I am trying to find out how can I count the number of people in a room using the feed coming in from a CCTV camera fixed in one of the top corners of the room. The number of cameras can be 2 at max but 1 for now. The objective is to only be able to tell how many persons are present in the room, in real time. The precision of it is not too important, for e.g. the system could suggest a range like "there are more than 5 people right now".
Upon browsing and researching, I came across a lot of very complex algorithms and terms related to Computer Vision and Image Processing that I have not understood at all like OpenCV, HOG, Blob Detection/Tracking, Foreground/Background Subtractions etc.
I am a design student. I do not have a background in programming. But, about a week back I got introduced to Processing. So, if some could help me out here with some tutorials/references/code to have it work in a language like Processing for prototyping purposes.
Thanks in advance.
