Arduino People Counter for Rooms

So basically I made a project that counts how many people are in the room and how much people have walked in and out of a room.

I have made this project because I had the APDS-9960 already on my table and didn't really knew what to do with it jet, because of my bigger project, that I originally bought the sensor for, failed (The sensor doesn't really work with the ESP-8266).

I am still working on the project but it works like it should, except....

...the sensor has a limited range so it only detect "gestures" that are like ~3cm to ~20cm, wich is kinda sad,

so when you have, for example, a door witch is 1m wide, you really need to be on the side of the sensor or kinda walk in the middle of it.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Lets Get to the Fun Part

First you need the right library's

  1. SparkFun APDS-9960 Sensor Arduino Library
  2. U8G lib
  3. Wire.h

When you are wiring everything up you need to define an Interrupt Pin only, for example pin 2 on the Arduino UNO.

You can read more about Interrupts here.

#define APDS9960_INT 2 // Needs to be an interrupt pin

I have made some Icons that are already in the code. If you want to make your own Icons for OLED displays, you can check out this great Website.

Then what you need to do is go to the Code section that is marked:

//Image for [thing]

and replace the bytes with the Arduino code you got from the website.

NOTE: i have already configured all images to be 20x20 pixels, all except the "ICON" image wich is full sized(128x64 pixel).

Here is the full Code:
