⁽¹⁾The laser scanners used by us, installed on house facades, generate a quadruple light curtain for reliable pedestrian frequency counting. With the used eye-safe and invisible technology, a counting accuracy of 99% can be achieved up to a flow rate of approx. 500 persons per minute, according to the manufacturer. Personal data is not collected with this technology. This means that we work with a solution which is 100% harmless to data protection law. hystreet.com measures the number of people who cross an imaginary line on a shopping street. The measurement is permanent and counts the passers-by in both directions. Pedestrians who exceed this imaginary line several times within a measurement interval are counted anew.
