Nice project and write up from Spruce.me:
How busy is our street?
How does the saying go? Oh yeah, “Location, location, location.” It comes as no surprise that how busy our street is has a direct impact on our bottom line. Not only is it important that our street has decent foot traffic, but it’s important that we’re open during the most busy times.
There are a lot of options out there for counting pedestrians. The most common solutions we found used a fancy sensor with a beam of some sorts. Similar to, but much more sophisticated than, the laser beam you have that keeps your garage door from crushing you.
Unfortunately, all the solutions out there were really expensive (like $100/month+).
