Crowd counter is a piece of software able to track moving features within a video clip. It works on the assumption that points that move together are most likely part of the same entity within the crowd. Another version of the crowd counter uses information about the direction of individuals' movement to estimate where they are looking.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
