In this article we propose an Arduino based population density monitoring system designed to efficiently monitor the population density in a particular area. The proposed system uses Arduino microcontroller to estimate the population density. This system uses pressure sensitive objects to efficiently predict the density, the prototype also uses display LEDs to indicate the density and help to evenly distribute the population.
