In terms of total people volumes, a company called shoppertrak has been providing technology to do this for at least 10 years.

This used a hidden camera, and the people appeared as fuzzy blobs; it was relatively easy to see how long individuals are dwelling at a particular shelf or display. Camera technology has definitely come a long way in the last 10 years, so there are probably many more features available today. I've been out of that sector since May 1997.

[stevieb]: Torturing one of my dev RPis to turn four 5v stepper motors at the same time (via Parallel:: ForkManager for 50k degrees (a whole lot of full turns!). Let's see if it burns out or not.
[stevieb]: My GPIO expander chips should arrive tomorrow, but I think I'll throw a shift register against them and see if all six I have will turn at once. Amps are near the breaking point, but I want to know max sustainable V and I output.
