People counting system in crowded places has become a very useful practical application that can be accomplished in various ways which include many traditional methods using sensors. Examining the case of real time scenarios, the algorithm espoused should be steadfast and accurate. People counting algorithm presented in this paper, is centered on blob assessment, devoted to yield the count of the people through a path along with the direction of traversal. The system depicted is often ensconced at the entrance of a building so that the unmitigated frequency of visitors can be recorded.The core premise of this work is to extricate count of people inflow and outflow pertaining to a particular area.
