System Overview

The PYRO-Box is an extremely sophisticated and versatile person counting system that is suitable to many applications. The PYRO-Box can count both cyclists and pedestrians in urban and trail environments and can be used for both temporary and permanent installations. Using a PYRO sensor with its passive-infrared , pyroelectric technology and a high-precision lens , the PYRO-Box counts people passing within the range of the sensor by detecting their body temperature. Due to its well-engineered sensor and innovative ORION algorithm,  the PYRO-Box can simultaneously detect two people  walking in a slightly staggered formation. The PYRO-Box is easily moved to various counting locations and the sensor is self-calibrating making for a simple installation
