We believe that crowds can be accurately and precisely measured while respecting the privacy of the individual. And we are convinced that smooth real-time processing of these measurements forms the basis for swift, calculated decisions on the management of these crowds.
- Worldwide evolutions and events show that monitoring and managing crowds has become crucial. Just think of increasing urbanisation, the rise of mega-events and the Covid 19 pandemic. At the same time, there is a growing concern for privacy, resulting in ethical debates and, ultimately, appropriate legislation. With our solutions, we can balance both.
- Crowdscan was born in June 2020 and is a spin-off of IMEC and the University of Antwerp (UAntwerp), both leading institutes with academic fundaments. We have developed technologies that seamlessly combine all required properties in a unique way: accurate measurements with real-time processing, with respect for privacy and without intrusion of personal devices. All this on a scientific and evidence-based basis.
We have a well balanced founding team that is committed to grow rapidly. Due to high technological and organisation expertise of the team, a deep understanding of the fundamental problems can be addressed. We aim to be the reference technology partner to do crowd analytics for the public domain. Based on our unique value proposition we focus on the added value to take actions that matter.
