Drones can reach the unreachable; they tackle the messy, dangerous, or dull tasks unsuitable for human presence. In emergency management for mass gatherings, the knowledge about crowd can highly assist in providing timely response and effective resource allocation. Having low-noise and highly mobile aerial observation platform enables the increase of situational awareness, reduces risks and improves the effectiveness of the forces on the field.
Crowd monitoring can be achieved using computer vision based approaches and sensory data analysis with the aid of images captured using drones.
We design and manufacture drones which are capable of carrying cameras required for this purpose. Such data can be further developed at base station for the purpose of crowd flow monitoring, crowd management and control, as well as human detection.
