! • Power supplied even with PoE Switched Off! This will destroy the counter! Mains Plug N E
  48. 48. Irisys Power Injector Recommended An Irisys Power Injector is fully isolated and will stop PoE voltage: PoE Switch – (Each Port) 48V CAT5 Network Cable Power Injector – (Each Port) People Counter 24V PSU Circuit Mains Plug N E Tx Rx Rx L Tx + - 0V CAT5 Network Cable Non Compliant Ground Reference • + - L Tx Rx Gnd N E Counter NOT Damaged RS23 2 Irisys Power Injectors are recommended to prevent damage from non compliant PoE switches 0V
  49. 49. PoE Warning A fully and completely 802.3af compliant PoE switch will work fine with Irisys counters. • • Unfortunately there is no easy way to identify a non compliant switch A non compliant switch may blow the counter immediately, or after a couple of hours The only way to protect against a non compliant PoE switch is to utilise an Irisys Power Injector • The input and output are fully isolated so PoE voltage cannot go through, and on, to destroy the counter
  50. 50. Cable Connections Power Injector (IWC3060) is intended to be installed in the patch panel cabinet: Structured cabling 100m (330ft) Max IP cable length
  51. 51. Cable Connections Power Injectors have four ports and so can provide power to up to four different locations: 100m (330ft) Max IP cable length
  52. 52. Battery Backup Insert the included battery into the IP masters battery holder: • • • Check correct polarity! Battery is required for correct date and time during power failures (Not required on node units) The battery may not be required, as long as the data retrieval software time syncs at every data poll and also reconciles any out of sequence data records
  53. 53. Multiple Counters For Wide Entrances
  54. 54. Wide Opening Networks For wider doorways, a ‘Wide Opening Network’ must be used. W H To calculate the number of units required, the mounting height graph is used again (Irisys document IPU40188).
  55. 55. Wide Opening Networks To prevent people being missed, the field of view of all the counters on a Wide Opening Network, must overlap: As part of the configuration stage all units positions are checked to verify that there is a sufficient overlap.
  56. 56. Mounting Height Graph (m) The dotted line shows the maximum distance that counters can be mounted to ensure the minimum amount of overlap: 60° Lens 4.34m 4.33m 4.03m 4.04m 20° Lens Outdoor only 40° Lens 2.1m 1.8m 2.17m 2.16m 1.85m 1.9m 4.34m 4.05m
  57. 57. Mounting Height Graph (inches) The dotted line shows the maximum distance that counters can be mounted to ensure the minimum amount of overlap: 60° Lens 170” 170” 159” 20° Lens 158” Outdoor only 40° Lens 81” 70” 85” 72” 85” 74” 171” 159”
  58. 58. Mounting Locations - Examples Do NOT leave a gap or people will be missed: Overhead View Side View
  59. 59. Mounting Locations - Examples Equally, do NOT position units too close with a very large overlap, this could produce tracking errors and possible over counting: Overhead View Side View
  60. 60. Mounting Locations - Examples Units should be positioned no further apart than the maximum separation (shown on mounting height graph): This ensures the required amount of overlap. Overhead View Side View
  61. 61. Mounting Locations - Examples Units on a wide opening network must be positioned at optimum distance from the door (as with single units): FOV ½ FOV Overhead View
  62. 62. Mounting Locations - Examples Always point units into the store, and parallel to each other: Overhead View
  63. 63. Mounting Locations - Examples The below example could probably be configured in order to make it work, but is NOT recommended: Overhead View
  64. 64. Mounting Locations - Examples This will definitely NOT work: Overhead View
  65. 65. Mounting Locations - Examples Although units can be positioned in any arrangement; for ease of configuration it is recommended that the master is located on the left (looking into the store!): Master Node Overhead View
  66. 66. Mounting Locations - Examples Wide opening networks can be up to five* units wide: FOV ½ FOV Master Node Overhead View
  67. 67. Dual View Wide Openings - Examples The video view from a Dual View Unit has a wider field of view than the thermal view: Video Thermal Overhead View
  68. 68. Dual View Wide Openings - Examples A Dual View unit must be positioned in the middle of a three (max) counter Wide Opening Network: Node • Master Node The Dual Views video view will see the equivalent of both node views as well as its own. Overhead View
  69. 69. Mounting Locations - Examples If the door is fully open and is undercover, e.g. a shop in a mall, the units can be positioned closer to the ‘lease line’ if required: Overhead View Side View Care should be taken to avoid blocking any of the field of view.
  70. 70. Wide Opening Networks Where a shop entrance is completely open during trading hours - and in a shopping mall - the ideal counter position is just above, or as close as possible, to the ‘lease line’: ‘lease line’ Front View
  71. 71. Mounting Locations - Examples Units on a wide opening network can be positioned anywhere within the field of view, if required. Ceiling Obstacle Obstacles can be avoided in this way. Overhead View
  72. 72. Mounting Locations - Examples Units can also be positioned at different heights, if required (for uneven or innovative ceilings!): Overhead View Side View
  73. 73. Wide Opening Networks Wide Opening Networks don’t have to be installed in a straight line. This example shows an installation around two sides of a fully open store, in a shopping mall: Side/Front View
  74. 74. Wide Opening Networks In these types of examples, all units must point in the same direction: Overhead View
  75. 75. Wide Opening Networks It doesn’t matter which direction they point, as long as they’re all the same: Overhead View
  76. 76. Mounting Locations - Examples At wide entrances in busy malls, people can bunch together and queue at the doors. Counters should be installed as Corridor-like installations away from the doors: Install counters away from the entrances to the individual stores if possible Overhead View
  77. 77. Mounting Locations - Examples If counting through - and around - places like malls, always ensure that the counters are mounted away from individual store entrances, wherever possible: OK Counters installed parallel to traffic flow OK Preferred Overhead View
  78. 78. Wide Opening Networks In corridors, do not position units too close together with large overlaps: Overhead View Side View
  79. 79. Wide Opening Networks Instead, position units further apart, as below: Overhead View Side View
  80. 80. Disjointed Wide Openings
  81. 81. Disjointed Wide Opening Networks The normal use of a wide opening is to fully cover a wide entrance which a single unit could not cover by itself: But also a wide opening network can be utilised to cover multiple doors which are close to each other, but not close enough for units to overlap:
  82. 82. Disjointed Wide Opening Networks The advantages: • • • • Only one IP connection required Simple cabling – star wiring to each doorway NOT required Up to eight units = up to eight doors covered Count Logs from all doors covered are retrieved from one master unit Disadvantages: • • The more doors covered, (potentially) the less storage space available for count logging If master goes down, all doors ‘go down’
  83. 83. Disjointed Wide Opening Networks Ensure that the cable length from Master unit to last node does not exceed 60m (200ft): 60m (200ft) max
  84. 84. Wide Opening Power Requirements
  85. 85. Cable Connections For • • • a wide opening network: IP Master counter + additional nodes (max 4*) Power can be via power terminal or power over CAT5 Network must be grounded RJ45 Terminator must be connected at last counter position Power to Nodes supplied down CAT5 patch cable
  86. 86. Cable Connections Power Injector (IWC3060) wiring: Structured cabling 60m (200ft) Max CAN cable length 100m (330ft) Max IP cable length
  87. 87. Cable Connections Power for a wide opening network has some limitations: Master Power 24V Max No Of Units Power via CAT5 (Power Injector) 15V Power Supply 15V 4 24V 5
  88. 88. Cable Connections Power for a wide opening network has some limitations: Master Power Power via Terminal Block Power Supply Max No Of Units 15V 6 24V 7 15V 24V If more units required then network must be powered centrally: 24V
  89. 89. Cable Run for Dual View Wide Openings The physical cable run for a wide opening, which is using a Dual View unit situated in the middle, is as below: Node Master Node Overhead View
  90. 90. Counter Configuration Over IP Connection
  91. 91. Counter Configuration Each counter must be configured with a number of settings: • • • • • Usual configuration is via IP connection through an Internet Browser Browser must support Microsoft SilverLight add-on, e.g. Internet Explorer Setup Tool is served as web pages to Internet browser All settings made are stored in counters Flash memory (Alternative configuration is via serial)
  92. 92. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software If connecting via IP: • • • • • Ensure laptop is on the same IP range as the IP master IP Master default IP address is 192.168.0.10 Internet Explorer is preferred browser Also compatible with Firefox, Safari & Google Chrome Simply enter IP address in address bar:
  93. 93. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software You will need to login to the counter. Default Login Details are: • • Username: admin Password: installer
  94. 94. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Connected:
  95. 95. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Enter the required IP details first:
  96. 96. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Settings will be applied: The redirect will most likely fail until you change your laptop IP address to the same range as the counters new IP address. Reconnect to the counter.
  97. 97. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Ensure Client Connection Mode is enabled or disabled as required:
  98. 98. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Change password if required:
  99. 99. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Then go into the Setup Tool to configure the counting functionality: • • Setup Tool requires the MS Silverlight add-on Ensure you have it installed before you get to site!
  100. 100. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Silverlight will load: …and it will connect to the counter:
  101. 101. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Firstly, the “Configuration Wizard” will run through: • The configuration Wizard is run automatically at various times during the setup process to ensure the counter is configured correctly
  102. 102. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Number of units will be reported: Click Next If units have never been configured before (brand new) they must be configured with valid IDs:
  103. 103. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software The default Comms ID is 127: • • • • Note the message “Find the device with LEDs flashing” Confirm that you are setting the ID for the correct unit When two or more units are connected they will not necessarily be displayed in the order that they were installed on the ceiling! Enter a valid Comms ID of between 1 and 120
  104. 104. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software For simplicity, it is recommended that you always enter an ID of 1 for a master unit and for node units use 2, 3, 4, etc. • • Once you’ve entered a valid Comms ID, click ‘Next’ As long as the IDs are all unique the Changes will be verified successfully:
  105. 105. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Number of units will be reported again: Click ‘Next’ Then the new settings will be saved. Again, click ‘Next’:
  106. 106. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Next you must specify the correct X and Y coordinates: • For a single unit 0,0 is valid
  107. 107. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Next you must specify the correct X and Y coordinates: • • • The default positions will be identical for multiple brand new units The Wizard will therefore report a problem “Unit overlap may be excessive”
  108. 108. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Think of the units as being positioned on a grid: Overhead View
  109. 109. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software You then give each unit its X and Y coordinates on the grid referencing from the master (measure accurately!): 0, 0 240, 0 Y X (cm) Overhead View
  110. 110. Mounting Locations - Examples Thinking back to the below example which would probably work, but is NOT recommended.... Overhead View
  111. 111. Mounting Locations - Examples If units are out of line with each other, be very careful with measurements: 0, 0 270, 50 Y X Overhead View
  112. 112. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Then enter the X and Y coordinates, and the height, for each unit: • Note the message “Find the device with LEDs flashing”
  113. 113. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Once everything is entered, click Finish: Or (Example)
  114. 114. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Be careful of any warnings, click ‘Previous’ if you need to modify any settings: (Units very close together) (Units very far apart)
  115. 115. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software You will then see the Ground Plane View:
  116. 116. Disjointed Wide Opening Networks When setting the X and Y values of units which have been installed without an overlap, the values do not really matter. 10m (33ft) • For ease of viewing on the ground plane, X and Y values can be set closer than actual, if required: 5m (16ft)
  117. 117. Disjointed Wide Opening Networks But do not set the X and Y values of units too close, as there could potentially be some, false tracking of targets between views: 10m (33ft)
  118. 118. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software The higher the counter is mounted, the bigger field of view will be provided (enter the height as accurately as possible): Size of Field of view at 2.5m Size of Field of view at 4.5m
  119. 119. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software You can change the mounting height and X, Y coordinates at any time by clicking the ‘cog’ symbol: For a single unit, the X and Y coordinates can be left as 0,0.
  120. 120. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software People are counted when they are seen to cross the count line. The count lines should therefore be positioned for best accuracy.
  121. 121. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software With wide opening networks, a target should be tracked correctly between counter field of views: If a target is not tracked smoothly, between views, check your height, X, and Y settings and measurements!
  122. 122. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Counters installed at different heights, will have different sized field of views: The counter at (0,0) is installed 3m high. The counter at (300,0) is installed 4m high.
  123. 123. IRISYS People Counter Setup Software Any units offset from each other, will be positioned and displayed offset on the ground plane view: (You will still need to adjust the count lines)
  124. 124. Wide Opening Networks Units that are not installed in a simple straight line must have appropriate X and Y values configured in order to reflect their true position:
  125. 125. Wide Opening Networks The direction that the units are pointing on the ceiling must be considered when configured X and Y coordinates correctly: =
  126. 126. Wide Opening Networks In these types of examples, all units must point in the same direction: =
  127. 127. Wide Opening Networks In these types of examples, all units must point in the same direction: =
  128. 128. Count Line Configuration
  129. 129. Count Line Configuration Correct placement of the count lines is the key to accurate counting • • It is the installers responsibility to position the count lines correctly for the installed location Extensive walk testing is advised! Things to remember: • • • People must cross the count line in the correct direction to register a valid count. People do not have to cross both lines in order to generate a count increment – both lines work independently. Four selectable count modes are available in order to change the way the count increments are given.
  130. 130. Initialisation Requirements • • Count lines must be positioned to allow a certain amount of target ‘initialisation’. At the point a target appears it is said to be initialised.
  131. 131. Initialisation Requirements • Initialisation is not always the same so the count lines should be positioned for worst case:
  132. 132. Initialisation Requirements Here the ‘IN’ count line is too close to the edge of the field of view This person was not counted because he was ‘initialised’ after the count line With the count lines positioned further into the field of view people will be initialised before crossing the ‘IN’ line
  133. 133. Initialisation Requirements Arranging the count lines in an arc around a door, is a common configuration. • It allows sufficient initialisation. • And, people who enter and turn immediately left or right will not be missed.
  134. 134. Count Line Configuration - Examples With security barriers at the entrance, count lines should be positioned between them: Overhead View Side View
  135. 135. Count Line Configuration - Examples If initialisation is tight; lines should be angled between the ends of the security barriers: Overhead View Side View
  136. 136. Count Line Configuration - Examples If doors can swing into the field of view, lines must be positioned in an arc around them: Overhead View Side View
  137. 137. Count Line Configuration - Examples This way the doors themselves can’t be counted, but anyone who walks in and out will be: Overhead View Side View
  138. 138. Count Line Configuration - Examples Do not leave a gap where people could be missed: Overhead View Side View
  139. 139. Count Line Configuration - Examples If doors are automatic sliding type, ensure doors cannot cross the ends of the lines as they slide open and closed: Overhead View Side View
  140. 140. Count Line Configuration - Examples For units positioned closer to the lease line (under cover shopping mall stores) position the lines along the lease line, ensuring enough initialisation: Overhead View Side View
  141. 141. Count Line Configuration - Examples With a shop in a mall entrance, the count lines can be positioned along the lease line if required. Remember that passing traffic will not be counted even if seen by the counter. Only people who cross the count line will be counted. Overhead View
  142. 142. Count Line Configuration - Examples Always position the count lines around the swing of the door: Overhead View Side View
  143. 143. Count Line Configuration - Examples Watch for the possibility of cross traffic. In this case this person could generate an extra counts: • Position the count lines as close to the door as possible in order to reduce this problem (but not at the expense of initialisation) • You can also change the count mode Overhead View
  144. 144. Count Line Configuration - Examples Count lines should be positioned from ‘wall to wall’ in a corner installation: Overhead View Side View
  145. 145. Count Line Configuration - Examples Count lines on a wide opening should be configured in a similar to single units, but across all counter field of views to encircle the door(s): Overhead View
  146. 146. Count Line Configuration - Examples Most Corridor-like installations can be configured with simple straight lines through the centre of the field of view: • • This usually ensures that there is enough space for initialisation in both directions Also, anyone dithering on the count lines should not generate more counts in one direction than the other Overhead View
  147. 147. Count Line Configuration - Examples Wide Opening Network installations are installed similar to single units in corridors with lines through the centre of the field of views: Overhead View
  148. 148. Count Line Configuration - Examples In ‘busy’ corridors where office furniture and other objects can be interacted with, people may not walk straight through the field of view without stopping. • In these cases careful line placement may be required to avoid counting people who stop in the field of view Overhead View
  149. 149. Count Line Configuration - Examples In narrow corridors beware of thermal reflections from the walls. These can generate extra counts if the count lines are not positioned correctly: • Lines should be positioned across the floor only • Always bring the lines in from the edges Front View Overhead View
  150. 150. Count Line Configuration - Examples For optimum counting through corridors, count lines should be configured through the middle of the field of views wherever possible: Overhead View
  151. 151. Count Line Configuration - Examples Always bring the lines in from the edges: Overhead View Side View
  152. 152. Count Line Configuration - Elevators At Elevators, do not stretch count lines across multiple views in order to count two or more elevators: Overhead View
  153. 153. Count Line Configuration - Elevators Configure separate IN and OUT lines for each Elevator. Keep them as close to the door as possible in order to avoid counting people walking past or waiting nearby: Move count lines further out from the door if people exiting the elevator are not being picked up in time Overhead View
  154. 154. Count Line Configuration - Escalators Stay clear of the ‘landing zone’ at the top and bottom of escalators: • Position count lines around the landing zone • Always configure ‘UP’ & ‘DOWN’ lines in case escalator direction is reversed in future
  155. 155. Multiple Count Lines
  156. 156. Multiple Count Lines Additional count lines can be added or count lines removed at any time: • Just click the ‘Add Line’ button to add a line: • Click the red ‘X’ to remove a line:
  157. 157. Multiple Count Lines New count lines added will be placed in the same place on the ground plane view:
  158. 158. Multiple Count Lines Simply click and drag to reveal the lines underneath:
  159. 159. Multiple Count Lines There can be between 1 and 8 count lines enabled at once: • • Any count line which is enabled will be logged in flash Because the amount of flash is finite, only enable the required number of lines and remove those not in use
  160. 160. Flash Memory - Count Log Capacity The length of time that the flash lasts before older entries are overwritten depends on the number of lines enabled and the logging interval: • • Any count line which is enabled will be logged in flash Only enable the required number of lines and remove those not in use!
  161. 161. Other Counter Settings
  162. 162. Other Settings Clicking on the Menu/Irisys symbol button will bring up further options: Click on ‘Global’ settings.

  166. 166. Discrimination Sensitivity
  167. 167. Discrimination Sensitivity The Discrimination Sensitivity slider affects how the counter interprets the thermal signature: • • • • • • A single person is shown as a yellow target A ‘couple’ is shown as a blue target If single people are being seen as couples (blue targets) lower the sensitivity slightly If couples are being seen as single people (yellow targets) raise the sensitivity slightly At very low heights you may need to lower the sensitivity to avoid over counting At very high heights you may need to raise the sensitivity to avoid under counting
  168. 168. Large Target Couple Counting
  169. 169. Large Target Couple Counting This option enables the blue targets. With disabled, all targets will be yellow and counted as one only. • • • • Normally this option should be left enabled to allow for the possibility of people walking very close to each other and getting the correct count of two Use the Discrimination Sensitivity slider to adjust this behaviour If over counting is proving to be an issue this option can be disabled Disable if supermarket shopping carts are being counted, for example
  170. 170. Extended Grouping Mode
  171. 171. Extended Grouping Mode This option is provided to give more control of the internal grouping of targets seen by the counter. • • • • • • Normally this option should be left disabled Enabling this option will mean that more targets will be joined together and counted as one Even targets very far apart will be joined together and counted as one Re-adjust the Discrimination Sensitivity slider to affect this behaviour Enable if supermarket shopping carts are being still being counted, for example Enable to provide a basic ‘shopping unit’ count – all people entering together will be counted as one only
  172. 172. Count Modes
  173. 173. Count Mode Setting Set the correct count mode. It is the installer’s responsibility to select the appropriate counting mode based on: • • • • The Count Line configuration The behaviour of people What you want to count What you don’t want to count (In most cases the default ‘Deferred’ count mode will be the recommended count mode)
  174. 174. Count Modes - Immediate When Immediate Count Mode is selected, the first count increment is given at the time of line crossing • • Anti Dither enabled – only first crossing counted Anti Dither Disabled – all line crossings counted X Anti Dither Enable Anti Dither Disabled 10 10 X X 10 11 X X X 10 21
  175. 175. Count Modes - Deferred When Deferred count mode is selected, count increments are only given when the target leaves the field of view • • Each target can only be counted a maximum of once per count line Count U-Turns option affects targets which cross both lines X X X X Count U-Turns Enabled Count U-Turns Disabled 10 10 11 00 10 10
  176. 176. Count Modes - Deferred With Count U-Turns Disabled, cross traffic can be ignored. • Lines must be positioned so that cross walkers will always cross one line then the other Count U-Turns Disabled • 00 00 00 Recommended Count Mode for majority of installations
  177. 177. Deferred Initialisation
  178. 178. Deferred Initialisation Deferred Initialisation should be left disabled in most cases: • • • When enabled it adds more checks to a thermal signal before it is initialised as a valid target This means initialisation takes much longer This is to help prevent ‘Ghost targets’
  179. 179. Deferred Initialisation Ghost targets are targets seen on the ground plane when no actual person is walking underneath a counter They are caused by rapid temperature change of the floor immediately below a counter An example situation where ghost targets may be seen is here: • • The sun shines through a glass entrance and makes the floor very hot ... Side View
  180. 180. Deferred Initialisation • • • When the doors open, wind blows in through the opening and rapidly cools down the floor This cooling action moves through the field of view which the counter will detect as a person Ghost targets move in a random meandering pattern Overhead View Side View
  181. 181. Deferred Initialisation Because Ghost targets move differently to targets from genuine people they can be recognized by the counter. This is done with extra target checks before initialising. Because of initialisation takes longer with deferred initialisation, it should not be enabled by default. • • Deferred initialisation should only be enabled when genuine ghost targets have been confirmed or strongly suspected Count lines will also need to be modified to accommodate longer initialisation requirements on genuine targets Overhead View
  182. 182. Path Map Data
  183. 183. Path Map Data Now Display Path map Data: • • You should see the paths that people have been walking through the field of view If working underneath the counter, path maps will be mixed up (below right), so select ‘Reset Path Mapping’
  184. 184. Path Map Data The path map function allows line placements to be verified: • • Lines should not be positioned in ‘initialisation areas’ (light blue areas) Lines should stretch across ‘well trodden paths’ (darkest blue) to ensure people aren’t being missed
