An Oblique Occupancy Detection And Occupant Counting System Utilizing Movement Sensors
This paper proposes a low-price however oblique method for occupancy detection and occupant counting function in current and future automotive techniques. It can serve as both a method to determine the variety of occupants riding inside a car or a strategy to complement the opposite units in determining the occupancy. The proposed technique is useful for varied mobility purposes together with automotive rental, fleet management, taxi, car sharing, occupancy in autonomous autos, and so on. It utilizes current on-board motion sensor measurements, corresponding to those used in the automobile stability control function, together with door open and closed standing. The vehicle’s motion signature in response to an occupant’s boarding and alighting is first extracted from the movement sensors that measure the responses of the automobile physique. Then the weights of the occupants are estimated by fitting the vehicle responses with a transient automobile dynamics mannequin. This two stage approach is additional used to find out what number of occupants are staying in the car. The effectiveness of the proposed approaches has been verified in automobile checks by quite a lot of occupancy configurations.
