specially one that generates the output i need.


You are welcome to use my patent-pending non-blind guy idea: hire a non-blind guy and whenever he sees someone, he punches a button on your arduino.

At $12.75/hr, it is the best and most reliable people sensor money can buy.

The last people-counter person didn't use that idea I think, maybe you should review your pricing.

A PIR sensor can be used to detect movement, but unless you arrange things very carefully so that people are forced to move through 'turnstile' areas I don't see how it could be used to give any indication of how many people are moving into/through/out of an area. I would have thought that image recognition based on a webcam would be a more promising approach to try if you need to count people.

I know this isn't what you asked for, but GeoVision (ultra-kludgey but high tech & cool DVR, you'll pay hundreds for it though) has a function that does that.

Maybe the video will help you with an idea, maybe not ;)
