Horizon 2020 Project - CrowdDNA
Technologies for computer-assisted
The world is experiencing rapid population growth and urbanization. Now, more than ever, there is a need to understand crowd behavior and implement efficient crowd management in places such as urban areas, transport hubs, stadia and large events. Technology is becoming the cornerstone of analysing human behaviour. Thus, the scientific community and industry have come together to tackle these issues in a large-scale research project called CrowdDNA.
CrowdDNA at a glance
Last but not least, in relation to the current COVID-19 crisis, CrowdDNA technology could shed light on various issues such as changing crowd behavior post-pandemic and social distancing measures. This could help to generate plans and policies towards making crowded places safer, which are potential hotspots of COVID-19 infections due to the high concentration of population.
