Abstract

There is a need for on-line information regarding people's densities and numbers when organising mega events. This is to enable the decision makers to have the most precise and updated information in order to take the right decision regarding safety issues, services, organisation of people and traffic. Human-based monitoring system could include high percentage of human error due to personal perception, change of view angle and tiredness. Therefore, for on-line monitoring system there is a need for automation. This study investigates the use of low-resolution infrared technology combined with video images as a tool to estimate people's numbers and densities. The initial results found demonstrate that the suggested infrared techniques are very promising for automated monitoring systems
