The cameras count the number of people and analyse the crowd density and flow. Monitoring and decision support modules enable the organisers to predict and detect critical situations where the crowd density is about to exceed the safe level.
Additionally, an evacuation simulation tool is available to use after the event, based on visitor numbers captured.
Coordinating tasks and handling incidents
By equipping the staff with GPS trackers, the event organisers can locate them via the COP dashboard and thereby have an overview of the work force at all times. The purpose is to coordinate tasks effectively and improve response time in the case of incidents, since they can now also be detected by the system.
The results from the demonstration will be used to improve the solutions for Pützchens Markt in 2019.
