People are still gathering in mass despite the social distancing order to prevent COVID-19 spread.

What it does

From the CCTV cameras, relevant authorities can know if an area is not being crowded with people. It can be used as a crowd monitoring tool to detect large crowd gatherings.

How I built it

GluonCV AI/ML can detect objects such as people from an image. Therefore we can count the density of people in an area being monitored.

Challenges I ran into

Legality to get publicly available CCTV footage.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

What I learned

Need to complete AWS Computer Vision: Getting Started with GluonCV from CourseRA.

What's next for CountThePeople

Learn how to improve the algorithm to calculate the distance between detected people.
