3D Automatic Passenger Counting system Camera for buses is used for counting passengers going in and out of a bus, it can also used for ship, train, etc
PC168 Automatic Passenger Counting system Camera for buses advantages

HPC168 Automatic Passenger Counting system Camera for buses 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.
Below is 1 minute introduction about our HPC168 Automatic passenger counting system camera for buses: and more details is below the video
HPC168 Automatic Passenger Counting system Camera for buses 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.

MRB hpc168passenger counting system adopts the latest generation of Huawei chip, with very high calculation accuracy, small error and fast running speed. We integrate the processor, 3D camera and other hardware into one shell. Specifically, it has the following advantages:

1. Simple installation, plug and play, our hpc168 is all in 1 system, the whole set of equipment has only one product, the installation is very convenient. Other companies use a processor and a camera, but also need a lot of connecting lines between the two, the installation is cumbersome.
2. The product price is low. If a bus only installs passenger counter on one door, the cost of our all in 1 system will be far lower than that of other companies, because the product of other companies is a processor plus camera.
3. Fast operation speed: whether installing passenger counter on one door or installing multiple passenger counters on multiple doors, because we are a passenger counter with a prosensor embedded, our operation speed is faster than that of other people's passengers Counter's computing speed is 2-3 times of that of other companies. Moreover, we use the latest chips, which will be much faster than the similar products of other companies.
4. The shell of hpc168 passenger counting system is ABS plastic shell, and the processor is also integrated in the shell, so the total weight is very small, which is only one fourth or even lighter than other passenger counters in the market, so the air freight will be much cheaper. The passenger counter of other companies not only uses a heavy metal shell for camera, but also for processor. The combination of the two will become heavier, which will lead to the high cost of cross-border air transportation.
5. The shell of MRB hpc168 passenger counter adopts high strength ABS, which first meets the vibration environment, and then adopts integrated design. The bracket supports 180 degree rotation installation, which is flexible and durable.
6. In order to avoid injury to passengers caused by collision, the shell appearance of hpc168 bus counter adopts arc-shaped design, and all the connecting lines are installed covertly, which is beautiful and durable, and avoids the injury to passengers caused by the sharp edges of the metal shell.

HPC168 Automatic Passenger Counting system Camera for buses 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 Automatic Passenger Counting system Camera for buses 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.

5. Command Set
5.1 Data Reset
Upon receiving data reset command, HPC168 counter clears internal counter, and returns to response frame.
e.g. Send data reset command to HPC168 counter with address 0x0001.
0x02 0x30 0x300x30 0x31 0x31 0x32 0x30 0x30 0x31 0x33 0x03
Correct response means passenger flow sensor has already executed and completed command contents.
0x02 0x30 0x300x30 0x31 0x39 0x32 0x30 0x31 0x30 0x36 0x39 0x41 0x03
Error response: (e.g. ID=0002)
0x02 0x30 0x300x30 0x32 0x39 0x32
0x30 0x31  

Error response means HPC168 Bus Passenger Counting system camera cannot recognize the instruction (packet loss issue) or algorithm internal conflict which leads to inability to complete processing instruction content.
If HPC168 Bus Passenger Counter displays error response, it requests the host computer to resend data, up to 3 times, with interval no less than 1s.

5.2 Passenger Flow Data Query
Passenger flow data query is initiated by the host computer. Upon receiving command, HPC168 counter returns present accumulative passenger flow data.
e.g. Send passenger flow data query command to HPC168 counter with address 0x0001.
0x02 0x30 0x300x30 0x31 0x31 0x33 0x30 0x30 0x31 0x34 0x03
