    Network Rail Invests in People Counting Technology

    Posted by Natasha Gingles on Jul 31, 2014 4:28:00 PM

    Britain’s largest train stations are increasingly popular destinations for retail, food and drink – in addition to those traveling by rail. That’s what the data from more than 1,700 discreet infrared sensors deployed throughout Network Rail’s largest train stations uncovered in its effort to discover not just how many people use its stations – but actually how they use them as part of its goal to improve passenger perception.

    Reducing Commercial Energy Usage with Thermal People Counting

    Posted by Danielle Martin on Apr 4, 2013 10:00:00 PM

    Commercial buildings lose billions of dollars every year on energy.  According to the U.S. Department of Energy, office, retail, and service buildings are the biggest offenders wasting over 30% of energy consumed.  Energy inefficient buildings are not only expensive but increase harmful emissions that affect our planet.

    Smart Buildings: Maximize Utilization. Save Money.

    Posted by Brette Bennett on Jan 25, 2013 4:59:00 PM

    Thermal technology makes buildings smarter and more efficient. An integrated people counting solution deployed throughout a building increases its intelligence by improving utilization; helping systems constantly evolve to fluctuating occupancies; and lowering overhead costs through reduced energy usage.
