Forecasting in real-time of how a crowd is likely to move in the next 15 minutes can be of great value to crowd managers. They can increase the comfort and safety of everybody in the crowd. To face this challenge two different approaches are being developed at Delft University of Technology.
COVID-19 has rapidly spread across the world. Very evasive measures have been required to limit the impact of this new disease on the general health of the population. The CityFlows team has worked hard to come up with a mitigation strategy for the CityFlows project process.
The very first face-to-face meeting of the complete set of CityFlows project partners has been realized. Besides some organisational issues, this meeting was also used to acquint the partners with the latest developments regarding the crowd monitoring systems of the city of Amsterdam.
