Technical principles

hystreet.com measures the number of people crossing an imaginary line on a shopping street 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The laser scanners attached to the facades of houses generate a fourfold light curtain for reliable pedestrian frequency counting. This enables the counter not only to distinguish between different zones, but also to determine the walking directions of pedestrians. Pedestrians who cross an imaginary line several times within a measuring interval are counted anew.

Furthermore, with this technique, it is possible to distinguish between children and adults, as body size is also a measurable feature. On our website you will find only the pedestrian frequencies of pedestrians over a size of 80 cm.

Live Data

Be in the picture at any time and anywhere about the passersby frequency - with the mobile version of hystreet.com you also have the opportunity to conveniently access and analyze all data on the go. All important features and settings are available in the mobile version as well as the ability to save data.

Hourly retrieval

The pedestrian frequency is available for every hour of the year. Thus all daily maximum values are recognizable.

Eye-safe and safe under data protection law

The technique we use is eye-safe and invisible. Personal data is not collected with this technology. Thus we work with a 100% GDPR compliant solution.

99% counting accuracy

According to the manufacturer, a counting accuracy of 99% can be achieved with the technology used up to a flow rate of approx. 500 persons per minute.

Precise positioning of the laser scanners

Laser scanners (type PeCo LC) are permanently installed on the facades at all metering points. The devices are installed at a height between 4 and 20 metres. The device can thus optimally measure a road width of up to 32 metres.

For street widths over 32 metres, it is possible to measure from two opposite sides. The published data is always the pedestrian frequency of the entire street width (unless otherwise specified).

Verification of data

The laser must have a clear view in its measuring lines. If these once blocked by external circumstances (e.g. scaffolding, cranes, superstructures or treetops), temporary measurement inaccuracies may occur as a result. Even in case of power failures it is not possible to measure the frequencies. The measured data are therefore randomly checked and corrected if necessary.
