Abstract: People counting is a problem applicable to various area. We propose a method to perform people counting using calibrated stereo camera & produced reflective marker. The proposed method easily recognizes the markers in the indoor environment without complicate preprocessing because it employs the infrared camera. The proposed method has been currently developed only for the use of people counting, & is planned to be extended later into the area of distinguishing ID’s of people.
