What It Does

Learn to build and run an application that:

Monitor people's activity inside and outside a facility

Recognizes when inventory on a shelf is getting low

Utilizes a trained neural network to detect objects

The counter uses the inference engine included in the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit. A trained neural network detects objects within a designated area by displaying a green bounding box over them. This reference implementation identifies multiple intruding objects entering the frame and identifies their class, count, and time entered.
