New Theta plug-in: Person Detection & Counting

This one is more business-oriented than the former ones.

Person Detection & Counting is a plug-in for Theta V (firmware ≥ 3.50.1) and Theta Z1 (firmware ≥ 1.60.1) that Ricoh Imaging released on the 13th of October, 2020.

QuoteOriginally posted by Ricoh Imaging:
People captured by THETA are detected and the count is posted to IFTTT(*). Posting of the count of people detected at the set time interval is repeated.

(*) IFTTT is a web service that links different services such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google Drive.

Usage Example 1:
Posting the number of people detected in a store to social media such as Twitter

Usage Example 2:
Taking a people count at an event and entering it into a Google spreadsheet

Counting persons in this covid era is quite useful for many people.

Interesting idea. It can be very helpful for organizations that have occasional needs that don't call for much more expensive counting products.


They might add facial recognition to future versions. "Take action X when new customers enter my store, and action Y when repeat customers visit."

(I can also think of some very bad applications, but all technologies can be misused. "Don't explode until there's a crowd of people.")
