Sophisticated sensor technology for accurate passenger counting
Bus Tram Subway Train Platform Doors Ferries
The IRMA MATRIX sensor is a proven and efficient tool for passenger counting. It is fitted with reliable time-of-flight technology for the determination of the number of persons and objects in 3D. This allows public transport companies to automatically count passengers and reliably establish the number of passenger-kilometres travelled. Thus, transport performance can be accurately documented, and revenue determined based on performance.
Ready for modern real-time service
The sturdy sensor housing is well armed for daily operation in buses and trains and can be mounted effortlessly. Via a connector, IRMA MATRIX can be easily connected to Ethernet or CAN and configured. Passenger numbers can be transmitted in real time, making them available for use in other modern public transport services.

IRMA MATRIX counts on proven technology
IRMA MATRIX has been operating at a very high level of accuracy for many years now. When being utilized for passenger counting, a 3D sensor matrix measures the distance from objects with a resolution of 500 pixels. This system uses time-of-flight technology. The integral signal processor then evaluates the 3D material, transmitting it to the on-board computer or cloud.
Reliable passenger counting
Based on the 3D frames captured, IRMA MATRIX can automatically determine accurate passenger numbers. Thanks to precise sensor definition, objects like wheelchairs, strollers or bicycles can be detected and displayed separately. Even in low light, passenger counting with IRMA MATRIX is accomplished successfully, as sensor operation does not depend on ambient light.
Effortless mounting of the IRMA MATRIX
Manual adjustment of the sensor is not required. IRMA MATRIX is available as a flush-mount or surface-mount version - saving installation time. The straightforward installation concept will be retained for subsequent generations so that upgrades to the latest IRMA hardware are quick and simple.
