Human Locator Adds Life to Advertising Displays
Human Locator is a camera-based technology that tracks the motions of humans in ways that can them be used to control advertising signage as they pass by. As described on their website, "The Human Locator analyses a camera feed in real time, sending detailed information about people's location, size, and movements. This data is then used as input to control projections, video, graphic animations, and sound. The Human Locator offers a complex analysis procedure and precise controls for accurate tracking in a variety of conditions. The variables it outputs can be used in an infinite variety of ways." In essence, it's another step towards the advertising world depicted in the Tom Cruise movie Minority Report.
