Human Traffic Count
Human Traffic count forms the fundamental for all sensors data collected from the comprehensive AST Smart Toilet system as it is directly proportional to the exact toilet utilization rate for the corresponding responses by the service provider(s).
AST re-engineered the commonly used Infra-red “IR” technology (IR is highly inaccurate due to its physical limitation) and developed a unique human body imaging metrology with edge technology to accurately count the footfall entering the toilet. An accuracy of upto 95% is proven with this measurement method in the current sites. To cater for different building configuration, we provide a pair of bidirectional human traffic count version for male and female toilet located at a distance apart.
Multi-directional Human Traffic Count
In the scenario that the male and female toilet are sharing a common corridor, the multi-directional traffic count is preferred.
In this example, when someone enter through the pink line and subsequently cut the yellow line, it means this person has entered the female toilet. And if the other user entered via the pink line and subsequently cut the cyan line, it means that the person entered the male toilet. Those that remains in the dark blue box after passes the pink line will not be considered as toilet users.
Bidirectional Human Traffic Count
If the male and female toilets are located at a distance apart, a pair of bidirectional traffic count is preferred.
In this example, when someone entered the red box and subsequently cut the dark yellow line, it means that this person has entered the toilet. Since it is dedicated to toilet so it will not differentiate the gender as the toilet has already preset. Vice versa, if someone cut the dark yellow line from opposite direction, it means that this person has exit the toilet.
