The EIT-KIC project CityFlows aims to improve the liveability of crowded pedestrian spaces through the provision of decision-support for the management of pedestrian flows. In the process to meet this aim, the CityFlows project tests and evaluates various innovative crowd monitoring techniques in real-life settings where large crowds meet, such as mass events, tourist spaces and transfer hubs. Moreover, the CityFlows project prepares a unique crowd management decision support system for market launch which incorporates these state-of-the-art monitoring techniques.
This project is funded by EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). EIT Urban Mobility acts to accelerate positive change on mobility to make urban spaces more liveable. Learn more: https://eiturbanmobility.eu
