People counter project from UbiMaker on Instructables.
In this simple project we’ll use a motion sensor to detect if an object is passing in front of our Raspberry Pi. Then we’ll count how many times that happens, and send this value to Ubidots.
People counters are typically expensive devices used in the retail industry to understand how shoppers behave. Thanks to Raspberry Pi and Ubidots, we’re able to build a functional people counter in a few hours and with a few bucks!
Once we send the people counting data to Ubidots, we can create nice graphs for analysis, as well as SMS/Email alerts.
