This paper examines the problem of determining the distribution of a number of indistinguishable moving bodies located in regions separated by sensor beams that can detect whether a body moves across them. We characterize the conditions under which an exact distribution of bodies can be determined, and compute bounds on the expected number of sensor observations required to determine this exact distribution for a certain movement model of the bodies.
