The accuracy of counting methods
Duration of the research: 2020 - 2022
TETRA-project with the support of Agentschap Innoveren & Ondernemen
Measuring crowds at events is and remains a challenge. The organizer, security personnel and other stakeholders often talk about different visitor numbers of the same event. Technological counting methods also contradict each other. The need for calibrations for different counting methods is high.
In collaboration with IDLab of the University of Antwerp, we investigate the accuracy of the following counting methods: click counting, quadrant counting, camera counting, wifi counting, mobile data counting and the MensenMassaMeter.
