Abstract: A Spectator Counter is a device used to count the number of people traversing a certain passage
or entrance over a period of time. The device is often used at the entrance of buildings,
Amusement parks or stadia so that the total number of people entering and leaving them can be
electronically counted and recorded. The aim of this Paper therefore is to present the 'Design and
Implementation of a Spectator Counter' for safety, accurate generation of revenue and to prevent
overcrowding public places. This device is unique because it offers a relatively accurate means
of managing capacity and controlled by software, which can be modified at any time the system
demands a change. Here, the system has one (1) Service Barrier or Gate modeled and simulated
using a PIC 16F877 Microcontroller as the major component and a Micro-C programming
language as the software.
Two active infrared sensor systems are used to detect spectators one after the other coming
toward the entrance of any public place. From the sensing system a signal conditioning circuit is
used in order to get a suitable and desirable output signal that the microcontroller could
recognize, process and display the real number of Spectators inside the amusement Park on the
seven segment display screen.
In conclusion, this counting system can be easily adapted by any electric gate and any form of
control which requires the use of sensors. They can be employed in organizations such as, the
public car parks, residential parking lots, examination halls etc where no form of security
measure is a priority.
It is recommended that the design be modified by incorporating an Exit Barrier to accurately
determine space availability.
