TECHNOLOGIES FOR COMPUTER-ASSISTED CROWD MANAGEMENT

Project description

Managing crowds in public spaces

Crowd management is a difficult job. Large crowds gathering for an outdoor event and heavy pedestrian traffic are events of serious concern for officials tasked with managing public spaces. Existing methods rely on simulation technologies and require the measurement of simulation variables that are difficult to estimate. The EU-funded CrowdDNA project proposes a new technology based on innovative crowd simulation models. It facilitates predictions on the dynamics, behaviour and risk factors of high-density crowds, addressing the need for safe and comfortable mass events. The project suggests that the analysis of some specific macroscopic characteristics of a crowd such as its apparent motion can offer important information about its internal structure and allow the exact assessment of its state.
