RFID and Vision Based Human Tracking System for Mobility
The population of many developing countries is on the rise and is mostly concentrated in urban and industrial regions. Residing in or near these areas is preferred by people as it drastically reduces their commute times even though it is costlier. Many daily commuters use public transport systems – buses being a major choice. These can cover short to long distances and also cover larger cross section of area as compared to metro, local trains. However, buses tend to get overcrowded during rush hours and can be completely empty rest of the times. This causes passenger discomfort and wastage of resources when the bus is running without passengers. In this paper, we proffer a model for monitoring and counting people in various scenarios at bus stops and buses based on RFID technology and Vision-based techniques.
