Tailgating and piggybacking detection

The experts developed a software solution for accurate person counting in access control scenarios, enhanced by the use of a stereo camera. the key benefits include protection against tailgating and high person throughput. Anti-tailgating prevents an unauthorized person from gaining access to the secured area by following an authorized user. The solution is designed for high security applications such as automated border control systems.

Key features

  • Robust and reliable person counting using highly sophisticated human detection and tracking algorithms
  • Highly robust in coping with varying environmental conditions (e.g. rapid changes in lighting situation) through analysing high-quality 3D information
  • Piggybacking and tailgating detection by the robust separation of persons
  • Specially designed to avoid miscounting caused by the presence of carried items (e.g. backpacks or suitcases)
