In recent years, a few European universities and municipalities have developed techniques to actively monitor crowd movements and pro-actively manage crowded spaces using real-time decision support systems. These ad hoc and specialist pilots have shown that the liveability of the inner cities can be improved substantially. Yet, the piloted state-of-the-art Crowd Management Decision-support systems (CM-DSS) are currently not ready for large-scale deployment. CityFlows will make the necessary steps to prepare a generic CM-DSS for the international market. The most important outcomes of CityFlows are a boost of the quality of urban space and a license-based crowd management decision-support system (software). The CityFlows project establishes a set of city-scale demonstrator projects to illustrate the overall impact of the system and management strategies on the liveability for various types of crowded spaces and crowd management objectives.
The main outcomes of CityFlows are:
The five outcomes of CityFlows will be disseminated through a set of international workshops for public and private stakeholders and academics at the sites of the living labs during the runtime of the demonstrator projects and the generation of an educational package on pro-active crowd management of crowded spaces.
