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.
