Crowd analysis has found its significance in varied applications from security purposes to commercial use. This proposed algorithm aims at contour extraction from skeleton of the foreground image for identifying and counting people and for providing crowd alert in the given scene. The proposed algorithm is also compared with other conventional algorithms like HoG with SVM classifier, Haar cascade and Morphological Operator. Experimental results show that the proposed method aids better crowd analysis than the other three algorithms on varied datasets with varied illumination and varied concentration of people. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.
