What favor does ADAS bring2020-12-04T17:25:48+08:00

ADAS systems constantly monitor the vehicle surroundings, alert the driver of hazardous road conditions, and take corrective actions, such as slowing or stopping the vehicle. These systems use inputs from multiple sensors, such as cameras and radars. The fusion of these inputs is processed and the information is delivered to the driver and other parts of the system. The same sensor technologies can be used both in the current ADAS systems and in the upcoming fully autonomous driving systems

What is BPC default IP?2020-10-12T09:00:28+08:00

The default lan IP is 192.168.1.253 for BPC-N1,BPC-X2.

IP: 192.168.1.200 for BPC-T3

Traffic sign recognition2020-10-12T08:57:57+08:00

Traffic sign recognition (TSR) systems can recognize common traffic signs, such as a “stop” sign or a “turn ahead” sign, through image processing techniques. This system takes into account the sign’s shape, such as hexagons and rectangles, and the color to classify what the sign is communicating to the driver.[48] Since most systems currently use camera-based technology, a wide variety of factors can make the system less accurate. These include poor lighting conditions, extreme weather conditions, and partial obstruction of the sign

What is Pedestrian protection system?2020-10-12T08:55:37+08:00

Pedestrian protection systems are designed to minimize the number of accidents or injuries that occur between a vehicle and a pedestrian. This system uses cameras and sensors to determine when the front of a vehicle strikes a pedestrian. When the collision occurs, the vehicle’s bonnet lifts to provide a cushion between the vehicle’s hard engine components and the pedestrian. This helps minimize the possibility of a severe head injury when the pedestrian’s head comes into contact with the vehicle.

What is parking camera sensor?2020-10-12T08:54:42+08:00

Parking camera sensors can scan the vehicle’s surroundings for objects when the driver initiates parking. Audio warnings can notify the driver of the distance between the vehicle and its surrounding objects. Typically, the faster the audio warnings are issued, the closer the vehicle is getting to the object. These camera or radar sensors may not detect objects closer to the ground, such as parking stops, which is why parking sensors typically work alongside backup cameras to assist the driver when reversing into a parking spot.

What is Lane departure warning system (LDW)?2020-10-12T08:53:13+08:00

A lane departure warning system (LDW) alerts the driver when they partially merge into a lane without using their turn signals. An LDW system uses cameras to monitor lane markings to determine if the driver unintentionally begins to drift. This system does not take control of the vehicle to help sway the car back into the safety zone but insted sends an audio or visual alert to the driver.

What is Forward Collision Warning (FCW)?2020-10-12T08:51:47+08:00

Forward Collision Warnings (FCW) monitor the speed of the vehicle and the vehicle in front of it, and the open distance around the vehicle. FCW systems will send an alert to the driver of a possible impending collision if gets too close to the vehicle in front of it. These systems do not take control of the vehicle, as currently, FCW systems only send an alert signal to the driver in the form of an audio alert, visual pop-up display, or other warning alert.

What is Driver Monitoring System2020-10-12T08:49:27+08:00

Driver monitoring systems is a vehicle safety system designed to monitor the alertness of the driver. These systems use biological and performance measures to assess the driver’s alertness and ability to conduct safe driving practices. Currently, these systems use infrared sensors and cameras to monitor the driver’s attentiveness through eye-tracking. If the vehicle detects a possible obstacle, it will notify the driver and if no action is taken, the vehicle may react to the obstacle.

What is driver drowsiness detection?2020-10-12T08:48:18+08:00

Driver drowsiness detection systems aim to prevent collisions due to driver fatigue.The vehicle obtains information, such as facial patterns, steering movement, driving habits, turn signal use, and diving velocity, to determine if the driver’s activities correspond with drowsy driving. If drowsy driving is suspected, the vehicle will typically sound off a loud alert and may vibrate the driver’s seat.

What is Collision avoidance system (Pre-crash system)2020-10-12T08:47:13+08:00

A collision avoidance system, or pre-crash system, uses small radar detectors, typically placed near the front of the car, to determine the car’s vicinity to nearby obstacles and notify the driver of potential car crash situations. These systems can account for any sudden changes to the car’s environment that may cause a collision. Systems can respond to a possible collision situation with multiple actions, such as sounding an alarm, tensing up passengers’ seat belts, closing a sunroof, and raising reclined seats.

What is blind spot monitor?2020-10-12T09:02:41+08:00

Blind spots are defined as the areas behind or at the side of the vehicle that the driver cannot see from the driver’s seat.A blind-spot monitor involves cameras that monitor the driver’s blind spots and notify the driver if any obstacles come close to the vehicle. Blind-spot monitoring systems typically work in conjunction with emergency braking systems to act accordingly if any obstacles come into the vehicle’s path.  We can offer AI blindspot cameras too.

What is Backup camera?2020-10-12T09:05:03+08:00

A vehicle backup camera provides real-time video information regarding the location of your vehicle and its surroundings. This camera offers driver’s aid when backing up by providing a viewpoint that is typically a blind spot in traditional cars. When the driver puts the car in reverse, the cameras automatically turns on.

ADAS can provide reliable 100% alert?2020-10-12T08:37:56+08:00

Current ADAS technology and products are really advanced than before. Reamol ADAS cameras , like Mobileye, can offer rich alerts to help driver prevent their vehicles from many possible accident loss. However, the driving status are very complicated, lighting, image effect, strange signs and many unexpected actors make the AI box fall into questions. AI system will not offer alert if some actors are not be learnt before. Driver need to keep caution on driving all the time, even there are is AI box.

What does Advanced Driver Assistance Systems(ADAS) mean?2020-10-12T08:28:11+08:00
Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are electronic systems that assist drivers in driving and parking functions. Through a safe human-machine interface, ADAS increase car and road safety. ADAS systems use automated technology, such as sensors and cameras, to detect nearby obstacles or driver errors, and respond accordingly.

Most road accidents occur due to human error.[ Advanced driver-assistance systems are systems developed to automate, adapt, and enhance vehicle systems for safety and better driving. ADAS’s automated systems are proven to reduce road fatalities by minimizing human error. Safety features are designed to avoid accidents and collisions by offering technologies that alert the driver to problems, implementing safeguards, and taking control of the vehicle if necessary. Adaptive features may automate lighting, provide adaptive cruise control, assist in avoiding collisions, incorporate satnav/traffic warnings, alert drivers to possible obstacles, assist in lane departure and lane centering, provide navigational assistance through smartphones, and provide many more features.

Why Reamol people counter not via facial recognition ?2020-10-12T08:23:14+08:00

Reamol video people counter can not be capturing the people’s face. Therefore, it would not count via facial recognition. The counting would be based on the people’s body head and shoulder shap. In compliance with the GDPR policy released in May of 2018, we cannot provide demographic details such as age, or gender.

And the facial recoginition products require throw view angle, and it is easy to counting repeatly even the man not move. So currently only binocular technology is the best and most accuracy choice for retails people counting.

Does People Counter comply with the latest General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?2020-10-12T08:18:17+08:00

We are compliant with the current privacy regulations and work towards further compliance and upholding of the privacy of individuals. Under the GDPR regulations introduced in 2016 and implemented on May of 2018, there are several exceptions that applies to responsible manner of handling the data, such as anonymisation.

  • Recital 26 of the GDRP dictates that the regulation applies to information concerning an identifiable person. Information that is rendered anonymous and untraceable through irreversible pseudonymisation and unidentifiable to the person are not covered by this regulation. Furthermore, anonymous information processing such as for statistical purpose are too not liable for regulation by GDPR, which is the usage of FootfallCam.
  • In Chapter 2, Article 6, Clause 4-e; Chapter 4, Article 25; and Chapter 4, Article 32, Clause 1-a highlights the compliance with the regulation through irreversible pseudonymisation and encryption of the data, such as through data minimisation.
How many People Counters for my entrance?2020-10-12T08:16:21+08:00

The number of people counter required is dependent on the height of the ceiling and the width of the entrance. You may key in the data over to have an estimation of the number of cameras. The counting width is between 2 heads closed to each side of entrance. The view width is between  2 foots closed to each side. However, only head width is really working width, not foot width.

If your entrance not often get busy traffic, most of visitors should pass the entrance in the middle, you can directly consider the foot view width.

Usually we have 2 types of video people counter for retails:VPC-X and VPC-T3.

VPC-X, with 2.8mm lens, can cover 1.5m width when at 2.8-3.2m height.

VPC-X, with 4mm lens, can cover 2m width when at 3.3-4m height.

VPC-T3,  with 2.8mm lens, can cover 2.5m width when at 2.8-3.2m height. (recoomend)

VPC-T3, with 4mm lens, can cover 3m width when at 3.3-4m height.

Why passenger counter not  start counting?2020-10-11T18:31:45+08:00

ACC Connect Engine Ignition Switch

Different from other counters in the world, Watchdog bus passenger counter require ACC connection to our counter. Many people wonder why others not have such requirement. Because this is our gold experience during thousands of units in the world.

1. Get Trip Records:

Counter will reset counting numbers in display to 0 after engine stop. It is a very useful feature to help you can get counting numbers for every trip. Not only a lasting numbers.With it, you can realize workable and user-friendly on board passenger numbers.This numbers also can be shown in LCD monitor or Bus TV, or realtime bus APP.

2. Stop Mistake Accusmate Accumulation

Bus environment is different from others. Counting object always bring mistake or wrong counts everyday. If we keep continueing counting it, people counter will make more and more mistakes on the sum data. When you find the result, you will feel hard to correct it. In normal case, our IPAS 3.0 support remote correction for counters if we find the error.

3. Counting Protection for Run-out Battery

ACC can allow counters stop working to save power, otherwise it will keep working 7*24 and burn bus battery. It will be a big complaint for customers. Without ACC control, like most of bus system, when driver stop engine arrived the destiation station, it will not counting and loss lots of passengers numbers. Even during counting, its accuracy is 100%, but it stops working at the most important time. The real result is still poor accuracy.

4. Power is not stable

Some office test by power adaptor is not good enough. Its current is very low. Sometimes it also make your counter not work. Change a 3A power adaptor to connect passenger counter, it will make counter working perfectly.

How can I connector door sensor?2020-10-11T18:18:08+08:00

All our bus passenger counter must work with door sensors, otherwise it will keep counting but never send out any data to your device or server.

When bus passenger counter running in the real bus, door sensor will help to judge station status. When bus arrive station, the people counter will start counting at once. And when bus door is closed, none of passengers will be counted, even these passengers stand under the cameras. In most of cities, passengers like to stand under the cameras when the bus is closed to their destination station. Without door sensor, there must be lots of wrong counting data.

In office test, or complexed door sensor environment, you can use our test-only-sensor to work with video passenger counter. This is the door sensor connection exaples.

Default sensor type is High/Low signal.But different buses have different types, so you must check the door sensor signals before your test.

You can connect bus console switch of the door, or external door sensors to connect IO IN1/IN2. External door sensor also need to connect 5V DC.

How people counter resume data to upload to server?2020-10-11T17:47:41+08:00

How people counter resume data to upload to server?

Moving bus is easy to lose internet, so professional people counter or other industrial level devices must ensure the network stablity and data communication safety.

Counter will resume the upload data when network recovered. Counter has its mechanism to reserve all fail records,and saved them in safety. When 3G network is connected again, counter will send latest station records first. Then door is closed, resume start to upload all lost records. This resume will not repeat records.

Video People Counter Installation Guide2020-10-11T17:18:38+08:00

Where is  the best postion for bus passenger counter ?

The installation position should be center above the bus door. Different models & buses also have different requierment on  height and width. Hereby we only take as the most popular model BPC-N1 and the standard city bus without stairs as demo.

BPC-N1 the latest advanced bus passenger counting system is designed for transit bus fleets to obtain real-time and accurate passenger quantity information. It can work in group for 1-250doors like IPC with 3G/4G GPS router.

Customer must share us with required installation information about the target vehicle before you make order or demo.Otherwise you may lose the accuracy or the project. The below illustration image will amke you understand the best position of cameras.

The counting cameras should be placed above the stair. And keep its counting field within pass-by entrance only, so that nobody can be missed to count.

Notice the placement height, suitable height range will promise the best accuracy, for special cases, users can adjust the camera type in BPC client to make a better effect.

Standard Camera Position

Best Position of Counting Lines for Different Buses

Passengers going on and off can cause a high degree of change in people, which will result in statistical inaccuracy for the passenger counters that relies on the characteristics of the collector’s head. Therefore, we should try to avoid the bad effects caused by the steps.

One steps Bus : the best state. In general, large city buses and new buses are low – chassis buses without steps. In this case, the height of the installed passenger counter of the two technical lines is consistent. So as long as it is ensured, two technical lines do not go beyond the top and bottom of the door.

  1. Ordinary steps bus: double deck bus, long-distance bus, tour bus, small bus.
  2. Multi-step bus is rather complex. In principle, the two technical lines should be placed on the same level, but the technical line can not coincide with any edge of the Taiwan machine, which will reduce the accuracy. Under special circumstances, the technical line can be placed on two different steps, but we must ensure that the lowest height is also within the effective height.Unless special circumstances, it is not recommended that the user put the technical line outside the car.
  3. Spiral steps: a spiral step can cause a count line to work. Try to avoid this kind of step position.

Very special steps, very irregular steps, the users try to avoid these steps and draw the technical lines outside the irregular steps. In addition to the area of the door, the user has other areas to choose from. For example, long distance buses can be painted on the front door corridor and so on. In special cases, two technical lines can be merged into one.
