Its no secret that parks and nature help in reducing stress and before covid millions of people used to visit them. Taking a stroll in the park will never be the same as it was before COVID. Neither will be shopping or eating at your favourite restaurant. The fear of contracting the virus will always keep one on the edge, making the "new normal" not so normal.
How we built it
We only managed to build the algorithm to count the people inside a place. We used the pretrained MobileSSD model to detect if the object is a human or not. Then we use image processing and openCV to count the people who are inside.
Challenges we ran into
Challenges we faced
- Thinking of all the edge cases which a user might encounter
- Making the model was challenging.
- Thinking about it's integration with a cloud server and database was also challenging but interesting as well
- making the wireframe was totally new but very intuitive task
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very happy that we have make a mvp along with a really nice presentation
What's next for VATIKA
Releasing it as an API & integrating it with cloud.
