Passenger counting software for video applications

Impulse Accelerated Technologies : 21 January, 2010  (New Product)
Impulse develops software for Hella Aglaia for use in application for computer vision 3D passenger counting system
Impulse Accelerated Technologies has announced that Hella Aglaia has completed a design for a Hella Aglaia computer vision 3D automatic passenger counting system using Impulse C to FPGA tools and Xilinx FPGAs in an ASIC prototyping flow.

Based on 3D- Sense Technology Hella Aglaia's self contained Automatic Passenger Counting System AVC 1 offers a counting accuracy greater than 98%. It is possible to verify all results at any time, through the comparison with video recordings. The AVC 1 can be used in any environment which offers a flexible installation height and a minimum distance to passengers of 10cm. An adjustable counting threshold allows measurement of heights for the distinction to be made between children and adults.

"About half of the Impulse C to FPGA users are developing video and image processing applications with our tool set," says David Buechner, VP at Impulse. He continues, "National security operations, automotive suppliers, and vision systems developers are using Impulse C design methods to help process very large, sometimes overwhelming amounts of incoming video data from multiple sources. Impulse users program FPGAs to process different parts of video feeds in parallel: filtering, preparing and parsing information at near real time or line speeds. With Impulse software, programmers report developing FPGAs 50% faster than standard VHDL or Verilog methods and improving existing FPGA projects 80% faster than standard HDL methods."

"Impulse tools provide an easy to learn ANSI C programming environment for Hella computer vision system development," says Spyridon Nikolaidis, Engineering Manager at Hella . "The support team was very responsive and helped us meet our prototyping and system development schedule. In addition to the Impulse compiler, we used the Impulse HDL test bench generator and were very quickly able to compare our Impulse C results with a ModelSim report. We estimate we saved significant development effort using Impulse tools."
