People Counting

V-Count is the world's leading manufacturer of 3D people and customer counters and retail analytics systems. Their flagship product, V-Count 3D Alpha, is powered by ASUS Tinker Board and provides a 98% counting accuracy average using stereo vision, the current leading technology for people counting. Stereo vision technology is the most accurate and reliable way to measure people’s footfall activity in and out of a physical space.

Every business with a retail or other physical space should count customer traffic to see the bigger picture and gain insights into their business. People-counting data can provide shopping centers, retail chains, museums, libraries, sporting venues, banks, restaurants and a variety of other businesses make well-informed decisions. V-Count 3D Alpha has a bi-directional feature that simultaneously count people entering and exiting a space and report these numbers separately. Moreover, by subtracting the exit count from the entrance count, businesses can know when a location has the most occupancy as well as the peak hours for visitor traffic.


With a powerful and modern quad-core ARM-based processor — the Rockchip RK3288 — Tinker Board offers significantly improved performance versus other popular single-board computers (SBCs). An ARM-based Mali™-T764 GPU and fixed-function processors enable a wide range of uses, including high-quality media playback, gaming, computer vision, gesture recognition, image stabilization and processing, as well as computational photography and more.

Tinker Board features standard maker connectivity options, including a 40-pin GPIO interface that allows for interfacing with a range of inputs. Tinker Board is equipped with one DSI MIPI connection for displays and touchscreens. The secondary CSI MIPI connection for compatible cameras enables computer vision and much more.
