“Prospects for the Design of Cognitive Systems that Manage the Movement of Large Crowds”

Ths paper describes the potential role of adaptive management designs for use in protecting and facilitating the movement of pedestrians in large crowds. The proposed design approach will augment a priori planned design methods that rely on preexisting physical infrastructure and prepositioned movable barriers. Designs that enable the adaptive management of pedestrians are needed where the events that affect the movement of people cannot be accurately predicted. Examples include emergency evacuations involving pedestrian movement and the mangement of crowds during large-scale public events.
