Crowd Counting Application in Isarsoft Perception

The creation of applications in Isarsoft Perception is a functionality we have spoken about before (read our articles on the Object Flow and Object Count applications here). In this article, we take on the last application of the three made available to users, the Crowd Count application.

The name is self-explanatory, with the application being specifically designed to measure people in dense crowds. Even though the Object Count application can be used for the detection and counting of people, the accuracy of this one is far greater when detecting really large numbers of people, packed together in spaces such as stadiums, concert halls, event venues and parades.

The purpose behind creating an additional application just for crowd counting is simple: it is essential to event management of any kind that the planners and architects have highly precise data. Often prone to overcrowding, these areas are termed as safety-critical zones and faulty data could easily lead to accidents or injury.

Application Overview

The Application Overview can be accessed by clicking on the first column in the sidebar to the left. Click on the blue button entitled ‘CREATE APPLICATION’ at the top right, to create an application of your choice. In this case, it would be the Crowd Count application.

Camera Selection

This step in the process involves selecting the camera you want to create the chosen application for. The camera needs to be created before the application. (Read our blog post about how to create a camera here.)

Configuration

In this step, the application has to be named. Users can either create new tags (press Enter, after naming the tag to create it) or use existing ones. This is not a mandatory step. However, the addition of a tag does make it easier to find an application.

To elucidate with an example, different cameras if placed at the entrances of a building can have a common tag entrance .The overview can be filtered by the corresponding tag, so that only the cameras at the entrances are displayed.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
