Evacuation assistance for the Düsseldorf stadium

Ever increasing numbers of visitors and the growing complexity of modern buildings present a great challenge for planners, operators and rescue workers, especially when managing crisis situations. The escape route system should ensure evacuation of a building without any long-lasting congestion. The evacuation assistant keeps track of the situation at all times by means of video pictures.  

The objective of the Vitracom HERMES project was to carry out specific surveys in dynamic people counting in video networks, and transfer the basic data obtained into a universally valid algorithm. The HERMES project was successfully concluded in 2011.
