About the "Bicycle commuter"-Challenge

"Dive into the pulse of the city and track/map/visualize bicycle commuters using low cost sensors and open data to calibrate your measurements."

About OpenCV Bicycle Counter

The project has three major parts. * The detector: A C++ program which detects and tracks the bicycles and writes the count to a files. * The transmitter: A bash script, which runs as Crontab and which uploads the data to the TTN. * The client application: A website, which shows the counts an updates itself when a new count arrives.

This is just a prototype. While it runs ok on a laptop, it really struggles on a Raspberry Pi 3.
