Security Management Platform for enhanced situation awareness and real-time adaptive evacuation strategies for large venues for sports and entertainment

Objective

evaGuide is a Security Management Platform for enhanced situation awareness and real-time adaptive evacuation strategies for large venues for sports and entertainment. evaGuide aims to address the needs of the safety of large facility visitors during complex evacuation processes, following normal and abnormal events (crises) towards the creation of an easily deployable system that will be able to timely identify new threats, designate and sustain a Location based Dynamic Evacuation Route (LDER) that improves all corresponding response times under any circumstances. Moreover it will support the complete lifecycle of evacuation planning, simulating complex scenarios, training of safety personnel and assessment of the performed actions. The results of the market research that has been performed among the 300 member stadia of ESSMA (the European Stadium & Safety Management Association) revealed that there is a clear need for a project like evaGuide that addresses all the phases of the evacuation lifecycle and offers superior situational awareness, while at the same time existing and emerging regulations from FIFA/UEFA need to be met. The business sustainability/exploitation potential has been validated in the Feasibility Study, which is an integral part of this proposal. The project outcome will be a fully functional evaGuide platform demonstrator delivered for operational use to one stadium (one of the ESSMA member stadia, selected on M2). The demonstrator will perform according to the adapted requirements defined by ESSMA and the stakeholders involved (finalized on M12), will be fully integrated (by M28) and tested (M29), ready to be commercially exploited by the joint commercialization entity defined during the last months of the project (M30).
