Fields of Application
Queue Detector can be applied wherever queues occur. The application´s analysis results are then used for resolving them. If for instance in a supermarket a queue arises, a new checkout can be opened at an early stage. The same can be applied for ticket counters at train stations, check-in counters at airports etc. At airports, the head of security can get informed if extra security personnel is required at the passport control.
Queue Detector is assigned to detect queues in up to three areas. Waiting persons never remain absolutely motionless. The appearing movements are used for the calculation of the ﬁlling level in the areas. The quicker motion of people passing by can be ﬁltered.
Two time periods can be deﬁned:
The Swaying time range: deﬁnes the time period in which a person has to move for being considered.
The Considered Time Range: can be conﬁgured separately for every region. It deﬁnes the time considered time range and will be applied for the triggering of alarms. After a queue has been detected for a deﬁned percentage of frames within this period, the application will create an alarm.
