The Placemeter is a high-tech compact sensor that, when attached to the inside of a window, can be used to keep count of vehicles, bicycles, people and more.

This sensor is equipped with an optical sensor that can capture video at a healthy field of view. It is powered by a microUSB setup, and takes only a few minutes to get up and running. The device is intended to be fit inside window frames up to about two floors in height.

The Placemeter sensor could make for a great data-collection tool for businesses looking to understand how many people walk by their store, or marketing agencies trying to understand how many people come into the vicinity of their billboard advertisements.
