    Q: At what height is a target considered a child?
    A: The 3D counter will classify as 'children' all targets lower than 51.8'' (130cm), typically +-5% margin of error.  Adjustable setting in 3DScope II firmware version 2.4 and later.
    Q: Is the accuracy for child counting the same as for adult counting?
    A: Small targets, which are classified as children, do present more complexity to be recorded accurately (hidden by high targets, very close together, close to trolley/stroller/cart, etc.). Therefore, SMS presents small target counting as 'Child Trending' rather than highly accurate counting.
