Locations: Bilbao, Spain, Trikala, Greece, Pilsen, Czechia
This research project focuses on the dynamic capture of situational awareness concerning crowds in smart cities, using a variety of scenarios to recreate realistic crowd behaviour to help the host cities be prepared for emergency situations such as fire, flood and terrorism.
The system will focus on risk-based open smart spaces security management, cybersecurity shielding, suspicious activity, behaviour tracking, the identification of unattended objects, the real-time estimation of cyber–physical risks in multiple locations and measures activation for effective crisis management.
Crowd Dynamics International's role is to work with partners across the project including Exus, Bournemouth University, CS Group, Atos, Telesto, Crisisplan, Gap Analysis, Universidad de Cantabria, ADITESS, Eulambia, Enginsoft and P4All, alongside the host cities themselves. The crowd management solution is able to use data from other components of the system in order to run simulations of scenarios in the host cities of Bilbao in Spain, Trikala in Greece and Pilsen in Czechia. The scenarios focus on a variety of situations and events such as stadium evacuation, events with a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces and a festival which takes place on streets across the city.
