    Hi, I have to count the number of people and survey the movement of everybody in a room. For example: if in my room there were 100 people I need data of position of everybody. How can I do this?is there a way to do it? thank you!

      You may want to check out Cyclopes. It's a max object, that cost about $100, that takes in a video signal and allows you to manipulate it. I'm not sure if it will do the job for you, but check it out.

      Take a look at the cv.jit objects: They're a fantastic place to start when trying to find solutions for a project such as this. I think if you were to use a camera or multiple cameras from a birds eye view (ceiling looking down at floor) that would be your best bet. Then do an image comparison of the room without people to the video feed with people and you will only pick up the people in the room. Then use cv.jit.touches to track the different masses moving through the room. Obviously this is a bit of simplified explanation of how to tackle a big project but that's the direction I would go in to get started.
