People counting keeps the workplace safe

For people detection and counting in indoor spaces, such as office space and municipal areas, Analog Devices has developed the EagleEye ADSW4000 which uses the PeopleCount algorithm.

It is the first in a series of application-level software algorithms forming part of the ADI EagleEye platform that includes a hardware subsystem based on ADI’s Blackfin embedded DSP and a set of application-level software building blocks enabling users to quickly develop their own people counting system. The ADSW4000 algorithm provides system edge node analytics to allow intelligent insight into use of space, and how people move safely within that space with distance monitoring. It is also useful to gather intelligence on the energy efficiency of spaces within ‘smart’ buildings. 

The EagleEye counts people in indoor areas, based on the x and y co-ordinates of a person’s location. It uses zoned performance, enabling multiple areas for wider coverage and edge processing. The metadata is output over UART and no captured images are transmitted. 

EagleEye can solve workspace needs and maximise worker wellbeing and productivity, says ADI. For maximum coverage area applications, accuracy of 80 per cent can be achieved in a 5m radius.

The Eval-ADSW4000KTZ evaluation kit with embedded ADSW4000 algorithm and cloud dashboard access is available now. 

Analog Devices offers a suite of analogue and mixed signal, power management, radio frequency (RF), and digital and sensor technologies for customers in the industrial, communications, automotive, and consumer markets.
