In MONICA, the modelling of crowd dynamics from video footage is based on state-of-the-art deep learning techniques within the fields of computer vision and Artificial Intelligence.
The MONICA security solution consists of a series of applications which, in combination, can be used to monitor and manage security at large events. Especially CCTV cameras play a central role in the security setup of MONICA, providing the security personnel with important information about crowd size, density and flow. On top of this, the personnel can be notified of potential incidents such as fights or high-risk queues, all of which enables a quick response time and intervention.
A recent demonstration of the MONICA crowd counting algorithm shows a high accuracy of 72% which is expected to further increase with the labelling of more data.
