People Count with Direction

It would be really useful, especially within retail to show people count but with direction of entry vs. exit.

 

At the moment we are obviously seeing total count, which in some cases can be very confusing especially when a door entry can show 8000+ entries yet most utilised time would show the more accurate measure.

Hi @Priesty This can be accomplished using MV Sense. On a very high level, the MV Sense API gives you access to a subsequent feed of the objects (person) and their location within the frame of a camera. Using this, you can determine directionality. 

You can get more information on MV Sense our Developer Portal. Or, find MV Sense solutions (as well as solutions using other Meraki APIs) built by our technology partners on the Marketplace

@Saralyn can you please tell me more about using the API to determine directionality?  I didn't see anything specific in the developer portal.

Hi @Ericka. You would be able to determine directionality using the MQTT feed from MV Sense. The MQTT feed has a option for raw detections that include location as x,y coordinates. You can find info specifically on the MQTT feed with location coordinates here
