System of calculation of visitors of shop: as Google. Analytics, only on infrared sensors — and cunning statistics which you do not see

2 years, 7 months ago
In the 1940th you needed a special block which considers people on an input in shop. In the 1950th the camera with which film could be analyzed then was top of progress. In the late eighties in the USA and Europe (including Germany) infrared sensors or just counters of opening closing of doors on sealed-contacts began to extend. Now technologies slowly drift marking your broadcast packets of Wi-fi and Bluetooth (mailing of search of networks) to monitor movements of phone with an accuracy of 3 centimeters. Plus grows value of recognition of flows of people from video systems.

But let me tell about that invisible work which becomes based on normal counters of pass of the person, as in a tourniquet. Only without well-aimed blow to eggs.

Just a random pretty girl
The simplest implementation after the sealed-contact — intersection of an IK-beam

Can seem that except calculation of visitors in shop, such pieces are not necessary for anything. However if the simple linear analytics a heap allows to utykat them all shopping center even useful. For example, the competent shopping center on tracking of flows knows that the shop ceased to be pleasant to its audience — and precisely in number understands to the place of whom to put the new tenant.

It is, in my opinion, the best example of the fact that even simple as the log data can be used tens times more effectively, than usually if to put the head.

Assessment of a test coverage on the project

2 years, 7 months ago
To evaluate the best method whether well we tested a product – to analyze the passed defects. What our users, implementers, business faced. On them it is possible to evaluate a lot of things: that we checked insufficiently carefully what areas of a product should pay more attention, what in general percent of admissions and what dynamics of its changes. With this metrics (perhaps, the most widespread in testing) everything is good, but … When we let out a product, and learned about the passed errors, can be already too late: on "habra" there was about us angry article, competitors promptly extend criticism, clients lost to us trust, the manual is dissatisfied.

That it did not occur, we usually in advance, to release, try to evaluate quality of testing: how well and carefully we check a product? What areas lack attention where the main risks what progress? And to answer all these questions, we evaluate a test coverage.

Asterisk: Let's provide to VIP clients the first place in queue of calls, and we will also connect the client with the specific operator on preset time

2 years, 7 months ago
Asterisk is fun!
Every time facing some non-standard task I rejoice, rejoice opportunities again to plunge into this wonderful status of creativity, a brainwork. Recently such tasks appear often and it is healthy.
Designated in heading were implemented and work, so time to share the solutions with community came.

I will tell a little in more detail about everyone.

1. To organize the list of phone numbers of VIP clients.
Calls from VIP clients have to get on the first place to queues of Asterisk, for the fastest processing of their address. It is also necessary to have a feature to conveniently add and delete partners from this list.

2. To connect the client's call with the specific operator of queue on preset time.
To configure Asterisk so that in his "memory", on some preset time, there was information on queue, what of operators, accepted a challenge. The person from number 8913*75*5*0 called and gets to the operator of queue of Alyon and it is necessary to make so that during, for example days, the entering calls from this number were received only by Alyona and nobody else.
But there is more to come, if the client does not want to communicate with Alyona, then he can key * on the phone and next time will get already to other operator.

With the introduction on it I finish, it is a little Python, MySQL and cunning dialplan wait for you under a cat.
