Smart entrance counter solution with XENSIV™ 60GHz radar sensor

With Infineon XENSIV™ 60GHz radar inside, Infineon’s smart entrance counter provides a solution to counting the number of people who enter and leave a location. Whether it’s a restaurant, a store, theatre, or a meeting room, this solutions primary capability is to count the number of people entering and leaving.

The solution uses XENSIV™  60GHz radar to accurately count the number of personnel entering and leaving through access points. By counting the number of people inside your location you can limit the chance of overcrowding.

In addition to providing a traffic light system at the entrance, you can connect to the cloud and provide your customers with a GUI (Graphical User interface) that they can check to see how busy your location is, and enable them to choose a time where its more suitable to come.             

More than just hardware, Infineon provides the software algorithm that works alongside the radar.



Simple example of how smart entrance counter works

Discreetly positioned radar (illustrated below connected to display screen) enables a traffic light system giving the approaching user a visual aid to proceed or stop. Smart algorithm counts people arriving and leaving, to enable programing to show red/stop when capacity is reached.
