    A people-counting system using hybrid RBF neural network is described. The proposed system is effective and flexible for the purpose of performing on-line people counting. Compared with other conventional approach, this system introduces a novel method for feature extraction. In this Letter, a new type of hybrid RBF network is developed to enhance the classification performance. The hybrid RBF based people-counting system is thoroughly compared with other approaches. Extensive and promising results were obtained and the analysis indicates that the proposed hybrid RBF based system provides excellent people-counting results in an open passage. A supervised clustering method is proposed for initialising the hybrid RBF network. In order to substantiate the introduction of the hybrid RBF and the proposed supervised clustering algorithm, test results on a vowel recognition benchmark dataset are also included in the Letter.
