Crowd & Data

Controlling human dynamics

Ensuring crowd safety during large-scale events is al well-known challenge in the field of safety management. Incidents following overcrowding show organizers have difficulty controlling human dynamics. Simulating crowd movements and converting insights into innovation continue to be major challenges for the event industry. Recent terrorist threats only add to the range of security risks. Of course, crowd management is about more than enhancing security. The innovations Open-House co-creates also serve the social and commercial interests of improving the visitor experience on subjects like parking, waiting lines and access to festival grounds.



Our INCROWD fieldlab is currently focused on developing image recognition tools. Machine vision solutions can greatly improve real-time crowd monitoring practices and models for studying crowd dynamics.
