Estimating the number of people in a particular scene has always been an important topic of research in computer vision and digital image processing. People counting has wide applications in scenario ranging from analyzing the customer's choice and improving the quality of service in retail stores, supermarkets and shopping malls to managing human resources and optimizing the energy usage in office buildings. While there exists algorithms for counting people in a scene, some algorithm have set their benchmark in performance with respect to efficiency, flexibility and accuracy. In this paper, an attempt has been made to perform people counting using Deep Neural Networks (DNN) on comparison with existing image processing based algorithms like Histogram of Oriented Gradients with Support Vector Machine (HoG with SVM), Local Binary Pattern (LBP) based Adaboost classifier and contour based people detection. The proposed DNN based approach has higher accuracy at 90% and less false negatives. © 2018 Authors.
