  7. 7. Business Drivers for Automatic Passenger Counting (APC)
  8. 8. source: www.transitcenter.org source: www.newgeography.com Transit trends The good news and the bad
  9. 9. How APC Systems Can Help • Data-driven Route/Capacity Optimization - timetables and routes • Dynamic fare pricing • Revenue Assurance • Integration with Passenger Information Systems – improves rider experience  increases ridership • Deliver Key Performance Metrics: – passengers per mile, cost per passenger, number of passengers per driver, etc. • Data for regulatory compliance, program grants, etc.
  10. 10. Factors to Consider for Effective APC systems • Accuracy – Count quality under all conditions • Reliability – Sensor/camera system uptime – Reliability of E2E solution • Integration with Operational Systems and AVL – for route optimization • Ease of Maintenance – Device management • Data management
  11. 11. Eurotech’s DynaPCN APC Sensors
  12. 12. Adjustable optical panel Eurotech’s DynaPCN sensor High Accuracy: • >98% accuracy in field • Operates in poorly lit conditions or bad weather • Configurable and programmable Stereoscopic Cameras Infrared Illuminators Field Proven Reliability and Long Deployment Life Rugged design: • IP65 environmental rating • Extended temperature • Low power Non-invasive / confidential data collection
  13. 13. How It Works • Stereo vision for height map – i.e. it detects shoulders and heads • Height maps look like “blobs” – no identity detection • Image analysis enhances the scene and tracks/counts the blobs across virtual boundaries Video Acquisition & Real-time Image Analysis
