Paper Abstract

Counting of passing people in passage or corridor is considered important for security or various investigations. This paper proposes a method for automatic counting of moving people with the different movement ways in the horizontal view. Each gravitational center of motion detection blocks is plotted in the plotting space, and the movement of people can be detected by Hough Transform without motion tracking. The intercept and the slope of a detected line represent the starting time when a person came into the scene and the moving speed of the target. The movement ways also can be recognized by using the difference of moving speed of detected persons. The experimental results showed that reliable detection and counting of passing people were realized by the proposed method.
