Public Transport

Our innovative public transport product is at the forefront of the next generation of automatic 3D passenger counting sensors. The APS-R-PoE is specifically designed to meet the rigorous standards of the transportation industry. And, as one of our premier products, it acts as a gateway to new methods of analyzing of ridership structure and flow.

Case 01

“In the marine sector, passenger counting has been undertaken manually for many years. We are required by law to know the number of people on board each vessel at all times, so an accuracy of only 90% would be unacceptable – we needed a system that could achieve at least 99% accuracy. The installation of People Sensors has been groundbreaking for our sector. We will be rolling the system out across our entire fleet.”

Geoff Symonds, COO – MBNA Thames Clippers

Case 02

“There is a guaranteed 98% accuracy for the automatic passenger counting system using People Sensing technology. Keolis has the system installed in about 90 buses of different makes, and in several cases, the accuracy has been proven to be higher than 99%.”

Petter Eistrand, KEOLIS

Case 03

“In December 2015, the accuracy of passenger counters in the St. Valentin region was 99,6%, which is really outstanding and underlines the extraordinary capabilities of the People Sensing system.”

Wolfgang Schuh, ÖBB-POSTBUS

HELLA Aglaia Peopel Counter APS-R to sense clients and passengers


The APS-R-PoE is our state-of-the-art passenger counting sensor, which utilizes 3D image processing algorithms to analyze the flow of people with a counting accuracy of 98% or better. The APS-R-PoE enhances usability, maximizes emerging remote connectivity options and automates many procedures that typically require manual intervention, saving on the costly labor required to install, commission, and operate traditional APC units.

A version of the APS-R without Power over Ethernet is also available. Contact us for details.
