Planned Outcome

Datasets: laboratory data

for detailed and high-precision measurements in controlled situations, both for small groups (force exchanges between individuals) and larger ones (force propagation, spatiotemporal correlations in crowd movements)

Datasets: numerical data

resulting from simulation, to extend the coverage of laboratory data in terms of density levels, scenarios, intensity of physical interactions

Datasets: field data

of less precision and quality, for validation purposes

New generation of crowd simulation techniques

that can predict crowd behaviours at macroscopic scales from numerical models of physical interactions

New method for crowd motion analysis

that is capable of estimating the intensity of physical interactions between individuals from the observation of macroscopic crowd motion features


which indicates levels of intensity of physical interactions in a given crowd
