This article describes and compares new technologies for the automatic counting of passengers on both rail and road vehicles, highlighting their advantages and issues, with general indications on their respective levels of outlay. It also deals with monitoring systems for weigh-in-motion, used as an indirect measurement of the passengers on-board1.

Nowadays, passenger counting operations are often developed on surveys, throughout the territory and using manual procedures: even though these may be capable of providing highly accurate values, which can be taken as a reference point in analysing the precision of the automatic systems, the manual procedures are not usually homogeneous in surveys, since they inevitably depend on the operator who performs them and may also be influenced by the time of the day – early morning versus the last hours of the day – and by a repetitive task.
