Monitoring movement in crowds

Could you develop a solution that helps to monitor movement in crowds where public safety is at risk?

The challenge

The innovation exchange, in partnership with HMG and KTN, is looking to identify innovative solutions to a number of challenges around overseeing, anonymously, the movement of people in shared spaces to ensure crowd safety.

Have you got the solution? 

Your solution should be commercial or demonstrate late-stage research.

The following sectors are of particular interest:

  • Transport systems
  • Events and crowd management
  • Health and safety
  • Security and defence
  • Urban systems

This research will only be looking at the movement of people in scenarios where public safety is at risk, and data will be anonymised to protect privacy. Any tools developed should consider and apply where appropriate, advice and guidance published by the National Cyber Security Centre.

HMG will only contract with organisations who are Cyber Essentials accredited.

Closing date

This call will be open until 7 May 2021.
