1. Preface
1.1 Overview
At present, the development of retail industry in the world is showing characteristics:
a. Slow Sales Growth
Network B2C and C2C sales module is a new challenge for traditional retail. This
factor tend to slow down the development of the retail industry.
b. High Operating Costs
For example in China in 2011, the staff costs of enterprises rose 26% and rental costs
rose10%.
c. High Homogeneity
The quality and features of department stores are almost the same, it leads to
Decrease of Customer Loyalty.
d. Excessive Expansion
The majority of Department store grows much faster than the growth of people actual
purchasing capability.
To solve these problems and work more effectively, managers need a new solution to get
useful information and help them to make decisions.
1.2 Applicability
People counting system is the good solution to help to collect the customer information
and adjust the sale strategy. It has the ability to count persons passing through cameras
and analyze these data with sales data. The result can be presented in reports or graphics
for managers’ reference.

Comparing with infrared technology and other Statistics system, the Hikvision People
Counting system has the following advantages:

Accurate statistics, suitable for crowded flow, scene of complexity object;

Imperceptible behavior, It is harmless to humans through the video recording of
People Counting;

Construction is simple, It is simple to install cameras in public areas;

Function is powerful, it can statistics two-way People Counting;

Easy to operate, support client and web to view the data;

Convenient system expansion and renovation, system expansion and renovation can
be achieved through network configuration and adding new cameras;
Provides a variety of graphical reports of shopping malls, exhibition halls.
2. Regulation Applicability
Considering the widely deployment of the people counting cameras, the
iDS-2CD6412FDW/C that adopts the separated structure design between video collecting
unit and coding unit, has better field angle, concealment , shorter focus length, and price
benefit.
NVR is a good storage for recording and querying. We suggest DS-77, DS-96NI-ST,
series. They are not only be a storage, but also a good place to query people counting
statistic with daily/month/year report.
iVMS-5200 is widely adopted in the video surveillance industry, and provides people
counting module from v3.2.0. The front end video and real time people counting data are
previewed together and the data is sent to the platform to create the different reports.
3. Solution
Hikvision adopts iDS-2CD6412FDW/C+NVR/iVMS-5200 solution to help the management
to collect the people counting statistic information for the doors/stores/buildings by
different time requirement.
The people entering/leaving data is collected by the intelligent cameras that is flexible
deployed in different scenarios. The data is sent to the platform to create the reports.
Note: People counting data is saved locally inside the camera. So SD card is necessary
for people counting function.

3.1 System Structure
The system is consist of front end people counting camera, NVR and the platform VMS.
For small-sized retails, the “IPC+ NVR” mode has high performance with cost effective.
For large-scale retails, the “IPC+ surveillance center” mode is proposed. So the key
devices are people counting camera and the platform that provides the initial data and
gives the statistics reports.

Fig.2 Topology of people counting system
People counting system relies on the human body recognition algorithm, multi pattern
recognition algorithm and artificial intelligence algorithm technology, to distinguish people
and other objects in specific areas such as screen door stairs, identify regional head,
shoulders and feature, and determine the entering or leaving based on the customer’s
trace. And finally export the data in defined time.
The basic process of People Counting statistics system shown below:
Fig.3 Process of people counting
8
First Choice for Security Professionals
1. People pass the camera.
2. People counting system uses a specialized algorithm to record the People Counting
data.
3. The people counting data is sent to the NVR/ 5200 platform.
4. The NVR/ 5200 platform statistics the data and generates various types of report.
3.2 System Composition
For “people counting camera + platform VMS” mode:

People Counting Dome (iDS devices)
People counting algorithm is inside the cameras. No extra server is needed to collect
the data.

Backend (DS-96/77NI-ST)
The local output of back-end units will be used for querying the people counting data
and statistics.

Platform (iVMS-5200 pro)
iVMS-5200 Pro can use the client to display the data and reports.

Installation requirements:

For the vertical mounting, the horizontal distance (d) between the camera and the
access is generally assigned to 30cm spacing from the door line. If this distance is not
proper, the value can be ranged from 10cm to 50cm.
By default, the camera angel in vertical mounting generally has no need of adjustment.
Vertical installation is required to ensure the accuracy of visitor flow accounting. The
following data is for reference. Please consult our technique for details.

If the entrance is separated by the obstacles (such as the glass door, screen doors), and
the preview screen covers most of the bodies when going into and out of the entrance, it
will seriously affect the accuracy of statistics. At this point, every channel should be
considered as one separate entrance, and increase the number of cameras.

small, gives the great impact to the accuracy of statistics. In accordance with installation
requirements, see staff profile clearly and there are no special circumstances cases,
accuracy rate can be bigger than 90%. If it is overcrowded about the scenes or testing
personnel wandered along the line for a long time, the accuracy rate will decline.
Common interference conditions:

The detected scenes has big shadow;

The detected customer armed with large objects;

The detected customer pushing a shopping cart or a baby car;

and defining one width.
① Select “People Counting”
② Enable People Counting, Camera Calibration and OSD Overlay.
③ Configuration:
•
Draw a Detection line to define a valid range;
•
Choose a direction arrow on Detection line;
•
To set the line width by dragging the mouse position. The distance between the
endpoint of detection line (as shown at the left picture) and the width line should
follow the width of customers’ shoulder, in order to ensure the highest detection
accuracy.
•
Every reference line indicates the statistic shoulder width of historical people flow.
•
There isn’t any reference line if there isn’t anybody passing by. Therefore, it is
strongly recommended to take some walking in/out trial for having an accurate
width setting.

2. BI Module for querying people counting data
In the following two reports, the statistical object is the area, which is the logical resource
defined in the B/S and has a few cameras under it maybe. So in retail scenarios, one area
can be one store and has the store name here, which has its own people counting
cameras under it. So the statistical unit here is for per store, not per camera.
1) Customer Distribution: A report of the total traffic volume of every store during a period,
to have an idea that which store has the least traffic and then take action to get a
better performance
2) Customer Tendency: From the history of traffic volume for every store to expect the
trending of traffic volume during a day, a week or a month etc.

better.
4. System Applications
Suitable application scenarios:

Shopping Mall, Shopping Center entrances;

Super Market entrances;

Brand stores entrances;

Museum entrances;

Bus station, metro station entrance.
Unsuitable application scenarios:

Indoor surveillance camera image is not suitable for the people counting statistics
and it should be re-installed.

Scenic areas, parks and other outdoor places. Mainly because of the installation
position, the umbrella, outdoor wear hats, backpacks and other aspects will greatly
affect the accuracy.

Areas where need the accurate statistics. Mainly because the entering and leaving
statistics deviation in the region will increase with the time.
The store owners can arrange the schedule of goods storage and purchasing, based on
the people counting data. The data will also help the store owners to do the business
analysis and adjust sale strategy.
Suitable Scenarios below:
4.1 Single Store
4.1.1 Introduction
For Some small single store without chain management requirement, maybe one NVR,
one monitor, one fisheye are enough to cover all the store corners. Sometimes, dome
cameras and bullet cameras will also be adopted for the medium-sized stores. With the
26

And they more care about the statistic data about every retail store that has many
entrances maybe or all stores to give the business suggestions. So the statistic data and
chart is very useful.
Platform:
1)
IPC is added to the platform;
2)
Put the IPCs that are in the same store under the one area;
3)
IPC start to upload the data to the platform;
4)
Build the connection between new reports and areas in the client server (CS client).
For example, we may build different reports dedicated for every stores. One store
with many channels only create one report.
5)
Check the table data or chart directly by CS client;
6)
Export the data to the local computer to do the further analysis or long storage.
For example, In order to obtain accurate and effective People Counting data, GUCCI
China headquarters have decided to use video people counting statistics system. Via
network or VPN, all distribute stores are connected with GUCCI China headquarters.
People counting statistics system is customized according to the needs of GUCCI China
headquarters that create the separate reports for each store. It helps the GUCCI
headquarter to do the customer analysis and give the correct strategy adjustment.
