A complete overview of site, crowd and staff
A central tool for the event organisers will be the Common Operational Picture (COP) which gives a complete overview of the venue and location of staff, thus supporting the operator in the management of the event.
The COP gets data from the multiple MONICA sources deployed at the event, which is displayed on screens in the control room, with one dashboard for each focus area.
For sound solutions, the operator can monitor sound levels detected by sensors inside and outside the venue, making sure the permitted sound levels are not exceeded. The operator can also watch crowd levels and compare them with the venue capacity, redirecting crowds if necessary.
In terms of handling security or health incidents, the operator gets alerts when people or the system report incidents, and cameras in the proximity can be used to validate the incident.
The alert is forwarded to relevant actors, and the handling staff is monitored in case back-up is needed. In certain instances, the alert goes directly to the emergency services on site.
The COP also gives an overview of the staff and their positions. If assistance is needed, the nearest colleague can be located, contacted and notified of type of incident before arriving.
