Understanding the number of people and the flow of the persons is useful for efficient promotion of the institution managements and company's sales improvements. This paper introduces an automated method for counting passerby using virtual-vertical measurement lines. The process of recognizing a passerby is carried out using an image sequence obtained from the USB camera. Space-time image is representing the human regions which are treated using the segmentation process. To handle the problem of mismatching, different color space are used to perform the template matching which chose automatically the best matching to determine passerby direction and speed.
