The Design of a Novel Sensor Fusion Model for Monitoring People’s Density in Public Places Using Infrared Thermography
There is an increasing need in modern cities for automated Crowd Condition Monitoring (CCM) in order to provide continuous real-time on-line information regarding the density, number and movement behaviour of crowd within a specific area in order to allow the required level of services and facilities to be specified and directed. This paper describes the novel application of low-cost infrared system for estimating people’s density using infrared thermography. Sensor fusion system is developed to compensate for environmental noise. The results show that the suggested monitoring system could provide an efficient method to estimate crowd’s density.
