I am building a bi-directional people sensor and counter using an ARDUINO board.
am very new to this and programming as well.

any suggestons for schematics and the code.

thanks

How reliable does this have to be? What's the application?

It's notoriously difficult to get reliable people counting unless you install turnstiles or some such.

That's just not true!

Hire a non-blind guy watching people, and for every person going by bi-directionally, the guy pushes a button on an arduino board.

Dada! Cannot be any simpler or more reliable than that, assuming of course the guy doesn't get drunk.

THIS SYSTEM DOESN'T HAVE TO BE VERY RELIABLE BUT AM WONDERING IF ANYONE OUT THERE CAN HELP WITH THE CODE TO RUN A PIC16F8777A OR AN ARDUINO WITH TWO IR SENSORS S1 AND S2 TO PERFORM BIDIRECTIONAL COUNTING IN AND OUT. IN THE FIRST SEQUENCE BREAKING FIRST S1 AND THEN S2 WILL TELL THE MICROCONTROLLER TO INCREMENT THE COUNTER WHILE BREAKING THE SECOND SEQUENCE, FIRST S2 AND THEN S1 WOULD TELL THE MICROCONTROLLER TO DECREMENT THE COUNTER.THE MICROONTROLLER SHOULD ALSO STORE AND TIMESTAMP THE COUNTS AND BE ABLE TO PASS THE TIMESTAMPED DATA TO A REMOTE COMPUTER VIA BLUETOOTH OR WIFI.
ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
