Heatmap and Traffic Flow Analyzer ACAP is an embedded application running on Axis cameras to provide heatmap, dwell time and traffic flow information for retailers to better understand their customer traffic and behavior. Real-time analysis data is available through our web-based CMS which can be accessed via mobile phone or PC browser.
The frontend ACAP software works in conjunction with a backend CMS Server (procured separately). The frontend camera software performs edge processing and transfers proprietary data, instead of video stream, back to the CMS server for analysis and reporting. This edge processing configuration significantly reduces the network bandwidth, especially when a large number of frontend cameras are deployed.
The recommended cameras are M3047, M3048 and other ARTPEC-6 based cameras (e.g. P3227, P3228 etc.)
The camera should be mounted on the ceiling and horizontally to avoid distortion. For M2047P, the FOV is 185 degree. When mounted on the ceiling at 2.2m high, the coverage will be around 10 x 10m^2.
Our heatmap and traffic flow analyzer provides the following statistics:
Traffic flow directions report– reporting the percentages of user defined directions over user defined period of time (default is today)
