Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In this report, we propose a method for estimating the number of pedestrians walking in opposite directions, as in cases of a shopping street or a sidewalk in a downtown area.
The proposed method utilizes a compound-eye sensor that is constructed by placing two binary sensors for the pedestrians' movement direction and multiple binary sensors for the vertical direction of the pedestrians' movement direction.
A number of Monte Carlo simulations about the movement of pedestrians are conducted, and the output history of the compound-eye sensor is obtained in each simulation.
The simulation scenario with a small difference of the output history of the compound-eye sensor is selected to estimate the number of pedestrians.
Evaluation results show that in the field whose width is 8~[m] the relative error in the proposed method is the smallest by using $2times8$ binary sensors.
