Privacy-proof crowd management

Are you looking for a reliable way to measure and manage crowd density? Our wireless crowd density system enables you to accurately monitor and predict crowd numbers. Our system is privacy-friendly and does not use cameras or mobile devices to measure crowd density. Instead, we only use radio frequency signals to derive crowd size information. This way, we make crowd management for safety or smart mobility highly accurate and non-intrusive. We differentiate in 6 different aspects to traditional crowd management systems:
95% Accuracy
Compared to a bracelet scanning system, we can predict crowd sizes with 95%.
Real-time
Our wireless sensor network provides a new measurement every 50ms.
Privacy-friendly
Our technology provides a privacy non-instrusive way of measuring crowds without making any connection to a particular device that users would carry or taking any pictures of individuals.
Open data
Due to the privacy non intrusive characteristic of our solution can this data be integrated with publicly available datasets.
Regional analysis
An intuïtive crowd density map of different subregions is processed real-time.

About us

CrowdScan, a spin-off from imec and the University of Antwerp, has developed a system that measures the density of a crowd in real-time using a wireless sensor network. Based on six years of research at the University of Antwerp and imec, We developed a system to measure crowd densities without using camera images, mobile phone data or other privacy-sensitive information. The technology was validated at different large-scale events such as Tomorrowland. When the coronavirus crisis broke out, We immediately realized the added value of the technology for helping society adapt to the new needs of social distancing.

We offer four different levels of service, which means we always have a solution that fits your specific needs. Crowd Density Counting focuses on the basics: counting the exact number of attendees. Crowd Density Analytics goes a step further, by providing more details about the movements of the crowd. Crowd Density Prediction is used to make predictions about coming evolutions and movements, based on previous insights. Last but not least, Integrated Management is an integrated total solution that we develop in co-creation with the customer.

We apply these four levels in different sectors and contexts. We help future-proof Smart Cities in areas such as tourism, mobility and public safety. But we also offer tailored crowd management technology solutions in Event Safety & Management, for the Security of offices and/or company sites, and for Public Venues.
