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.
