As IoT solutions are highly versatile, a wide range of industries now use them to enhance efficiencies and optimize operations. For example, footfall trackers improve operations at retail stores, malls, hospitals and help boost sales and visitor experiences.
Staff exclusion technology forms part of a broader footfall counting system that uses 3D AI camera sensors to count and track people in a store, integrated with BI analytics software to transform count data into actionable insights.
The system can track and count people, measure distances between individuals, and distinguish between objects (for example, shopping carts and humans, or distinguishing between a large-bodied person and two people walking very closely together).
Learning how to engage customers from different demographic profiles more effectively is proving to be a significant benefit for retail stores, and footfall counting technology is the key to unlocking those benefits.
Consumer demands today include controlled social distancing, mask-wearing and sanitizing, as well as product and service accessibility. Customers want to feel safe; they don’t want to struggle to find what they need, and they want to be served promptly.
Queue management is essentially an alert system connected to a footfall counting sensor that quantifies queue demand in real-time and notifies staff when certain predetermined variables such as queue length or time are exceeded.
