The new QORTEX People Counter solution, S3-2WSO, is offered as having double the coverage compared to previous iterations. The new release, says the company, enables users to accurately monitor and control occupancy limits in public transportation and public venues while protecting individual privacy.
The QORTEX People Counter S3-2WSO is built from the company's S3-2 LiDAR sensor and features a 100-degree horizontal field-of-view (FOV) - twice that of previous models. This enables mounting at a low height, ideal for spaces with low ceilings such as in older buildings and public transportation areas such as bus terminals and train platforms.
The QORTEX People Counter also features the company's SensorFusion functionality, which fuses data from multiple sensors to seamlessly monitor openings up to 30 meters wide, such as entry/exit points for retail malls, stadiums, and other large public spaces. QORTEX People Counter can detect a broad range of traffic patterns, including lingering, single file, side by side, bi-directional, tailgating, and more. In addition, the solution provides 98% accuracy in both indoor and outdoor settings.
The device's electronic beam steering - which uses no moving parts - ensures immunity to vibration and provides over 100,000 hours mean time between failures (MTBF), or over 10 years, says the company. In addition, unlike cameras, the LiDAR-based solution does not capture or store any personally identifying information (PII), eliminating PII risk and protecting traveler privacy.
"We are proud to continuously adapt our high-tech solutions for the needs of our customers around the world," says Teresa Liou, Senior Director of Product Management at Quanergy. "With social distancing remaining our new normal, QORTEX People Counter S3-2WSO makes it easier for transportation agencies to maintain public health and safety."
