Monitoring the movement of pedestrians using low-cost infrared detectors: initial findings.

Conference Proceeding
Kerridge, J., Armitage, A., Binnie, D., Lei, L., & Sumpter, N. (2003)
Monitoring the movement of pedestrians using low-cost infrared detectors: initial findings
Monitoring the movement of pedestrians in everyday environments is difficult, especially if accurate data are required. Typically, data pertaining to the origins and destinati...
