Pilot: Computer Vision software trialed to measure passenger flow on regular train routes in Lithuania
Technology company Agmis has introduced a Computer Vision-based software solution for measuring passenger flows in public transport. In February the company conducted a pilot project on ten local trains using information from existing video surveillance cameras. The experiment was performed in cooperation with the Mobility Innovation Center, whose stakeholders are AB Lietuvos Geležinkeliai (Lithuanian Railways).
Computer Vision-based software counted passengers entering and exiting the train at each stop, passengers with children, animals as well as passengers transporting bicycles. By augmenting real-time passenger flow information with ticket sales data, the solution can help to reduce the number of passengers traveling without a ticket.
