TrueView One Way

Case scenario

The TrueView One Way® can be used in several different scenarios. Some examples below.
  • Notify the customer that he/she is walking in the wrong direction via an audio output directly from the camera.
  • Notify a security guard via email or SMS that a person is walking in the wrong direction.
  • Close entrance gates if a person is walking out of a store in the wrong direction.
  • Notify the store personnel via blinker or a sound siren that a person is walking out of the store via the entrance path.

TrueView One Way®

If there are desired entrance and exit points at your location TrueView One Way® can help keep the desired paths. TrueView One Way® is built upon the famed TrueView People Counter®. TrueView One Way® and runs fully embedded in standard ceiling mounted network cameras. The application automatically counts in real time the number of people passing under the camera and in what direction. It also gives you the possibility to trigger an alarm if a person is passing in the undesired direction.

TrueView Occupancy

Estimate of average visit time leads to improved accuracy

Traditionally, occupancy levels in a given space are estimated by the amount of IN passages minus the amount of OUT passages. Considering that no people counting solution is 100 % accurate, any missed counts or double counts will be accumulated throughout the day. This has a small effect on visitor reporting, but may result in a potentially large discrepancy when calculating occupancy.

TrueView Occupancy®, is built upon the famed TrueView People Counter®, uses a patent pending counting algorithm that has been developed to continuously analyse behaviour of visitors, and calculate an average visit time. The average visit time is then used to filter away counting errors accumulating throughout the day. The output of the application is an estimated occupancy and average visit time at any given time.
TrueView Occupancy®

TrueView Occupancy® integrates people counting technology into estimating building or shop occupancy levels. Enabling you to get actionable analytics about a physical locations' occupancy and utilization – it is growing in importance towards understanding the flow of people within a building, as well as occupancy and other facility trends.

TrueView Bicycle

TrueView Bicycle®

The bicycle is one of the most efficient vehicles in terms of road space, parking space, fuel consumption and emissions, making growth in bicycle traffic of vital importance for policy makers. Increased bicycle use can reduce the need for expensive new road infrastructure.
Benefits from bicycle and pedestrian counting

Use your precise knowledge about traffic statistics to:

  •     Improve the cycling infrastructure development and planning.
  •     Follow and analyze trends in cycling traffic activity.
  •     Promote cycling both externally and within your organization.

Counting pedestrian and bicycle traffic

TrueView Bicycle® is a product for counting pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The software installs directly into standard IP cameras. TrueView Bicycle® offers a unique, cost efficient, scalable, and easy-to-install solution. The entire system is 100 % IP network based using only standard network cameras for the counting. The system requires no auxiliary PC or PLC, no inductive loops and no costly pavement work.

TrueView Queue

TrueView Queue®

Decrease service wait time and improve in-store customer experience by matching store personnel with customer traffic

TrueView Queue® is developed especially for queue measurement and analysis. It is also the perfect tool for analyzing other areas of interest in the store as Hot Spots (see below). TrueView Queue® detects queues at for example check out and ticketing that exceed thresholds prompting additional allocation of staff. TrueView Queue® provides retailers with real time actionable insights to enhance the shopper experience without having to rely on manual input. TrueView Queue® also provides possibilities to analyse for how long time queue has been present and how queue time has fluctuated over the cause of the day – giving the possibility to compare store locations and improve staff planning.
Queue measurement

Queue management is an increasingly important issue for retailers across the globe for good reasons: getting till staffing wrong results in lengthy queues, creates a poor image of store operations and can harm potential sales. TrueView Queue® provides average number of people in queue and information about the length of the queue (low, mid or high). The flexibility for the individual retailer is great as the application allows for queue settings to be adopted according to store policy and desired service level.

TrueView Tailgating

Case scenarios

TrueView Tailgating® detects if more than one person passes under the camera during a time interval which is configured from within the application. If more than one person is detected, an alarm is triggered and appropriate action can be taken.
TrueView Tailgating®

TrueView Tailgating® helps overcome the fact that most automated access control systems do not control how many people enter the building when an access card is used, as is the case at many membership clubs, gyms, libraries, study areas, etc. The phenomenon of tailgating is also common in subways and trains.

Trueview Heatmap

Interest Region Statistics

In the upper right corner there is a chart, showing statistics from the interest regions. You can switch between different time intervals using the slider to the right of the chart.
