**What Counts in Public Transportation** — •Jan Sablatnig — Interautomation Deutschland, Berlin, Germany

This talk will tell you how an astrophysicist came to work with people counting sensors in public transportation. Further, how one can improve the counting results of existing sensors using standard physical and mathematical principles. And finally, how the most important part of finding solutions is not finding better numbers but rather of explaining your approach and finding a common base and standard to interpret these numbers. Therefore, surprisingly, as an off-campus researcher, much actual science, i.e. both *finding* rules about the subject researched and *spreading* that knowledge to those affected is required.
