What It Does

Detects people within a designated area by displaying a green bounding box over them.

Counts people in the frame, how long they are in the frame, and the total number of people seen.

Sends the data to a local web server using the Paho* MQTT C client libraries.

This application counts people using the inference engine included in the OpenVINO™ toolkit and the Intel® Deep Learning Deployment Toolkit.
