About the Project

The large population of the area leads to transportation systems often running over capacity, putting managers, operators and transport planners under pressure to ensure that overcrowding does not endanger the safety of passengers and that vital transport links do not break down due to crowd congestion. Understanding crowd interactions with the environment is not only a necessity for crowd management and design of public spaces (airports, stations, etc.) but also vital in planning events with many attendees such as the sports event. Poor management may lead to tragic results. Hence, how crowds react to such events directly should influence the design and management of spaces. Unfortunately, there is a lack of automation, preventing this promising technique to be used in real-life scenarios. 

The project is currently accepting PhD applications every year.
