Nowadays, every organization is totally depend upon the technologies and the now working on the concept of the automation means, it means that every day work will perform by the machine automatically. So, the error chances may be less and the work will be done in effective manner as well as in short range of time. Some of daily task of any organization is to calculate the person who have entered or exit from the organization or any building. So, in this, we discuss about the person counter which is widely used by the organization for counter. We also define the methodology on which the principal of the counter works as well as we also discuss various technologies used to count the person count. In this paper, we also compare the technologies. This paper will provide the comparison on the ultrasonic and infrared sensor-based counter.
